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

Mindfulness

Mindfulness At Ramsay School, we believe that students are able to make responsible and good decisions when they are regulated. Learning strategies to help with self-regulation is significant to academic and socio-emotional learning. Teachers utilize Mindfulness in a variety of ways throughout the day with students inside the classroom including, core practice.  We believe that when students are empowered through self-regulation strategies and emotional literacy, their well-being improves.

Healthy Snacks for Learning

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 free” snacks and encourage our students to recycle, collect organics and create less waste.

Additionally, we have children at our school who are allergic to nuts and related nut products as well as other allergies. The specifics and the severity are different for each individual. At Ramsay School we discourage the consumption of these nut products at recess and during the lunch hour. We also encourage parents of children with severe allergies to educate their children in making responsible decisions about how to manage these allergies on their own. Parents must indicate any special health concerns on the school registration for their child and are encouraged to ensure classroom teachers are also aware of health issues.

Please see Illness & Medical for allergy information.
