First and foremost, we are an Augustinian Catholic College offering first class education, supported by highly qualified and enthusiastic staff.
In your time as a student at St Augustine's College there are opportunities to connect with our Augustinian schools, universities and churches around the world. In recent months we have sent students on Italian study tours, including staying in a 600 year old Augustinian Monastery in San Gimignano. Boys have also joined our Exchange Student Programme with Augustinian school St Rita's in Chicago, USA and Benedictine School Glenstal Abbey in Limerick, Ireland.
"I travelled to Ireland to stay at a boys College, Glenstal Abbey, Ireland when I was in Year 10. It's so exciting travelling to the other side of the world, making new friends, being welcomed into another Catholic community and going to school in a medieval castle. I now have mates that I will continue to keep in contact with and plan to revisit" said 2009 College Head Prefect , Jack Tier.
The College in return, also hosts exchange students from our Augustinian schools across the globe, initiating life long friendships with our boys.
In 2007 as part of our Social Justice Programme, 12 students and 6 staff travelled to our Augustinian Sisters of Consolation's TMMR Orphanage in the Philippines to build an infirmary. Again in 2009, 20 students and 7 staff travelled to the Philippines to support the Orphanage in building an additional cottage to help with the growing number of orphans. They also planto implement water tanks and raised vegetable gardens to aid the Orphanage in becoming more sustainable.
In the past 18 months, boys have trekked through the mountains and valleys of Nepal, bravely walked the jungles of the Kokoda Track, PNG, travelled to the South Island of New Zealand to play rugby against their Kiwi friends and attended the International Youth Music Festival in Beijing, China winning a silver medal for our Touring Band.
St Augustine's College is connected to hundreds of years of Augustinian tradition through our international community. There is a strong sense of belonging and connectedness to our vision of the future.
