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.

Recess Snacks

We would encourage children to have a healthy recess snack. Research shows that children learn and retain information better when they have had water to drink and have eaten a healthy snack. As an environmentally conscious school, we recommend “garbage-less” snacks and encourage our students to compost food waste. 

Additionally, we have children at our school who are allergic to nuts and related nut products. The specifics and the severity are different for each individual. At Glendale School we discourage the consumption of these nut products at recess and during the lunch hour.
