Brooklands Elementary is a K-5 Community School. We acknowledge that we are on Treaty One land, the traditional territory of the Cree, Anishinabe and Dakota peoples and homeland of the Métis Nation.
Brooklands School was built in 1959 and is the third building to inhabit this site. Cressy School (1901) and Krawchyk (1911) preceded this current building. We have approximately 210 students in grades K-5. We may be small in size but big in spirit! Our community is made up of diverse ethnic families and we enjoy learning together in an inclusive and welcoming multicultural environment. Many of our students are second and third generation Brooklands School students. At Brooklands School, we believe that students are most successful when home and school work together and so we value the active involvement of our parents in partnering with us as their child’s first and most important teachers!
We offer full day, every day Kindergarten and Multi-age class configurations grades 1-5 and we include Indigenous Education programming happening in all our classrooms. We strive to provide every student the opportunity to develop critical thinking and decision making skills, a strong feeling of self worth and an understanding of his or her social responsibility. We believe that everyone in our community is important and so the relationships we create are the foundation of our school. We believe in creating life-long learners!
We work hard to teach and learn as a staff so that we can do our very best for the children in our care. Families are essential partners and are always welcomed to join in our learning through volunteer opportunities. As a school that follows the tenets of Restitution, we believe that mistakes can provide an opportunity for growth and developing resiliency. We also believe that respecting and appreciating individual diversity enriches all of our lives. Most importantly, we believe that a well rounded educational experience includes social, emotional and physical growth opportunities.
Whether you have been a part of our school for generations or are joining us for the first time, we welcome you to our ‘school family’.
Mr. Rex Ferguson-Baird
