Welcome to St Clare's Parish School, Tully
Saint Clare's is a vibrant community of over 200 students in Tully – Far North Queensland. Our school prides itself on the wonderful reputation that it enjoys in the local community and the dedicated and caring staff that work with us.
Saint Clare's school is experiencing exciting times at present. We have recently added a new technology room, administration block and built a roof over our basketball court. These new buildings have allowed us to cater for the growing needs of the community, and to allow us to provide greater service to our students and the community in general.
Saint Clare's provides an excellent education for its students. Staff pride themselves in catering for individuals and their diverse needs. We enjoy a very close link with the church, as classes celebrate Mass regularly and enjoy class visits from our Parish Administrator, Fr Karel Duivenvoorden.
Thank you for taking the time to tour our website and I invite you to contact the school should you have any queries.

CODE OF CONDUCT
Included in the latest newsletter is a copy of the Parents and Volunteers
Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct applies to all parents and
volunteers who interact with Catholic Schools in the Cairns Diocese or
are present at school or school sponsored meetings/ functions/ activities
within or outside school hours. The Code of Conduct is basically an
indication that all parents and volunteers have an expectation to support
the Vision and Mission of Catholic Education in the Diocese of Cairns.
There is already in place a code of conduct for staff who are employees
of Catholic Education which is fairly similar to the Parents and Volunteers
Code of Conduct. At a school level we also have in place a Code of
Conduct for our students through our Behaviour Management Program.
With this new Code of Conduct all members of our school community
can be clear of their expectations.
Our School now has our own Skoolbag iPhone and Android App to help us communicate more effectively with our Parent/Student community. We are asking parents to install our Skoolbag School App. To install it, just search for our school name "St Clare's School Tully" in either the Apple App Store, or Google Play Store.
Our next meeting will be held on Friday 14th March, in the
school meeting room (admin building) @ 9:30am. Looking forward to seeing you there!
I would like to encourage everyone to support the P&F
social evening this Friday from 6pm to 9:00. There will be
a BBQ as well as a disco for the children. The disco will
commence at about 6:30pm. It will take place in the Hall.
Screen Printing Sports Shirts
We will be screen printing sports shirts on Tuesday 11th of March. If you would like your shirt done please bring
along a plain royal blue or yellow t-shirt (without a pocket if possible) before then. We will screen print ‘Cooby’ or ‘Woomera’ on it, so that it can be worn on school sports days. It is important to wash new shirts before they are sent
in. Jenny & Theresa would love some help with this if anyone is available that day.
For all the latest news - please see this week's newsletter.
