School Mission Statement
The history of St. Augustine's School dates back to 1911. The original school was both an elementary and secondary school operated by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate and the Sisters of St. Ann. It is currently an elementary school offering instruction from Kindergarten through Grade 7. As a forerunner of education in the Catholic Archdiocese of Vancouver, we take pride in our history and tradition of service in education. Building on this solid Christ-centred foundation, we aim to bring God into the lives of students, through prayer, liturgy, and example. We offer a program that challenges our students academically, spiritually and culturally. Being open to the Spirit, we look forward with hope and joy to the future in our continuing roles as Catholic educators.
Statement of Philosophy
In co-operation with the parents and parish community, we at St. Augustine's School strive to provide:
the faith experience of a Catholic community;
an environment for developing in our students responsible citizenship through self-discipline;
a positive self-concept;
sensitivity and respect towards others;
the opportunity to achieve academic excellence.
Thus, we motivate our students for lifelong growth, according to Catholic ideals.
