Brock Public School

Brock Public School, located near College and Dufferin, was founded in 1887. In 2009, Brock was a finalist in the Garfield Weston Award for Excellence in Education. Our talented and dedicated staff work cooperatively to nurture excellence, responsibility, teamwork and joy through learning. Staff provide a broad range of activities for students to enjoy and become involved in. Students are encouraged to practise teamwork while having fun and keeping fit as they learn about themselves, each other and the world in which they live. Brock is very proud to be an ECO certified school.

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.

Grade 7/8 Podcasts


Students in Mr. Vaillancourt and Mr. Dantowitz's classes have been working hard with our coach, Ms. Wander on podcasts! We were able to purchase some very professional recording equipment for students to use. Their first assignment was to create a podcast about their name to honour and share identities. Here are a few samples for your listening pleasure!

Name Podcast 1- Leo

Name Podcast 2- Sahana

Name Podcast 3- Iris

Permission Forms

This year you must complete all permission forms online i.e trip forms, athletic forms.  To do this you must navigate to the "Excursion Management Application" page, create an account and then login.  Here is the link: 

Once you are logged in you should be able to find all of your permission forms in the drop down menus.

You will be informed when there are forms to be filled out by the school so be sure to listen closely and check emails/backpacks.

Important Safety Procedures

During this unprecedented time, we ask for your cooperation to follow these procedures to ensure a safe environment for our students. 

Here are some key points:

  • Students should enter the school with their classes at 8:45 a.m. from the schoolyard. Supervision starts at 8:35 a.m. Please do not drop students off earlier (daycare drop off is located by the gym entrance). Families are asked to drop off students and exit the yard immediately to avoid congestion.
  • Pick up must be done in the school yard. Students are supervised by staff until 3:35 p.m. only. Kindly exit school property as soon as possible to avoid crowding the area.
  • The parking lot is for TDSB and Early Learning staff only. Cars parked between 7:15 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. without TDSB permits will be ticketed and subject to towing. Pass this message on to neighbours who park overnight.
  • Students are urged to come to school on time so as not to miss valuable learning time.

We thank you for your cooperation and adherence to these policies to ensure a safe school environment.

School Cash Online

School Cash Online is a new tool for you to pay for a variety of events and items (field trips, pizza days, spirit wear, etc.) during the school year. Please consider using this quick and easy form of payment by reading the parent info letter and instructions to sign up. If you have any questions, please contact the office. 

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.

Additional Yard Safety Reminders

We are proud of the schoolyard we have and the green space it provides for our school community. To help keep the playground as clean and safe as possible, we would like to remind you of our school safety rules.    

Students are expected to:

  • Stay on the playground during school hours and not go to the parking lot or the street
  • Play cooperatively with others
  • Not engage in physically aggressive behaviour
  • If hurt, go to the teacher on duty who will assist them with a band-aid or have them go to the office
  • Not climb the baseball diamond fixture or the stairs belonging to the childcare play area
  • There is to be no scooting or cycling on school property during school hours 

Parents are asked to:

  • Call the office if they have a concern regarding behaviour to their child on the playground. Parents are asked not to pursue or question other students and/or parents.
  • Should you walk your child to school and bring your dog along there are 2 options:
  1. Please tie your dog with a leash to the north fence or the fence on Brock Avenue and then walk your child on to the school premises.

  2. Walk your child to the north school entrance, say your good-byes there, and watch them get into the playground safely. Then you can give them a good-bye wave.


For the privacy and safety of our students, parents are asked not to take pictures or videos of students on the playground and report to the office any person seen doing so.

By following the above we can make sure our children are safe. Thank you for helping to keep our playground a safe and welcoming place for our students.

Brock Rocks!

We are proud to share with you our school song, "Brock Rocks!"
