Welcome back to a new school year, St. Augustine students and families, and a special welcome to all our new families joining us for the first time! It is our honour to serve each and everyone of you!
I hope you all enjoyed a restful and fun-filled summer! The teachers, staff, and I can't wait to hear of all your summer adventures. We have all been busy over the last several weeks preparing the school and classrooms for your return.
I am excited to see all of you next week and to continue to get to know all of you and to serve you. I look forward to the upcoming academic year, knowing it will be filled with many successes by students, parents, and teachers and staff alike. Most importantly, we take on the upcoming year in communion as we continue to mould the minds and spirits of our children as a faith community.
This year’s theme for all Catholic Independent Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese is “What Do You Want Of Me, Lord?”
This year, let us celebrate and rejoice in what we are called to do as disciples of our faith by listening to Jesus and seeking out and living what He wants of us: to live our lives with love and bear witness in everything we do, wherever we find ourselves. He wants us to be holy — in our school, in our homes, in our communities, around the world, and in our lives.
Have a wonderful, faith-filled school year!
Our annual Walkathon was a big success! Thank you to all the parents that supported the event by walking with the classes, supervising check points, organizing and preparing treats, transporting goods and counting money. The money raised from this event will help us purchase some much needed equipment, improve playground space, garden space, new technologies, and equipment and resources for our library and athletics programs.

As has been tradition at St. Augustine School, our school community participated in its annual Terry Fox Run. Our Grade 4 class and Mrs. McFaul organized the run this year and lead an assembly during which Terry Fox’s life and achievements were presented. We were blessed this year to have artist Cliff Kearns, one of our school grandparents, with us at our assembly, where he presented the school with one of a limited number of prints of his portrait of Terry Fox, which was the only one endorsed by Terry himself before he passed away in 1981.
After the assembly, all our students from Kindergarten to Grade 7 walked, jogged or ran to honor the memory of one of Canada's greatest heroes and to raise awareness for cancer research and for the fight against cancer. Students were asked to bring a $2 donation, and all proceeds went to the Terry Fox Foundation.
