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 Michael.Celebrating Catholic Education in Queensland

Thank you for taking the time to tour our website and I invite you to contact the school should you have any queries.

Latest News & Events

Our school Fete takes place this Saturday. Thank you to everyone who has helped so far. Lots more needs to be done so that the Fete can once again be a success. More helpers are still needed. It would be wonderful if we can get all of our school families involved in helping with the Fete in some way as the proceeds of the Fete go towards benefitting all students within the school.

There will be a working bee after school on Friday to help with the set up. The stall holders will then start to set their stalls up from 8am on Saturday and then a final clean-up will take place on Sunday morning from 8am. If anyone can help with these it is much appreciated.

The Fete commences at 5pm with the class items. This year there will also be a special presentation made during the Fete. This presentation will be a Parents and Friends Life Membership to a person who has helped the St Clare's community over many years. This will be the first Life Membership made by that association.

Last week 10 students from St Clare's participated in the Peninsula Track and Field Championships. They were: Hayley (discus), Flynn (Shot Put), Kate (100, 200 and 800 metres), Matthew (800 metres), Elissa (800 metres), Jasmine (Long jump, Discus and Shot Put), Ben (100, 200 and 800 metres), Melody (100 and 200 metres), Robert (Shot Put) and Stephanie (100 metres, 200 metres and Long Jump). Well done to all competitors on their efforts throughout the carnival. Special congratulations goes to Jasmine (3rd in Discus and 2nd in Shot Put) and Stephanie (1st in 100 metres, 200 metres and Long Jump). Both Stephanie and Jasmine now have the opportunity to go onto the next level of competition which is at the State Championships to be held later in the year.

Next term our Year 5 students will be participating in a trial online LOTE program. The program is conducted in a number of other schools in the Cairns area and their reports about the program have been positive. The language that will be taught is Chinese. If the trial proves to be successful we will look at offering LOTE to our upper grades next year.


The annual Flower Show will take place at the Showgrounds on Saturday 12th September. St Clare's students are invited to participate in the Junior section. In this section there are two age categories (1) Prep to Year 3 (2) Year 4 to 6. In each of these sections there will be a category for best decorated saucer and best floral arrangement. Entries need to be submitted between 1pm and 6pm on Friday 11th Sept.

Last Friday 18 girls from Years 5 & 6 represented our school at the Fowlers' Group Marlin Coast 12/U Netball Carnival at Martyn Park in Cairns. We were very proud of the netball that the girls played and the sportsmanship displayed throughout the day. Wins and losses were experienced and a fun day was had by all. A big thanks to Jenny Crema and Jane Berge from Tully Junior Netball for all their help in training and preparing the girls and to Gretta Berge and Alex Campagnolo who did an amazing job of umpiring throughout the whole carnival on our behalf. We also thank Mrs Papadimitriou, Mrs Dickinson, Mrs Gilbert, Mrs Luxford and Mr Jackson for providing transport and assisting with scoring and managing throughout the day.
