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.

BOOK WEEK 22nd TO 26th AUGUST - AUSTRALIA STORY COUNTRY
This week is Book Week and there will be a themed parade on Wednesday. To start the event we had Farm Day yesterday with the Years 4, 5 and 6 involved. The best behaved on the day was George the horse kindly chaperoned by Mr. Chris O’Kane. Many thanks to Mrs. Wall, volunteer parents and Year 6 for the day as it was greatly enjoyed. The “recognise the animal poo” was success with the mystery one being pigeon poo. Check out the great pics of Farm Day below. There are more in this week's newsletter.....
Over the course of the next month or so information relating to uniform changes will start to be sent out. Please keep reading the newsletter for any updates. We would like to acknowledge the hard work of both Jenny Crema and Cherie Jenkins in this process. Thank-you Jenny and Cherie.
Please be aware that our school uniform regulation of Black lace-up/Velcro/sandal shoes, black joggers, (these are to be fully black) or brown sandals is still our
requirement for the formal uniform. This does not include black shoes with white stripes or coloured panels, it is a fully black shoe. Please also be reminded that the school socks for the sports uniform are plain white ankle socks that cover the ankle, not Peninsula/labelled or anklet socks.
FETE STALL ROSTER : Thank you to parents who have placed their name to help for the fete. There are still a few stalls that require helpers. Please consider some of your time to help……this will be greatly appreciated.
CAKE STALL : Each year we ask if the families could do a little baking to donate to the Cake Stall the night of the fete. Yes, we have been busy baking the past term in the tuckshop making Peach Blossoms, White & Chocolate Lamingtons and Clam Cakes but this is only part of what the stall sells. If you are able to bake a cake, slice or even biscuits we would greatly appreciate it, all food can be dropped off to the tuckshop, Friday the day before the fete or the morning of the fete between 8 am & 12pm for it to be priced, we have trays and plastic containers available if you would like any to tray up your food please let me know, if you prefer to price you own goodies that is also totally fine.
We have had such a great response to the cupcake orders if you would like any for delivery the night of the fete please let us know and we can keep your’s aside, $ 8 for 4 cupcakes – Vanilla, Nutella and Chocolate will be available.
Lastly next Tuesday and Thursday we are going to be in the Tuckshop making a few quick and easy slices for the stall during school hours, if you are able to come in and lend a hand please can you let me know. Thanks Marie 0418 158 872
