St Lucy's School

A community enriched by difference

St Lucy’s School History

St Lucy’s School was founded in 1938 by the Dominican Sisters. The Catholic Church had requested to establish a school for children who were blind. The school was created under the patronage of St Lucy, the traditional protectress of the blind.

Originally located at Homebush (1938), in 1959, the school moved to Wahroonga, next to the Dominican Convent and Prouille School, also established by the Dominican Sisters.

Over the years, St Lucy’s has moved from the education of students with vision impairments to encompass students with a wide range of disabilities, including mild to severe intellectual disability, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and sensory impairments.

To cater for a growing population, state-of-the-art facilities have been built including The Fra Angelico Centre for Creative Arts (2009), The Dominic Centre for Primary School (2019) and the Catherine Centre for Secondary School (2024)

In 2019, the school has expanded its offering to include high school education, opening with two Year 7 classes. As of 2024, St Lucy’s School is a K – 12 Co-educational School.
