Our School

Fallingbrook ES

We acknowledge that our learning is taking place on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin Territory. We thank the Algonquin Nation for hosting us and recognize their enduring presence on this land.

Our School

Fallingbrook is truly a neighbourhood community school, positioned on a large property adjacent to serviced parkland. Our students have access to soccer fields, a baseball diamond, a fitness structure and an outdoor rink, as well a play structure on our Primary yard. We accommodate many community needs, which encourages an ongoing dialogue between the school and the families of our community. Our goal is to establish a positive and enjoyable school climate for students, staff and parents alike. This positive school culture prepares our students to become life-long learners. In addition, Fallingbrook will strive to provide a wide range of extracurricular activities in the arts and in physical recreation so that children will be motivated and encouraged to be responsible citizens of the future and well-balanced individuals within our school, country and the global community.  We are a balanced school day, with two recesses and two nutrition breaks.

Our Students

The approximate enrolment at Fallingbrook is 310 students.  Approximately 30% of our population is registered in the Regular English Program and the 70% in Early French Immersion.

Our Staff

Our dedicated staff of approximately 35 professionals includes teachers, educational assistants, early childhood educators, custodians, office administrators and the administrative team. They all work together in a professional learning community directed at promoting academic excellence for every student. Additional staff expertise in Special Education, computers, athletics and music further enrich the learning experience of our students.

Our staff members continually upgrade their skills by attending summer courses, school, board and ministry initiative workshops and seminars and other professional development opportunities. Our school community also benefits from the services of a Library Technician.

Our Community

We are proud of the level of parent participation at Fallingbrook. We have a School Council and a Parent Teacher Council (PTC) which provide opportunities for parents and teachers to work together in order to improve the social and academic programs for all students. 

For the past 34 years, PTC fund-raising has enabled us to enhance the curriculum by purchasing early literacy books, library bookshelves, audio visual equipment, media carts and projectors, climbers, physical education equipment, an electronic scoreboard, stage lighting for the gymnasium and True Sport banners.
