Fall Back Into Learning

Welcome to CBE Connections

Board of Trustees

Advocating for More Learning Spaces

We are a couple of months into the school year and gaining a better sense of how full our CBE schools really are. About one in ten schools are being overflowed to neighbouring schools and others are quickly reaching capacity. We are working with government to prioritize the building of new schools, and have recently submitted a request for 80 new or relocated modular classrooms that can provide temporary learning spaces where they are needed most.

Acting Chief Superintendent  
Embracing Safety, Kindness and Compassion for All

The world can be an uncertain place, but CBE schools must be neutral places of safety, kindness and compassion for all students, staff and families. Our school communities are rich with many cultures, belief systems and ways of identifying, and that is always worth celebrating. As a public school system, we welcome and support students and staff from incredibly diverse backgrounds, perspectives and beliefs. This is what makes us such a strong, resilient, supportive school system. #WeAreCBE.
