History[edit | edit source]
In 1883, a pariochal school for boys was built at 8 rue Pétrelle, for the boys of the neighbourhood, from kindergarten (boys and girls) to the certificate of studies (boys).
Created under the direction of Abbott Hutellier, it was called the école paroissiale de garçons Saint-Vincent-de-Paul. It was run by the De La Salle Brothers until 1901, then by a non-religious leadership, until the Society of Mary (Marianists) from 1942 to 1956.
In 1956, the Archbishop of Paris placed the school under non-religious direction. Classes in commerce, second year, and third year were opened. Students began to prepare for the certificat d'aptitude professionnelle (CAP) in business.
In 1962, the commune gave the school the official name of École privée technique Pétrelle. The children were directed to the école Saint-Vincent-de-Paul (kindergarten) and école Notre-Dame-de-Lorette (primary school).
Until its closure in 2007, the school continued to offer new courses and prepare its graduates for work in business, secretarial work, and commerce. It had around 900 students.
The school eventually closed on 30 June 2007 due to financial difficulties. The location was renovated in 2008 and currently holds primary classes for the Lycée Rocroy-Saint-Léon .
Association[edit | edit source]
In 2007 the association « Les Anciens de Petrelle » was founded for former students of Petrelle. A first meeting took place in May 2007 in the area of the school, and a second in May 2008, in a hall of the Mayor of the arrondissement.
