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.

Visit the CBE website to learn more about health and wellness in schools.​​​​​

Health & Wellness

Healthy Choices

The Niitsitapi Learning Centre follows the CBE Administrative Regulation 3047 - Nutrition, which promotes healthy eating. We are asking families to be guided by Alberta Nutrition Guidelines for Children and Youth.

We partner with Mount Royal University student nurses and our school nurse for our Comprehensive School Health Initiative. We follow nutritional guidelines; encourage physical activity and overall optimal wellness for the Mind, Heart, Spirit and Body.

Breakfast and Lunch

Thanks to the generosity of the Government School Nutrition Program (SNP), Meals on Wheels, PC Children's Charity and Brown Bagging for Kids (bb4k), The Niitsitapi Learning Centre offers a free nutritious breakfast and lunch program daily (Friday no lunch / early dismissal) for all students who need it, and there is always available food for snack. 

Students are welcome to bring their own snack and lunch. 

Students are asked to bring in their own labeled water bottle each day.

For more information on allergies and lunchtime please visit our Illness & Medical and Lunchtime pages.
