​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, Active Learners

All children in Grades K - 5 will participate in daily Phys. Ed. to promote a healthy, active lifestyle.

Students in Grades K – 5 participate in daily Physical Education activities that will be both inside and outside, regardless of the month. In addition, students will go outside everyday (unless it is down-pouring rain, blizzarding snow, or temperatures are colder than -20 degrees Celsius) for morning and afternoon recess or on community walks and explorations. 

Students are encouraged to bring only healthy/brain-food snacks to school, in accordance with CBE Administrative Regulation 3047 - Nutrition.  They should have a water bottle for snack time and for hydration throughout the day. When possible, snacks should be portable (hold in one hand), and as healthy and litterless as possible. 


Northern Lights School is an ‘Allergy Aware’ school.  More information is on our Illness & Medical page.
