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.

COURAGE TO CARE
Last Friday, students met survivors of Nazi occupation and treatment during the Second World War. After hearing their stories and about those who were brave enough to help, students were challenged to find the courage to care when injustice and harassment occurs. This powerful opportunity is certain to have greater significance for our students as they grow, mature and encounter life’s experiences. I encourage parents to engage in a conversation with your child about this excursion. The facilitators of this event spoke very highly of our children and the respect they displayed on the day.
QUEENSLAND CHILD PROTECTION WEEK
There is much to say about Child Protection and it is best summed up by the slogan for 2015: “Protecting Children is Everybody’s Business”. I invite all to visit the following website as a means to reflect on this important social responsibility:
As a way to celebrate the culmination of Qld Child Protection Week, St Augustine’s is hosting a FREE movie night in the undercover area. Mossman Youth Centre has secured “PAPER PLANES” as the feature to be shown and it will be presented on a large outdoor screen with a premier sound system from Cairns.
The usual movie food and drinks, chips, popcorn, chocolate, slurpees etc will be available for purchase on the evening. So come along as a family and enjoy a free movie on the big screen.
