We would like to welcome our students and staff to CBHEC/A for the 2022-2023 school year. 

We hope everyone has had a chance to relax and spend time with family and friends over the summer months. The staff at CBH is preparing for a great school year and we are all looking forward to greeting students on Tuesday, September 6, 2022. 

We are pleased to offer free school supplies to our Grades Primary to 12 students again this year. Students will need to bring their own backpack, lunch box, water bottle, indoor sneakers for Physical Education class and headphones/earbuds.

We have a wonderful school community. At CBH, we foster student achievement in academics and social emotional development. We believe that building relationships with students and families is so important for a great school experience. 

Please consider joining our School Advisory Council. Our first meeting will be on Monday, September 19, 2022, at 4:30 p.m. at the school or you can attend virtually if that is more convenient. If you are interested in volunteering or sharing a special skill/talent, please visit us at our Meet the Teacher event on Thursday, September 22, 2022, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  At this event, there will be extra-curricular displays, games and prizes for families as well as a sign-up opportunity for community members who are interested in sharing their talents and interests. Together, we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all students. 

We would also like to welcome new staff and thank our SRCE Operations Department for their hard work in cleaning and preparing our school for opening day. 

Welcome to Cape Breton Highlands!
