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.

2014 SCHOOL FETE
With term one now over, it is time to start thinking about our school fete.
This year’s theme is Country Hoedown.
The school fete is our main fundraiser for the year, and this is my first year coordinating
one . This year I would like to see everyone get involved in some way and next term
I will be seeking parents interested in forming a fete committee to see this happen.
I’m also open to new ideas and suggestions for this fete and happy to have some of the
old ones back!
