Streetproofing Tips

We would like to take this opportunity to remind students and parents how to be safe both at home and in the community. It is important that students have the knowledge and skills to keep themselves out of harm's way.

Families, please review the following Streetproofing Tips for Elementary (K-6) and Streetproofing Tips for Intermediates (Grade 7-8) with your children. 

Let's work together to keep our community safe.

Message from Director John Malloy & Chair Robin Pilkey Re: Events in Quebec City

Please see the following TDSB statement about the recent tragedy in Quebec. We will continue to work together to support all our students and to create safe, equitable, and nurturing learning environments.

Our Newsletter Has Gone Green!

Starting January 2017, all monthly newsletters will be posted ONLINE only.

As an eco-school and after taking into account the large number of families who are active online already, we are endeavouring to reduce our paper consumption by not printing a newsletter for each student. We will however, have a small number of paper copies available in the office. Please have your child drop by if you would like one.

You may view a PDF of the current newsletter at http://schoolweb.tdsb.on.ca/brock/Newsletters.aspx. The link is also pinned to our Twitter page @TDSB_BrockPS.

We try very hard to have the newsletter finished by the end of the month. However, please be patient as sometimes this is not possible. The grade 7s want to make sure it’s their best work. Some months may be combined as well (for example, a March/April edition).

We hope you continue to read and enjoy our newsletters that the grade 7 class works so hard to complete each month!

Kindergarten Registration 2017

Kindergarten registration will take place on Thursday, February 9th between 3:30 and 6:00 pm. This is for families with a child born in 2013 who will be starting JK in September 2017. Families will have an opportunity to visit a classroom and meet our current kindergarten teachers and ECEs. 

Here is our Kindergarten Registration flyer. To ensure a smooth registration process, please bring the originals of each of the following documents:

1. Child's birth certificate or passport
2. Two pieces of identification that show your home address (for example, utility bill, driver's licence, bank statement)
3. Child's immunization card and child's health card
4. Proof of custody (if applicable)

We look forward to seeing you on February 9!

Attendance is Important

Our school social worker, Aliza Shupac, spoke with the School Council about how both regular attendance and punctuality impact the success of students' academic careers. Please read about how to build the habit of good attendance early in your child's school career. More great information is also in this informative powerpoint presentation.

School begins at 8:45am for grade 1 to 8 students and at 9am for kindergarten students.

Brock Public School located near College and Dufferin was founded in 1887. Our talented and dedicated staff work co-operatively to nurture excellence, responsibility, teamwork and joy through learning. Staff provide a broad range of activities including music, visual arts, drama and sports. Students are encouraged to practice teamwork while having fun and keeping fit as they learn about themselves, about each other and the world in which they live.

Brock is an arts focused, ECO certified school with walls that are covered with student art. Our Rooftop Garden engages students with the natural world in a hands-on ecological learning environment. In 2009, Brock was a finalist in the Garfield Weston Award for Excellence in Education.



As part of the Toronto District School Board, we value
  • each and every student;
  • a strong public education system;
  • a partnership of students, schools, family and community;
  • the uniqueness and diversity of our students and our community;
  • the commitment and skills of our staff;
  • equity, innovation, accountability and accessibility; and
  • learning environments that are safe, nurturing, positive and respectful.
