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.

P&F Barefoot Bowls,
Family Fun Night,
6pm Thursday 22nd March at
Mossman Bowls Club. All Families and Friends Welcome. Thursday evening is looking like a great social evening for the school community. I encourage as many children and parents to get along to share a meal, a few drinks and some barefoot bowls and games. There will be prizes and best of all the evening is a social event NOT a fundraiser. The games and prizes (for children and adults), are being organised and provided from previous P&F events, so please come along for a couple hours of fun and laughter.
BULLYING NO WAY
All classes in our school will undertake a variety of activities on Friday,16th March, that will involve raising awareness, identifying actions and types of bullying, identifying strategies to use if you experience bullying, what to do if you are a bystander and recognising if you have been a bully. It is always worthwhile having discussions with your children around these topics. Resources, definitions and further information can be accessed through the NDAA Website which has information for both parents and children-https://bullyingnoway.gov.au/NationalDay
Bullys love power. The more they get, the more they want. And so it makes sense then, if we are to combat bullying, to take a stand against it, it means taking back our own power (control) in a situation or relationship. As mentioned earlier this term Mindfulness is one way we can take back control. Being present in the moment, acknowledging our feelings, thoughts, behaviours in any one instance, can help us. Our Mindfulness Quote this week helps us regain our focus in this way- Don’t look back in anger or forward in fear, but around you because… Now is all that matters.
2019 Enrolments are now open for siblings and relatives of current students. I strongly encourage all who wish to have their child enrolled at St Augustine’s School in 2019 commence this process by completing an online enrolment form prior to the end of Term One. Enrolments will be open to the wider community early in Term 2.
P&F Meetings - 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.
