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 Karel Duivenvoorden.
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'S AWARD WINNERS...
This term students across quite a few year levels have been
learning about the Religious Education strand, “Acting Justly”.
It delves into aspects of morality, examining conscience, acting
with empathy and human dignity...seemingly a difficult
concept for younger children to understand, or is it?
Last week my students were role-playing scripture passages
with the theme of ‘Acting Justly’. They then needed to reflect
on the passage in regards to their interpretation and I gave them
reflection questions, with the last questions being the toughest
to answer. ‘Can people be forgiven?’ ‘Why or why not?’ Without any hesitation, every single time, the answer was an
emphatic YES. And…as to ‘why?’ Well that question was
answered with even more ease (and with a look on their faces
like they were confused as to why I even had to ask). The
students’ reply every single time, was and I quote…‘because
that is what Jesus did, that is what Jesus taught us to do and
that is the right thing to do, even when it is hard.’ Beautiful!
