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.

Latest News & Events
With the count down to the end of the year well on the way it is
time to reflect on some of our special events coming up over the
next 3 weeks. This Friday we will hold our swimming carnival. On
Thursday next week, November 28th, we will be voting for our
2015 school leaders. The year 5 students will present their
speeches prior to voting taking place. In the final week we have
our year 6/7 graduation night on Monday December 1st followed
by the school break-up on Wednesday December 3rd. School will
conclude on Friday December 5th following our end of year
VOLUNTEERS MORNING TEA
On Wednesday November 26th at 11am we will be having a
volunteers morning tea for parents. This will be held in the library
and will be an opportunity for the school to say thank you to the
many parents who have helped the teachers throughout the year.
This help may have been in many different ways including help
with reading groups, help in the library, help with Masses and
liturgies, help with camps and excursions or help with sporting
activities such as swimming or athletics.
As previously mentioned Nicholas and Sophie, our school
captains, are inviting families to prepare gift boxes to be donated
to children who are in hospital over the Christmas period. If
anyone would like to support this worthy cause please collect the
empty boxes from the school office. The idea is to fill the boxes
with various gift items. Boxes need to be returned to the school
office by November 24th.
End of Year BBQ
Wednesday 3rd December is our End of Year BBQ & Concert. A BBQ dinner will be available on
the night. The P&F are looking for volunteers to help cook on the BBQ and serve in the
kitchen. Please indicate below for catering purposes how many family members will be
attending, and if you can help with the BBQ and return the tear off slip ASAP that is located in this week's newsletter.
Swimming Carnival Tuckshop
The swimming carnival is next Friday! We would greatly appreciate donations
of home baked cakes and slices for the tuckshop. Volunteers are also
needed to help run the tuckshop on the day.
