St Augustine Primary School
St Augustine Primary School is a Catholic Kindergarten to Year Six co-educational primary school with an enrolment of 220 students. The school was established in 1952 by the Sisters of Mercy and from 1956 the Presentation Sisters continued the operations of the school until 2003. At St Augustine’s we believe that learning is a life-long process for children, staff and parents.
St Augustine’s welcomes students into a caring and stimulating environment where educators give witness to Catholic beliefs, values and attitudes. Our actions and teaching nurture students to apply Gospel teachings and values in all they do. In partnership with parents, our school contributes to the development of students’ sense of self-worth, enthusiasm for learning and optimism for the future.
Building upon the foundations laid in the early years, we prepare our students to be active and informed citizens in an ever-changing world. We believe they are adaptive and exploratory learners who can apply their learning and understanding in different contexts and in a variety of different ways. We believe that all students can be curious, creative, critical, reflective, and independent thinkers. Education environments are collaborative, technologically rich, and student-centred, aiming to inspire a joy and passion for lifelong learning.
Specialist learning includes an outstanding Italian program, excellent Arts program (dance, drama, visual arts and music), and a strong Physical Education program.
Recent refurbishment of play areas has been greatly appreciated by the community.
The community prides itself on maintaining strong links between the parish, a very supportive parent body, an active School Board and Parents and Friends’ Association.
