St Lucy's School

St Lucy's School for Children with Disabilities


At St Lucy’s, we view each child individually in order to unlock their unique potential and to encourage them to become independent. With our main campus in Wahroonga, Sydney and satellite classes on the Northern Beaches we cater to children from all religious backgrounds.

We provide a holistic education, offering outstanding academic programs taught by special educators. Access to the programs is supported through the involvement of the Therapy Team. It is part of our mission to raise awareness of issues pertaining to disability in the wider community.

St Lucy’s School, responsive to the needs of families since 1938, is redeveloping its facilities to become a K-12 school for 240 students with disabilities by 2024. This expansion and our future vision is in response to the needs and hopes of our students and their families, which have been expressed over many years.

St Lucy's is financed in large part by State and Federal funding but has a large shortfall.  The future of State and Federal funding at this time is uncertain.  It costs approximately $49,000 per year to provide an education to a child at St Lucy's.  The school recognises that the families of these children have increased financial pressure to provide therapies, equipment and medical care their children require. For this reason the school fees are kept artificially low. 

The children at St Lucy's travel a long distance each day to get to school because it is the only one of its kind.  St Lucy's Students aim to thrive not just survive.
