The team at Brooklands School acknowledges that we are on Treaty One land, the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Cree, and Dakota peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Brooklands School. As principal, I have the privilege of working side by side with an educational team of teachers, support staff, students and parents that thrive on innovation and recognize the powerful role and responsibility of public education in an ever-changing world. At Brooklands School, we believe in a community approach to education and have built a reputation of caring, cooperation, and excellence.
The staff, students and community have all contributed to this reputation. Our work together has been recognized locally, provincially and nationally.
Brooklands is a community-oriented school, a part of the St. James-Assiniboia School Division, and serves the community bounded by Notre Dame on the south, Route 90 on the west, Logan Avenue on the north and Keewatin Street on the east. The current building opened in 1959 and is the third building to inhabit this site. Cressy School (1901) and Krawchyk School (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!
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
