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.

LOUD FENCES MOVEMENT
On the 1st of June our school will be participating in the Loud Fences movement. The Loud Fences movement is an initiative that has been set up across Australia and has the support of Catholic Education Services and Bishop James Foley. On this day we will be encouraging our community to tie brightly-coloured ribbons on the front school fence, as a symbolic act of solidarity for all children who have been hurt in some way through violence, war, illness etc. Students are encouraged to bring along their own ribbon to school to tie to the front fence on or before June 1st. Please feel free to come and tie your own ribbon also, with spare ribbon available in the office.
Congratulations to Lachlan and Cohen for their

experience and both reported an improvement on previous
