Celebrating 125 years of Public Education in the Shire
About our school
Miranda Public School opened in 1893. Its site has changed several times.
The first building was a rented room in what is now Miranda Park, opposite Sylva Avenue.
By 1955, the school had a population of 1500, as it was one of the few schools in the Sutherland Shire. There were sites at the corner of The Kingsway and Kiora Roads (boys), and an infants site and girls school sites on the corners of the Kingsway and Sylva Avenue.
Westfields, Miranda covers the site of the "old" school, which closed in 1965.
The school is centrally located in Miranda on the western side of Westfields Miranda in Sylva Avenue, alongside the Miranda Public Library and the council pre-school and day care.
Miranda Public School aims to provide a happy and stimulating environment and educational experience which will facilitate the growth of our students towards full potential in the moral, social, academic, physical, emotional and cultural areas. The school has a strong emphasis on diagnosing student's learning problems and extending student's talents.
Miranda PS has a well established K-6 weekly gymnastics programs, Peer Support, Leadership opportunities for all students, computer room and Internet access to classrooms, strong literacy and numeracy programs including Reading Recovery and 'Count Me In Too'.
