Why choose our school?

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School Randwick is a welcoming community of highly skilled teachers dedicated to providing a comprehensive education for every child.  We care deeply about the wellbeing of each student and cater to their needs and interests through outreach and broad co-curricular opportunities. 

We set high standards for students and they respond by living out our values – placing them on a pathway to strong secondary school options. In concert with parents and parish, we equip our children with the skills, confidence and leadership they need for a successful future.

Principal’s Message

Welcome to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School (OLSH) website. We are a co-educational Catholic systemic school with a current enrolment of 470 students. Our steady student population growth has seen us grow from a two stream school to an emerging three streams from Kindergarten to Year 4.

OLSH is committed to being a Catholic learning community that focuses on the principles of lifelong learning. As a Newman Selective Gifted Education Program school, students and their learning are at the heart of our teaching and we celebrate the diversity of all learners. Together, in partnership with parents, teachers and staff, we are dedicated to a culture of continuous growth while maintaining contemporary learning practices, including high impact teaching strategies. 

OLSH enjoys a very positive partnership with Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church Randwick and with our parish priests. The spiritual aspect of the liturgical and special celebrations ensures a positive and supportive school culture among staff, students, parents and parish. 

OLSH is an engaging learning environment and a vibrant ‘Collaborating Community’ that enjoys strong links with many local businesses, organisations and schools, encompassing Platinum Pre-school, Brigidine College and Marcellin College. This has assisted students in their transition to Kindergarten and to our Catholic colleges.

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Randwick HistoryHistory
The school was established in 1881 by two parishioners of the Sacred Heart Parish and later by the Poor Clare Sisters and Loreto Sisters in 1882. Our strongest history and traditions date back to the Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Sisters who ran the school in 1898 and the Brigidine Sisters from 1902 – 1989. Major building construction and refurbishments throughout the years have created the vibrant, modern learning environment of our school today.

The OLSH and Brigidine charisms are celebrated and have a strong influence on our school identity. Our school motto, ‘Strength in matter and gentleness in manner’ is inspired by Mary and the spirituality of the heart of Jesus.
