Welcome to St Augustine's Primary School
Whether you are an existing parent or an interested onlooker, I hope you find our website is informative and reflective of our school. St Augustine's is a Catholic co-educational Primary School within the Diocese of Ballarat, located in the historical town of Creswick. The school caters for 124 students from Foundation to Year 6. The school has a proud history of service to the Creswick district dating back over 165 years.
Learning in the context of a Catholic environment is the central purpose of our school. Our school is an integral part of the St Augustine's Parish, and we work very closely with our Parish Priest, Father Justin Driscoll.
Our mission is to ensure a truly Catholic learning community where the integration of faith and life is central to the culture and identity of the school. Our commitment is to engage students in lifelong learning to develop skills of communication, independence and collaborative learning and problem-solving. Regular communication between school and home and shared decision-making in your child's education is valued and encouraged.
At St Augustine's you will find a school community with dedicated staff, interested and involved parents, students who are proud of who they are and what they do. I am proud of the unique educational environment we offer at St Augustine's and our approach with each family is central to our mission. I invite you to come and visit the school and experience for yourself the warmth of our community.
We welcome all students and their families who share or respect our Catholic faith, values and traditions. Catholic education is supported by State and Federal funding, with families contributing the balance of the cost of educating their children. At times, some families are unable to meet their commitment to the full costs of education. As a Catholic school system, we ensure fee relief mechanisms are available to support families in time of need. We encourage these discussions on enrolment or as these needs emerge.
Please feel free to investigate our website further to learn about our school. If you require more information or clarification, do not hesitate to contact us.
