Welcome to St Augustine’s College.
Our College has a proud tradition of providing Catholic education to students from the Kyabram district and beyond. At our college the sense of community and partnership with families is key to the learning success and wellbeing of our students. As a college we embrace our Catholic identity and witness this daily in words, symbols and actions. We invite students, staff and families to enter more deeply into the mystery of our faith to continue to discover the treasure that it holds for each of us.
We offer a student centred education from Foundation to Year 12 inspired by our faith tradition. We believe our students are competent and capable learners. Our students experience a diverse range of learning opportunities designed to engage their passions and interests whilst broadening their horizons and opening their hearts and minds to future possibilities. We know we live in times of exponential change. As some of our students will live to see the 22nd century we recognise the importance of treasuring what is good and true whilst embracing and navigating the positives of our changing world. We have a strong track record of ensuring our graduates leave us with purposeful pathways beyond their schooling.
Our staff are a community of colleagues who embrace learning and a sense of co responsibility for the flourishing of all students. We celebrate with joy and gratitude all that is good and work daily to build a community of trust, respect, loyalty, kindness and forgiveness with open and honest dialogue.
We value partnerships with parents and the wider community. Respectful engagement of parents, meaningful opportunities for dialogue and acknowledgement of their role as educators of their son or daughters is integral to the success of our students. Our connection to our local community situates us as a vital contributor to the ongoing development of our town and outlying region. By ensuring we educate students who can in turn give back to the community creates hope for the ongoing sustainability of rural towns like ours.
This year we celebrate as a community the 140th anniversary of our parish. Our College theme 'Ever Ancient Ever New - Story Youth Ideas' takes the writings of St Augustine and places it in the context of our contemporary Church celebrating the Year of Youth. This theme provides both hope and challenge to us as we work to animate our college vision, values and annual action plan to make our College the best it can be for all.
Our College is a dynamic, hope filled optimistic and vibrant learning community. We have much to celebrate and be grateful for and we invite you to explore this website to learn more about our story.
