École Belmont
Journée scolaire équilibrée/Balanced School Day

​École Belmont will be following a balanced school day timetable.  Horaire equilibre Balanced School Day.pdf

This approach:

  • promotes longer sustained blocks of teaching and learning
  • meets the nutritional needs of students in a more balanced way
  • provides more time for quality physical activity and play

This organization of the day is called a Balanced School Day.

The Balanced School Day consists of two nutritional/activity breaks (one 40 minute break and one 50 minute break) in which children have time to eat and play.

(Given that Kindergarten is a half-day program they are not included in this schedule.)

The link between good nutrition and learning is well known.  Children concentrate better and their ability to learn is improved when they eat food from the four food groups outlined in Canada’s Food Guide to Healthy Eating. The Balanced School Day timetable allows for students’ nutritional needs to be met. For children who miss breakfast, or only want a small amount of breakfast, the foods eaten during the first break provide the key nutrients for an active day. As well, when children eat a nutritious meal in their second break they are not as hungry when they arrive home from school.
