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.

EASTER BAREFOOT BOWLS FAMILY NIGHT
A date claimer for all is the “Easter Barefoot Bowls Family Night” that will be held at the Mossman Bowls on Thursday 22nd March starting at 6pm. This was on the school calendar 2 years ago and was such a positive community evening we are repeating the event in 2018. This will coincide with the School Easter Raffle. This year we are asking each child to bring one item to place in the Easter Hamper for your year group. It may for example, be an Easter egg, or a chocolate bunny or a family block of chocolate. Draws will be made for each of the 7 year groups and then 3 overall draws. With 10 prizes in the Easter Raffle there are more prizes to be won in 2018. More details will be coming via Facebook / Parent Portal / Newsletters.
On Wednesday 21st February at 6pm in Meeting Room 1 at the Mossman Bowls Club the P&F will be holding a fundraising brainstorming session to discuss some great ideas we have for this year’s social and fundraising activities. Come along and join us. Learn about upcoming events, vote on fundraising ideas and give us your great suggestions too. Many hands make light work, so let’s make this year the best year ever.
If you have some great ideas, but are unable to attend. Please email us your suggestions or talk to one of our P&F executive members – we would love to hear them. Email: email@example.com
Like other Catholic schools across Australia, St. Augustine’s will be supporting a Catholic organisation called Caritas with an awareness program called Project Compassion starting on Ash Wednesday. A quote from Caritas itself: Caritas Australia’s annual Lenten fundraising and awareness-raising appeal, Project Compassion brings thousands of Australians together in solidarity with the world's poor to help end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity. We offer a different story to feature each week during Lent. Focused on the theme “A Just Future,” and featuring a new country each week, the stories explain the issues faced in each country. They also highlight how Caritas Australia is working together with vulnerable people, helping them to develop their strengths and create change in their own communities.
