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 6. 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.

PREP ORIENTATION MORNING
Wednesday morning this week was exciting for the Prep Classes of 2016. Children had their first taste of being in the classrooms with their new teachers. Miss Kennedy, Miss Scaroni, Mrs Brooks, together with school officers Mrs Perham and Ms Booth carefully nurtured the children into the experience of school. The buzz in the room was brilliant. There was an abundance of smiles from parents, teachers and students. This demonstrates that a strong spirit of partnership and community exists within our new cohort. The future is very bright for these 'newbies'.
The Christmas Raffle is quickly winding up. Please sell tickets and return ticket stubs and money as soon as possible. We will have a massive draw at the Christmas concert Tuesday 1st December. In a similar manner to raffles where one wins a trailer and everything that's in the trailer, this raffle is a "winner takes all". For $2 one of our community members is going to win big. I can't wait to see who wins.
HEADING INTO 2016
The school is in a very good place as it looks towards 2016. Identifying projects for value adding to our children's education is occurring. A school that rests on its current performance quickly goes backwards.
The staff is already ensuring that 2016 will continue the professional upward trajectory. We are all very excited and committed to what the new academic year will bring. More details in the next Newsletter.
A reminder that all children will return to school on Wednesday the 27th January.
ENROLMENTS FOR 2016
There are still places available across the school. Spread the great news about our school. We are a welcoming community and have a place for all who seek to share in our journey of learning. I refer you to the advert in this week’s Gazette – Page 7.
