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.

Welcome back everyone. We hope you all had a joyous
Easter with family and friends. We are actually still in the

Over the course of the next few years, Australia will
continue to commemorate the Anzac Centenary, marking
100 years since our nation’s involvement in the First World
War; this year is the official 100th Anniversary of the
landing at Gallipoli. The Anzac Centenary is a milestone of
special significance to all Australians as we remember not
only the original Anzacs who served at Gallipoli, but
commemorate more than a century of service by Australian
servicemen and women.
This Friday the Year 3 class are hosting a very special
ANZAC Parade. To celebrate ANZAC Day we would
like to invite those students who have special family
medallions/uniforms from war service to wear them or
bring them along to school on this day. If your child/
children are willing to speak about the items on parade
that would be great also. Sharing your family history
in regards to something so important would be a great
honour for us all.
