St Augustine


 Welcome to our class page!

St. Augustine class is taught by Mr Moran and the teaching assistant is Mrs Keast.

We are a Year 4 class named after St. Augustine of Hippo, who was a great writer and teacher in the early church.

His life is an example to us that, even when we make mistakes, we can still live good lives, in the service of others.
