Welcome to St Clare's School, Tully
Saint Clare's is a vibrant community of 150 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 Priest, Fr Hilary Flynn.
Thank you for taking the time to tour our website and I invite you to contact the school should you have any questions.

2019 CAPTAIN NOMINATIONS

Following speeches, students in appropriate year levels will be able to vote.
BISHOP’S HOLIDAY - 19TH NOVEMBER
School will be closed on Monday November 19th for all students and staff. This is the holiday given by Bishop James Foley for our 90th anniversary. There were no objections to the proposed date so it is now officially a designated holiday for our school.
Next Friday at assembly (week 7), the Year 1 class and the Year 6 Stewardship Team will launch the St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Hampers for 2018. St Clare’s have taken up this important initiative alongside the St. Vincent de Paul Society, Tully Conference to help families who are suffering hardship in this coming Christmas season.
Each class will be presented with a box, kindly decorated by the Stewardship Team. Each student is asked to bring along a gift of non-perishable goods and place it in the box. At our whole school Mass on Friday, 7th December we will present the hampers to a representative from the St. Vincent de Paul Society who will arrange to distribute them. This is a wonderful opportunity for St Clare’s school community to show our support as part of our local community and help vulnerable families celebrate the festive season.
Ideas are listed per year level in our latest newsletter. Children may bring these items to their classroom and place them in their hamper, or the office hamper any time before Thursday, 6th December. We cannot thank our St Clare’s families enough for your very generous support of all fundraising events held throughout 2018.
Enrolments for next year are still open so if you have a child eligible for Prep (born between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014) or you have family or friends who are looking for a high quality education in a Catholic School, then please encourage them to contact the school, check out our website or come and visit to enrol their child.
