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.

WORLD READ ALOUD DAY
We will be celebrating World Read Aloud day on Wednesday 4th March during both lunchtimes when older students will be asked to come to the Library and read to a younger student. Parents are more than welcome!
What is it? World Read Aloud Day is an awareness day advocating for literacy as a right that belongs to all people, celebrated around the world annually on the first Wednesday in March. World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another.
By raising our voices together on this day, we show the world's children that we support their future: that they have the right to read, to write, and to share their words to change the world. Check back for details, and find further information at litworld.org.
Twenty-five years ago, married couple Eric and Ma worked hard, but their farm was unprofitable. They had a very limited income and diet, until they took a training course at the Tutu Rural Training Centre (supported by Caritas Australia). Using the skills they learnt there, the couple have built a suc-cessful family life, and a thriving farm that provides them with a healthy diet and sustainable source of income.
Your donation to Project Compassion helps people in isolated areas of Fiji gain the skills they need to grow food for life.

For our new families the undercover angels involves sweeping and hosing the ground and seats in the area where the children spend so much time in the week. It only takes an hour and can be done any time af-ter school on Friday or over the weekend. It's a great way to help out and you can pick the best time for you and your family.
To put your name down on the roster or to ask any questions call Elissa 0417 772277. Thank you for your continued support, your P&F.
