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

Daily Physical Exercise

We strongly support families in making the journey to and from school an opportunity for physical fitness. Our health professionals regularly remind us of the importance of daily exercise and fresh air and so we encourage students to walk to school or use their bicycles or scooters. We have bicycle racks by the school parking lot and students will need to bring their own lock and bicycle helmet. Families may be willing to model healthy living by walking and biking with your child. Dressing appropriately for the weather makes even cold days an opportunity for health and fitness.

It is important that all children have the opportunity for fresh air and free play and therefore we provide a recess break each day for 15 minutes and students go outside at lunch for approximately 20 minutes. Please help your children develop good habits for appropriate dress so that they are prepared to be outside each day. We recommend that every child keep gloves and a toque in a jacket pocket.  Some families may wish to consider providing an extra pair of pants for wet/chinook days. If the weather is too cold (-20C with wind chill) or too wet, they will remain indoors and will be supervised by our staff.
