About St. Augustine's Elementary School


St. Augustine's Elementary School, opened in the early 1980's under the jurisdiction of the former Avalon Consolidated School Board. It was built to replace the previous St. Augustine's school which was destroyed by fire a few years before. When it opened it was one of two elementary schools on Bell Island, the other being Immaculate Conception School under the jurisdiction of the Roman Catholic School Board.

As a result of provincial school reform in the late 1990's the school system on Bell Island was restructured. St. Boniface closed and St. Michael's became the only high school serving students in grades 9 - Level III. St. Augustine's became a K- 3 school and Immaculate Conception School went from a K-6 school to a grades 4 - 8 school.

In 2004, Immaculate Conception school was closed and St. Michael's once again became a grade 7 - Level III school with St. Augustine's serving the Kindergarten to Grade Six population.

Currently, we have a population of just under 200 students. We offer the standard provincial curriculum and a variety of extra curricular activities.
