History[edit]

The Toc H Public School opened its doors in 1978.

The school is sponsored by the Toc H Society and administered by the Board of Directors. This Society is registered as a charitable Society under the Act of 1955. Toc H is an international Christian social service organization having its origins at Poperinge, in Belgium during the First World War.

The school opened with only the first and fifth standards.

The first teacher ever hired by the school was Mrs. Roselyn Menendes to teach the first grade. During the second year, the second and sixth standard were added. In 1980, the school bought its own property (a reclaimed land) at Vytila with a water frontage. The school is still located at this current location.
