Welcome to St Clare's 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 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 queries.

CYBER SAFETY WORKSHOPS
Last week, the Year 3 – 6 classes participated in 90minute workshops on Cyber Safety, Mrs Susan McLean. Susan is Australia's foremost expert in the area of cyber safety and young people and was a member of Victoria Police for 27 years. Widely known as the 'cyber cop' she was the first Victoria Police Officer appointed to a position involving cyber safety and young people. Since 2003 she has been awarded many Victorian Police and National Medals for her work in the Police Service on this topic. It was very interesting to hear the discussions between our students and Susan, with many in all year levels, on a variety of social network sites. The main theme of the workshops was to educate children on staying safe while online. Susan is returning in June to do Parent Information Sessions at Good Counsel Primary. Thank-you Susan.
Tully District Cross Country Congratulations to all St. Clare's representatives at the Tully District Cross Country last Friday. The challenging Lacey's Creek track was wet and slippery, however our students rose to the challenge and, as always, displayed exemplary sportsmanship, persistence and resilience. We are so proud of each and every participant.
We are very grateful to the parents who provided transport for our students to the event! We also thank the TD Cross Country Convenor, Mr Chris Cattarossi.

P&F MEET AND GREET and STAR WARS DISCO
This Friday night is our Meet and Greet and disco organised by our Parents and Friends starting at 5.30pm and running through to 8.30pm. The disco is themed Star Wars and may the force be with you. I watched the new Star Wars movie last week and it was very much like one from the past with some different characters and some aged ones. The force took its toll.
