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.

Well Book Shop orders have been sent away and the books should arrive at school within the next two weeks. Then the library can order our share of books from the money we have earned. So thank you to everyone who ordered books.
In Information Literacy for the next two weeks the students will be using photos or drawings of their Dad. They will use QR codes that link to videos of them speaking about their Dad. Well that's our plan anyway.
YEAR 6/7 CAMP
For school camp our year 6/7 classes went to Camp Patterson. We did some amazing activities like archery, orienteering, raft building, canoeing and many more fun activities! We learnt how to work as a team, how to co-operate with people that we don't usually hang out with. The food at Camp Patterson was spectacular, we had tacos, beef curry with rice, hotdogs, spaghetti and many more treats like refreshing fruits for afternoon and morning tea. The highlights of the trip were being able to do things that we don't normally do in everyday life like night spotting, raft building and other cool experiences. What a trip! Thanks to Miss Newell, Mr Mullane, Miss Ruth, Mrs Caltabiano, Miss Richelle, and Mr Varney for going with us!
St Augustine's Annual Golf Day
On Sunday 17th August, 71 eager participants played 18 holes of golf to help raise money in our annual St Augustine's Golf day. We were absolutely blessed with the weather and all the support of the many players and non-players on the day.
I would personally like to thank the businesses that are listed in this week's newsletter for their very
I would also like to thank from the bottom of my heart the following volunteers, who without their help, the day could simply not have run:
Elissa, Natalie, Nadine, Liz, Jacquie, Gayle, Bec, Lou, Janette and Lisa at the Golf Club and also Yvette who backed up straight after working night shift at the Hospital.
Top effort ladies!!
Through the efforts of these volunteers, businesses and players, we have managed to raise much needed funds for our school.
