Amazing experience at St Lucy’s so far. In the quest of finding a special needs school for my child; I approached St Lucy’s and got a reply from Kerrie Dietz via email almost a year back as we were to move to Sydney the following year. Her professionalism, attention to details, providing information, replying on emails, and keeping us up to date about the timelines and events was incredible. We had contacted couple of more schools in Sydney however as the process of communication was occurring simultaneously, the difference in communication and conduct was distinctly observed. St Lucy’s clear communication clearly stood out. They are excellent in their communication.

Upon visiting the school on the open day, we met Kerrie and Leigh personally they were extremely helpful and understanding. They answered all our questions with great patience and were exceptionally accommodating and professional. We saw the classes and how beautifully the kids were engaged through visual aids, in the classrooms, in the playground, in the pool and how much care was being taken by the staff for the safety of the kids. The doors were locked and the right to open the door is only with the staff so that the kids remain safe.

This was followed by the child’s observation, the feedback and parent’s interview, orientation, and school picnic. I met the Principal, David Raphael at the interview round and he is exceptionally learned, empathetic and kind. David mentioned in the orientation that the journey of special needs parents is often lonely; it shouldn’t necessarily be which was really touching and emotionally felt. In the picnic, school encouraged parents to share their contact numbers and organize play dates for the children. St Lucy’s truly believes in community building and providing support to parents to engage and socialize. They organized orientation and picnic for the children and the purpose was to provide every possible detail to parents and help children get acquainted to the school and peers to make the transition smooth. Noteworthy that all events were extremely organized; minutest details were shared beforehand keeping our child’s comfort and other children’s health as primary goal.

Once our child got through the school, the frequency of emails and communication increased providing us every possible details right from uniform, accessories, parent portal etc. So far it has been beyond amazing to deal with St Lucy’s. Thank you, St Lucy’s School!
