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.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK
One of the things that I keep hearing from parents is that they love the community of St Augustine's School. It is this community that we saw on Friday night at the Fluro Disco. The work of the parents who are involved in the Parents and Friends is amazing and the Disco was a great night—what fun!! It was wonderful to see so many people turn up on a week end when there were a lot of other things hap-pening, the dancing was—let's say 'inspiring' and the costumes very 'interesting'.
A big thanks goes out to the parents and staff who volunteered for jobs on the night. It is through the work of these people that we are able to provide all those extra bits that make St Augustine's a special place. This is the community that I refer to—those people who value St Augustine's School and are prepared to come and support the school and show that they are proud to belong to our Catholic learning community.
DAY FOR DANIEL
Friday the 31st of October is the annual Day for Daniel. This is a day when we remember Daniel Morcombe and remind ourselves that we are all responsible for the safety of all children. As a school we will be asking all children, staff and parents to wear something red - but more importantly to have discussion with our children about how to keep themselves safe. It is vital that we build up our children's skills and help them develop the strategies, skills and attitudes that will keep them safe in all situations.
