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.

ANZAC DAY - FRIDAY 25th APRIL
On Friday 25th April we take time to remember and celebrate the lives, efforts and work of both past, present and future Australians of our Armed Services.
Traditionally, our school has marched in the ANZAC Day Parade and we invite you to join us once again, to show our respect, loyalty and thanks. We will be meeting at 10am at the Port Village Shopping Centre, congregating in the area in front of the Coffee Club. We will then join the parade (10:30am) as a school group, marching down Macrossan Street to the Cenotaph for the formal proceedings where our School Captains will be laying a wreath on behalf of our school.
We do encourage all students to come (especially our Seniors)! The children are expected to be dressed in full school uniform (no sports uniforms please) and ensure that they wear their hats and bring a water bottle.
The P&F Easter raffle & sausage sizzle successfully raised just over $2,200.00. Ednalyn was the lucky winner of the Easter Basket.

Next P&F meeting will be held Thursday 1st May at 7pm, all welcome.
