Principal’s Message

Prouille Catholic Primary 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’.

We, the Prouille School Community, warmly welcome you and your children. We trust that your association with us will be an enjoyable and rewarding one.

Prouille is a school that recognises each child as being unique. We are a school community where a friendly, trusting collaboration between all members of the school community is fostered for the ongoing development of each individual. It is a school where all children are known by their name.

The community at Prouille is extraordinary and is particularly characterised by the “welcoming” parents, staff and students. This invaluable trait remains constant year in year out because of the effective Pastoral Care structures in place and the spirit of generosity that permeates all aspects of school life. Prouille is an integral part of Holy Name Parish, Wahroonga, and the wider community.

Diverse curricula activities initiated and maintained by a team of caring and dedicated education professionals, well maintained grounds, modern facilities and parent involvement combine to produce a dynamic learning community. This provides us with much to celebrate beyond outstanding academic achievements such as Joint Highest Scoring School in Maths Olympiad 2018; exceptional success in Music where an original Musical is written, produced and performed every two years as well as an extensive school music program; as well as Sport and Creative Arts being a hallmark of Prouille.

Our vibrant curriculum ensures that rich, relevant and varied learning opportunities are offered to all our students. This includes being a member with the Global Learning Community through our role in the New Pedagogies of Deep Learning Program.  Children graduating from Prouille, do so having had made relevant connections to the contemporary world and with necessary academic skills to be life- long learners.
