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.

Where has the term gone? It only seems like last week when I first walked into the school grounds and was struck by how beautiful it was. Now I know that not only does the school look beautiful but the staff, students and families who make up the Catholic Learning Community of St Augustine's are very special and beautiful as well.
We have had a jam packed term full of learning by both students and teachers. We have had lots of sport events, fund raising events arranged by the P&F, performances at school and the excitement of meeting our new Prep's for next year as well. I am looking forward to our dance performance tonight—what a way to conclude term 3.
A big thank you goes out to all those parents who selflessly volunteer their time to help with the learning that happens in our school as well as the work that goes into keeping our learning environment clean and healthy.
Next term is going to be full of new adventures and faces. We will have some new faces in the school and some old ones as we wel-come Bodies in Motion back to the Performing Arts area.
Have a happy and safe holiday and we will see you on Tuesday October 7th ready to begin again!
God Bless. Bec Maxwell
