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.

CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
As part of our Catholic Education Week celebrations we were fortunate enough to have the diocesan CEW Ambassador, Mr Lionel Williamson, visit our school yesterday.
He spoke to us all at assembly and then took the time to visit and talk with every class. Ask your children to tell you the story of the golden eagle and how he was 'encouraged' to learn how to fly by his mother and father. Mr Williams also took the time to plant our Catholic Education Week tree in our gardens with our oldest school leaders and our youngest school leaders.
Thank you Mr Williamson – we learned a lot from you.
YEAR 4 ASSEMBLY
The Year 4 children shared a special message with us at our assembly yesterday. Our friends at school, at home and in our community are very important to us and it is important that we go out of our way to look after them.
We need to show that we care by sharing, helping and celebrating with each other every day.
Thank you year 4 students and teachers.
St Augustine's Annual Golf Day, Sunday 17th August. This has been an amazing fundraiser for our school in the past. Lots of laughs and fun had by all. Start getting your team of 4 together. It's a 4 ball Ambrase, with the team taking turns in choosing the best shot. Lots of prizes and raffles on the day.
