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
Catholic schools across the state are enjoying Catholic Education Week. This is the one week of the school year when as a community we focus on the excellent contributions made by all who make a success of Catholic Education. From CES to all care givers and parents; from our teachers, school officers, Fr Karel, groundsmen and volunteers - all who play a significant role in ensuring that a supportive school community exists to deliver a happy and safe environment where every student receives a quality education.
Catholic Education Week is the time we ask what is it that we celebrate? The answer is "everything". Look at the development your child has made this year. Don't fall into making comparisons with other students, other year groups, or other schools. To do this betrays the truth that each child's education is a personal journey. As I look around I see proof every day that each child is making progress and this is the true indicator of success.
To complete Catholic Education Week students will do a secret, random kind thing for another student at school on Friday 31st July.
NATIONAL EVANGELISATION TEAM
St Augustine's was fortunate enough today to have the NET team visit. This is a group of young students who have volunteered their gap year to spread the Christian message.
