Parish of Our Lady & St. Walstan
St. Augustine's School has very close links with the
Parish of Our Lady and St. Walstan, Old Costessey.
Just a short walk from the school, on feast days and special celebrations the children visit the church for worship and the parishioners attend mass in the school hall every other week during term time.
The school and parish hold joint events during the year and many of the parishioners have or had children or grandchildren at the school or attended the school themselves.
Father David Ward is the school's Chaplain and regularly visits the school.
Rev. Bill Dimelow supports him in his role and is also an associate school Governor.
