Winter Concert

Our Winter Concert is coming up on December 22 at 6pm! Students and staff are busy practising and rehearsing. We hope you will join us to see all the classes' wonderful performances that they've all been working so hard on. Please see our flyer for more information.

From 5:00-5:45, our WE Club will be selling some beautiful handmade crafts to raise money for disaster relief and education in Haiti. We appreciate your help and support for this worthy cause. Also, the School Council will be selling pizza and holding their annual Silent Auction. Proceeds will support initiatives and resources in the school. 

We are looking forward to seeing you on December 22!

Remember, you must have your community coaching card and police record check in order to help with any school team. In order to get your coaching card, you must attend an information session. Once you have your card, you are good for life! The next sessions are:

All Sessions begin at 4:30 PM and run until approximately 5:15 PM:

Attendance is Important

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.

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.

Our web site is one way we can demonstrate these values. Click on the menu items to find out more about our school and please visit often.
