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

Welcome back! Hopefully the break has been relaxing and enjoyable.

This term will be very busy with many events scheduled. A calendar has been attached with this week's newsletter. A few highlights include the swimming program which commences in Week 2 culminating in the swimming carnival on Friday 27th November, the student free day on Monday 19th October and the end of year break up functions including the Year 6 Farewell Liturgy and function on Monday 30th November and the School Break-up night on Wednesday 2nd December. Student reports will also be sent home on Monday 30th November.

Tomorrow we will begin a Transition program for our 2016 Prep Class. The group will attend school each Wednesday between 9am and 11am. Thank you to Mrs Brumley who will be working with these children throughout the term.

Each year parents, staff and students from Years 5 and up are asked to participate in surveys as part of Federal Government compliance. The results of these surveys are then placed on the "Catholic Education Services - School Website".

The hyperlink for the survey has bas been open since the end of last term and will remain open until the end of this week. This will hopefully give more parents an opportunity to contribute to the survey. At this stage we have only had 2 responses.

The hyperlink address to complete the parent survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TullyParent2015

As mentioned previously I encourage as many parents as possible to complete the survey as this will assist in ensuring that the information is a true reflection of the opinions of the parent body within our school community. I thank you for taking the time to complete the survey.

Should anyone wish to receive a hard copy version of the survey please contact the office so that one can be made available to you. The information from the hardcopies will then be placed on the above link by a staff member from Catholic Education Services.

Surveys will remain open until Friday 9th October.

Our school board met at the end of last term. At this meeting the following policies were reviewed:
~ The Enrolment Policy
~ The Fundraising Policy

A copy of a draft version of these policies is included in this newsletter for your perusal. We would appreciate it if you could acknowledge receipt of these policies and provide any feedback on them. This can be done by clicking:
http://goo.gl/forms/F4rwzGyXrY for the Enrolment Policy

http://goo.gl/forms/waVFHrGDCY for the Fundraising Policy

or completing the hardcopy response forms attached to the draft policies. Feedback either online or via the hardcopies will need to be completed by Tuesday 13th October.

At the end of last term the Year 6 students were away on camp. They went to Charters Towers, Hughenden, Winton and Longreach. The students got to see first hand the Australian outback and what it has to offer. I would like to congratulate the students on their behaviour throughout the week. I did get lots of positive feedback along the way on how the students conducted themselves. Well done! Thank you to Mrs Gaskell for giving up her time and to the parents Jenny Crema, Chris Camilleri, Susan Burton and Gerry Raiti for their assistance and support throughout the week. It was very much appreciated.

Year 6 Camp

Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school library commencing 26th October to 30th October.

Year Six students received uniform notes today as they were on camp when they were handed out to the rest of the school before the holidays. It is very important that all surveys are returned to school by this Friday, 9th Oct. This marks the beginning of the decision making process, so please ensure your forms are returned.

Over the last week I have been interviewing the next intake of Prep Students. As mentioned to the parents at the interviews the students will be invited to attend a Prep Transition program next term. The program will run on Wednesdays throughout the term commencing on Wednesday 7th October. The program will run between 9am and 11am.
