St. Augustine

Our Patron

St. Augustine

Our patron, Saint Augustine of Canterbury, was sent from Rome by Pope Gregory in the 6th Century to convert the Angles in Southern England to Christianity.

Augustine sailed to our land with his companions and, upon seeing the fair haired, fair skinned people is said to have remarked “Angels not Angles”.

We are proud to have Saint Augustine as our patron, and we celebrate his feast on the 27th of May.

Our school badge is a picture of a boat on water which symbolises Saint Augustine sailing to England on his mission to spread the word of God. This helps us to remember that we are God’s children and we all have a mission in life.

Hand in hand we Listen to God’s Call, we learn from God’s word and we share God’s love through service
