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.
Thank you for taking the time to tour our website and I invite you to contact the school should you have any queries.

This week in the library we are celebrating Library &
Information Week. As part of the celebrations, students all
over Australia participate in National Simultaneous Story
Time. This is where everyone reads the same book, at the
same time, all over the country! The aim of this event is to
encourage more young people to read and enjoy books.
This year the nominated story is "The Brothers Quibble" by
Aaron Blabey, who is an accomplished Australian author. "The Brothers Quibble" is a beautiful story about how a little
boy's life changed when his parents brought home their new
baby boy…a familiar story for many families.
Classes across the school will be completing a variety of
activities to celebrate tomorrow. Preps are walking to the
town library to join with other Preps for story time, while Year
6 and Year 1 have planned some buddy reading time.
If you would like more information about National
Simultaneous Story Time, head to the ALIA website
