Welcome to our website.....
St Augustine’s School, Mossman, shadowed by the magnificent Mt Demi, is situated 76 kilometres north of Cairns within a rural farming community on the edge of the naturally beautiful Daintree Rainforest and the lush green vegetation of Mossman Gorge. In addition, the popular beaches of the tourist town of Port Douglas are only 16 kilometres to its south.
St. Augustine's is a Catholic primary school catering for boys and girls from Prep to Year 7. St Augustine’s prides itself on being a Catholic Learning Community built on the traditions of the Sisters of Mercy who commenced the school in 1934. With a school enrolment of 190 students St Augustine’s is inspired by its founders and espouses its motto of Together in Faith – Learning for Life.
In creating a learning environment open to all students who seek to share in our values, we are witnessing to a faith, alive and purposeful, in a changing and challenging world.
We welcome you to our community of St Augustine’s School and we would be delighted to have you join us as we strive for excellence in educational practice and the valuing of the dignity and sacredness of each student, staff and parent.
I invite you to browse our website so that you can learn more about our great school of St Augustine’s.

SPORTS CARNIVAL NEWS & RESULTS
Congratulations to all students, teachers and parent/grandparent helpers and spectators. What a fantastic day for our St. Augustine’s Interhouse Athletics Carnival. Thank you also to God for being on our side with the weather with a perfectly sculpted overcast sky making it not “too hot”.
All children competed with much gusto and spirit to see another successful Athletics Carnival for 2015. Champion house went to Mercy. Team Spirit (for their organisation) went to Merinda and finally the very skilful and obedient marching by Mackillop seen them take out the marching trophy for 2015.
Although ALL students participated in events, special individuals achieved great things (even broke records) to be awarded Age champions. Please see this week's newsletter for Age Champions and Records.
Congratulations also to our Sportspersons of the day in Prep to Yr 3. You did our school proud.
Those athletes finishing 1st, 2nd and 3rd in track events and 1st or 2nd in field events will be eligible to compete in the Inter-school (District) Carnival on the 14th August (Term 3). Notes for these students will go home in Term 3.
