Securing the future of St Augustine's College is an exciting challenge, one in which we to continue to research and plan carefully as we align to our Master Plans going forward.

Our beautifully designed facilities are the result of the College's ambitious and clearly structured building program, planned to ensure that the College provides the best learning facilities for our students. We are grateful for the generosity of current and past parents who have financially supported previous building appeals.

As we embrace 21st century learning amongst sophisticated educational facilities, the College continues to invest in the renewal of our learning spaces, opening seven new Design and Technology classrooms in 2019 and our Goold Building redevelopment at the start of the 2020 school year.The building houses 21 general learning classrooms, specialist natural light filled Art studios, Music rooms, indoor outdoor Senior study areas, an amphitheatre, auditorium, open flexible library spaces panning over three levels and an outdoor barbeque terrace on the top floor.

Our future…in the planning stages….

Photos, architectural images and video below represent the Goold Building and our long term planning and building intentions.

Good Counsel Primary School

Our two level Good Counsel Primary School includes open collaborative learning spaces on each level, a large terrace, breakout rooms, interactive TV screens in each class, multiple plug in points with wall and floor mounted large TV screens, an open space for drama, storytelling, Primary assemblies and singing. Classrooms have windows and multi-purpose tables designed to be written on as whiteboards. There are designated wet areas, a large outdoor landing for larger assemblies, project based learning and STEAM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Mathematics) activities. The flexible learning spaces encourage collaboration, allowing teachers the opportunity to either teach explicitly or be facilitators in the learning process.

Design and Technology Workshops

Our recently opened first-class TAS workshops offer open plan multifunctional spaces for value added learning. Boys love working with their hands and the exciting new facilities including a central working hub, is always a hive of vibrant student activity. Two designated spaces for the Industrial Technology timber machinery students gives them a large modern learning space filled with natural light and is supported specialised teachers.  Design and Technology machinery includes 3D printers, laser printers and other speciality machinery offering the latest technology in their specified fields.

Senior Study Hall

This area is located on the top floor of the new Goold Building and is place for Senior Students to study under supervision.
Year 12 Students also have common room for dining, located on the top floor of the Clancy Building.

Canteen (The Hippodrome)

Our canteen opened in mid-2015, and is warmly referred to as ‘The Hippodrome’ as St Augustine was known as ‘Augustine of Hippo’.  Hippo is located on North African coast.

The Greek word Hippodrome represents an ancient Grecian stadium for horse and chariot racing and a place of community meeting. The name is derived from the Greek words hippos and dromos.

The Hippodrome houses a modern canteen with a cashless SaintsCard system, providing a more streamlined process for students and staff purchasing food items. Online ordering is also available. 

We provide an undercover queuing area, self-help microwave ovens, along with menu items shown on large TV screens.  Healthy hot and cold food items are displayed in easy to view cabinets. The hot chocolate espresso machine is also popular. The facility also includes a modern large kitchen with sophisticated cooking and refrigeration hardware as is supplies food for College events, staff,  parent and business meetings, as well student fundraising barbeques and other events

Uniform Shop

The Uniform Shop was relocated to the front of the College, next to reception in 2019. Our cashless SaintsCard system makes it easier for students and to purchase items on their a pre-paid card and parents to order some items online.


Monday - 8:00am to 12:00pm (Term 1 only)

Wednesday - 8:00am to 12:15pm and 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Friday - 8:00am to 12:00pm

Science Rooms

The Science laboratories and classrooms are situated in the two level Mendel Wing. Their design is open plan, creating an atmosphere to inspire a love of science.  The laboratories are designed to connect to classrooms through the option of large bi-fold doors between the two areas. This configuration allows teachers to move students between practical and theory lessons with comparative ease.

The laboratories are of the highest quality and safety standards, and include emergency stops for both gas and electricity, aerated water eye wash stations and safety showers.

The podium level of the building houses three classrooms, which open into three laboratories. It also has a seminar room, opening into one of the laboratories. The upper level has a similar configuration with three classrooms and two seminar rooms, one of which opens into the laboratories. All three laboratories are connected by large sliding glass doors which can be opened to provide a larger laboratory space. If there is a requirement for a practical test involving a whole Year Group, the sliding doors can be opened, allowing for all students to be accommodated in the one central area.

The rooms contain innovative table designs, creating exciting opportunities for teacher/student discussion and interaction, due their unique shape. They are particularly beneficial for student learning groups and offer enormous potential for initiating discussion, developing ideas and investigations. The open plan area allows teachers and students to easily rearrange furniture, minimising disruption and accommodates different task situations. Built-in whiteboard tabletops add an extra dimension for group work.

The use of the classrooms for theory lessons allows the availability of the laboratory space for easy setup of equipment and clearance of equipment between practical sessions.

Brimson Centre

The Brimson Centre is a two storey building including a multi purpose hall for assemblies, sports and school events, as well as Monica Chapel. The building also houses classrooms and the new TAS rooms on the ground floor.

The Brimson Centre is named after Fr David Brimson OSA, who was the first Rector of the College when the College opened in 1956.
