About Us


St Augustine's Primary School Rivervale, founded in 1952, offers a quality Catholic education for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our single-stream school is in the inner-city suburb of Rivervale, 5km from Perth CBD. 


Founded in the tradition of the Presentation Sisters, we offer a welcoming Catholic school community committed to fostering total faith-life development. Our learning approach is to focus on the whole child. Students are nurtured and encouraged to reach their full potential in an environment fostering respect, responsibility, tolerance and self-worth. We believe that learning is a life-long process for children, staff and parents.


The St Augustine's Primary School emblem features the Black Swan, indigenous to Western Australia, backed by reeds and river that are symbolic of the Rivervale area. The star and cross symbolize Christ as our identity and guide. The shield represents our faith in God, protector of our lives and country. 

Our school motto, ‘For and God and Country’ charges those within our community with service for God and to others. As a Catholic community, we strive to ensure that Jesus is the model on which our relationships and interactions with others are based. We see every individual as unique and created in the image and likeness of God. Our school community works to provide students with a love of God and spiritual guidance.
