Health & Wellness at the CBE

At the CBE, we believe in a whole school approach to health and wellness. We call this our Comprehensive School Health (CSH) approach. CSH is about healthy eating, active living, supportive social environments and positive mental health. As a system, we focus on the following four areas: healthy eating; healthy relationships; physical activity; and positive mental health. Each school creates its own approach and goals for health and wellness.

Health & Wellness

Healthy Eating 

The CBE values student health and this is demonstrated through the Nutrition Guidelines established through our Administrative Regulation 3047 – Nutrition. We appreciate your support in this regard by sending healthy lunches and snacks. We ask you to remind your children that due to allergies and food restrictions, students are not permitted to share food. 

Daily Physical Activity and Recess

All students at our school participate in healthy physical activities through Physical Education (P.E.), Daily Physical Activity (DPA) and recess. It is an expectation that all students actively participate during these times. Unless the weather is below -20C all students will be expected to go outside during the day. Please ensure that your children are well dressed for the weather. If you require assistance in providing this clothing, please contact the office. If your child is unwell and therefore unable to go outside, please keep them home until they are healthy enough to participate.
