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.

As we conclude the first half of this year it is time to reflect on what we have achieved to date in 2017. Apart from the wonderful teaching and learning that has occurred in all classes, we have also had our school Cross Country, District Cross Country and Athletics Carnivals as well as many team sporting opportunities; we commenced our after school STEM club which will continue next term; we had students attend leadership conferences and readers’ cup in Cairns; Yr 4 & 6 had their
camps; students in Yrs 3 & 5 did NAPLAN; we had parent teacher interviews; U8’s day and Read to Me Day.
We can be justifiably proud of what St. Clare’s offers all children– there is something for everyone here!
Congratulations to the children who received the Holy Spirit in Confirmation last Wednesday evening. It was a beautiful celebration and children were excited to be able to celebrate this Initial Sacrament along with their family and friends. Thanks to Mrs Gilbert and Fr Hilary for their leadership and for all those involved in the ministries to make the celebrations so special and memorable. We were blessed to have Fr Kerry Crowley join us on Wednesday evening and lead us through the liturgy.
Last week we hosted our two athletics carnivals on Wednesday and Friday. All children strived for their personal best - Congratulations!! Thanks to our HPE teacher, Mrs Jenkins and all staff for their organisation and management of the events. We also appreciate the support of the spectators and parents who assisted with the tuckshop on Friday. Further information from Mrs Jenkins can be found in the sports news section of the newsletter.
Year 6 will be presenting their annual play this term on Wednesday June 21 at 2 pm in the hall and would like to invite the staff and students of St Clare's to come along to enjoy the entertainment. Christmas: Why Do We Do That? will probably run for about 30 minutes. If classes could come straight to the hall after 2nd break it would be much appreciated. See you all there!
