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. Greg Hoare - Principal

Recently a letter was sent out seeking feedback on whether or not a
uniform committee should be formed to investigate the possibility of
making changes to the school uniform. There were 47 responses. 21
families voted in favour of forming a uniform committee and 26 were
against a uniform committee being formed. From the results of this
survey it has been the decision of the school board to adopt the draft
policy which was sent out earlier in the term. The uniform requirements
will therefore remain as is.
At the last School Board meeting the board recently reviewed the “School Community Grievances” Policy. A copy of this policy is
included at the end of this week's newsletter for your perusal. We would appreciate if you
could acknowledge receipt of this policy and provide any feedback.
