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 6. 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.

Congratulations to all students in successfully completing the Swimming Program. Thanks to St Mary's Catholic College, Woree for making available their minibus to assist in shuttling the children between the school and the pool. On Friday the first week back, we will have a wonderful opportunity to come together and participate in the annual School Swimming Carnival. Each student has received a note outlining details for the day.
At the end of last week the school took control of a massive roll out of solar panel infrastructure that has improved the electrical carbon footprint and electrical efficiency of the school. This capital investment is approximately $150,000.00 and it is expected that financial savings in the short term will cover the cost of the school improvement and in the mid to long term the savings from electricity bills will be diverted to make purchases for student and teacher classroom resources in the class. This is another example that our school is continually being improved.
Our Preps recently cultivated and then planted vegetable and herb gardens as part of their Design Technologies Sustainable Garden Project.

I encourage all to spread the good news of what our school is all about. Let any family know that our enrolment process has commenced and that enrolment packages are available from the School Office.
