Principal’s Message

Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School Miranda is a co-educational school located in the beautiful suburbia of Southern Sydney. The school is a friendly and welcoming community which is firmly embedded within the parish. Children are encouraged to strive to achieve their best in all areas of the curriculum. Our classrooms are happy, engaging and interactive learning spaces.

We are a school that aims to provide a contemporary Catholic education catering for the diverse needs of our students. We believe in the importance of teaching students to be highly literate and numerate. Music, E-learning, Reading Recovery and P.E. teachers ensure skill development in reading, 21st Century skills, ICT, performing arts, gymnastics, music, game skills and swimming.

The school provides many opportunities for students to grow and succeed through sport gala days, chess tournaments, inter-school debating, public speaking, student leadership programs, community engagement and social justice initiatives. Our primary students are given opportunities to participate in representative sport.

History

The school opened with 28 pupils in Miranda church-hall January 1950. The Presentation Sisters (Wagga congregation), who had recently established a convent in Sutherland, agreed to staff it. 

In recent years the school was refurbished. At the beginning of 2010 the extension on the library and the new multi-purpose room were completed and ready for use. The COLA (Covered Outdoor Learning Area) and new rubber surface was completed with a grant through the Building the Education Revolution Project and was opened in March 2010. It was blessed by Bishop Julian Porteous.
