School History

Dunlace Public School was opened in 1962, replacing the original Oriole Public School that served the community since 1826. Our school serves approximately 320 students and represents 28 different language groups from 30 countries around the world. We are part of Learning Centre 1, Learning Network 26 and Ward 13. Louie Papathanasakis is the Superintendent and Rachel Chernos-Lin is the Trustee.

We are a triple track school offering regular English, Early and Extended French Immersion programs.   The French Immersion and Extended French Programs are considered specialized programs at the TDSB and have specific admission procedures. Please visit for information regarding the process, the deadlines and the advertising of the information sessions that are offered.

The school site includes a full gym facility, and a Maker Space housed in the library. The grounds include: two adventure playgrounds (one belonging to the childcare centre and the other to the school); a kindergarten playground, basketball hoops; baseball diamonds; a soccer field and outdoor classrooms.

An independent Daycare centre, whose philosophy supports and extends that of the school, is housed in the building.
