Prouille Catholic Primary School in Wahroonga, is a Kindergarten to Year 6 co-educational school located in the Diocese of Broken Bay in Sydney’s North Shore. The school was founded by the Dominican Sisters in 1950; the school flourished under the Dominican Sisters until 1989 when the first lay principal was appointed.
The name ‘Prouille’ comes from the place in France, Prouilhe, where our patron saint, St Dominic, began his Order of Preachers. Our school motto is ‘Veritas’ which means to ‘seek the truth’.
Prouille strives to educate all children in the search for truth in a changing and challenging world. We strive to nurture and support the development of each child through an authentic and holistic education that caters specifically for all students’ individual needs. We strive to empower our students to responsible and compassionate action that provokes hope and optimism.
Please note that children enrolled in our school do not need to be of the Catholic faith but are expected to embrace the Catholic values that we pride our students on.
The staff and school community are dedicated to excellence in teaching and learning.
The facilities include administration offices, staff rooms, school hall, library, toilet block, canteen, undercroft area and resource rooms. All play areas are resurfaced, landscaped and all classrooms have air conditioning and interactive whiteboards. The school has wonderful outdoor play equipment with on-site tennis courts and a vegetable garden.
The school has classes from Years K-6, with students primarily drawn from the Parish surroundings which include the suburbs of Wahroonga, St Ives, Turramurra, Warrawee, Westleigh, Normanhurst, Asquith and Mt Colah.
The school population is currently over 200. Our class sizes are small yet personal enough that every child is known by their name.
