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. Catholic Education Cairns

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.

Community News

On the last day of Term 2, Friday 29th June at 10am the Year 5 and 6 classes will be leading the Mass in honour of Fr. John’s 60 years ordained as a Catholic priest. We invite parents and friends to join in the celebrations which will be followed by a morning tea in the Heart of St Clare’s Garden.

Enrolments for next year are still open so if you have a child eligible for Prep (born between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014) or you have family or friends who are looking for a high quality education in a Catholic School, then please encourage them to contact the school, check out our website or come and visit to enrol their child.

A reminder that student reports will be available on-line, via the Parent Portal. Please ensure you can access the parent portal before the last week of term. If you need assistance please contact Chris Edwards through the school office or email cedwards@cns.catholic.edu.au If you need a hard copy of the report, then you are welcome to print them yourself from the portal. It is also strongly suggested you save the reports into your own files once accessed. They will be available on Thursday June 28th.

This Thursday we have four Yr 5/6 students travelling to Cairns to participate in the Interschool Readers’ Cup. They have been busy preparing by reading nominated books and will be quizzed on the day against teams from many other diocesan schools. Good luck Jarrod, Lacey, Ellie and Meg!

We extend a blessing on all the children with our school and Parish community who are preparing for their Confirmation on June 22nd. This important ritual confirms the formal faith journey that was begun at Baptism. Confirmation is the second Sacrament of Initiation, with Eucharist being the climax, when the children can participate in sharing the meal of our Lord at mass. This coming Sunday, sacramental candidates will take part in the Confirmation Preparation Day at St Clare’s. They will first be presented with a copy of the Creed at the 9am Mass. Parents are then required to sign in their child at the Good Samaritan Centre. Please check your Sacramental Programme  information sheets for further information or contact Tania Gilbert on 0438 173 795.

This year we prepare to celebrate our 90th anniversary. The 90th celebrations will take place on 14-15 September. The Friday will start with Mass at St Clare’s Church, followed by morning tea, school tours and activities for the students. Friday night will be a night of fun with a cocktail party. On the Saturday afternoon, the community will gather for a roll call, followed by student performances and the St Clare’s fete.

Preparations are underway, and we appeal to anyone who could loan memorabilia or photos, for return after the event, to please contact the school office.  Past students, parents and staff who wish to receive an invitation and event details in coming months, can contact Vera Borgna at St Clare’s on vborgna@cns.catholic.edu.au or 07 4068 1527.
