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.

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.

WEAR RED FOR DANIEL DAY
We all know the story of Daniel Morcombe and while we can never understand the pain that his family must live with, we can embrace their courage and remember the life of Daniel as we all take a moment to focus on ways to keep our children safe. On Friday 31st October we are asking all children, parents and community members to wear red, but more than just wear red. Take a moment to talk with your child or children about what to do if they are in a situation where they may be fearful. Develop strategies of what to say, where to go. Take some time to visit the web-site: www.DanielMorcombe.com.au and explore their resources.
