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.

Yesterday we successfully concluded our athletics events during our full-day Athletics' Carnival. A huge thanks to all of our staff and parents for their work throughout the day to ensure smooth running and completion for presentations! I personally felt very proud of our school spirit displayed yesterday through the sportsmanship shown by our students and the assistance given by our fantastic families. We really appreciate your involvement in our carnival days as it results in an enjoyable atmosphere for all! We thank Marie Vipiana and all who contributed to the tuckshop as well as parents who helped out with the pack-up. We really do have wonderful role-models for our children! Our 5-7 year children enjoyed their 'Mini-Olympic' events, while the 8-12 year children participated in their field events and enjoyed some volley-ball during their bye. The competition on the field was so close that there was only a 3 point difference between Cooby and Woomera. Cooby won the day with a score of 418 points. All children gave their events their best shot and I noted many personal achievements and new accomplishments throughout the day. We thank the Langdon family of the Mt Tyson Hotel for their generous sponsorship of the Age-Champion trophies. Please click here to see more information in the current newsletter.
