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
Children learn through play, it is their work and their world. This week we have begun to welcome our new Prep students into our Catholic learning community. On Tuesday and Thursday morning we had very excited (and slightly nervous) parents who bought their children to the Come, Play and Stay Prep mornings. The children had a wonderful time engaging with their new learning environment.
Next Wednesday night we are having the Prep Parent Information evening from 6.30—7.30. We invite any current Prep parents who are able to come along and welcome our new parents and share their experiences around when young children start at school. If you are able to come please contact the front office and let us know.
Finally this Friday night is our P & F Disco—our P & F have been working very hard to get ready for the night and I keep hearing whispers about people’s costumes for the evening. We are looking forward to a great family evening. Just a reminder that children are to be accompanied by families—NO CHILD IS ALLOWED TO ATTEND THE DISCO ON THEIR OWN.
