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.

Welcome back to the final term for 2015. Like all terms it will be a busy one. Reports, Swimming Program, Yr 6 Graduation, Christmas Concert etc etc and in the meanwhile nine weeks of schooling.
On Monday 19th October – Week 3, staff will be required to attend a Diocesan curriculum day where teachers across all Catholic schools come together at various venues to compare work samples and teacher judgments. This opportunity is to facilitate fairness of assessments and grades for all students and to provide valuable professional development for teaching staff. Students are not to attend to school as there will be no classes or supervision available for students on this day.
WORLD TEACHER'S DAY 2015
World Teachers' Day is held internationally on 5th October. As the day usually falls during school holidays, Queensland celebrates on the last Friday of October each year.
The day is a wonderful opportunity to draw public attention to the important role of teachers in our local communities. This year, we will celebrate World Teacher's Day in Queensland on Friday 30th
October. I will have more to say on this day later in the month.
