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.

ST CLARE'S PREPARES TO CELEBRATE!
Our 90th celebrations over the three days commencing last Friday were a wonderful testament of community. Our school community, parish and the local area all came together to support and celebrate.
The church was filled to capacity on Friday morning for our mass. We were blessed to have so many special guests join us at our mass and our students displayed the St. Clare’s Way in their reverence and participation. The staff and myself were so proud of all of them. Our morning tea catered by students from Tully State High School was of a high quality and enjoyed by all. Thank you to the St Gerard Majella Committee for their sponsorship of our morning tea.
After a big morning of celebrations and school tours our students all enjoyed a visiting performance in the afternoon about the wonders of Science and loved the cool experiments they shared. Our function at the Tully Country Club on Friday night was well attended by about 200 people and the atmosphere there was buzzing with the excitement of seeing friends from long ago and catching up with family members who travelled from afar. Thank you to our organising committee for a wonderful night (Jenny, Millie, Gina and Alicia).
We were all taken through a walk down memory lane during the roll call as Jane shared key school achievements and world events. Our 1930’s students proudly stood before us once again for their roll call. It was great to see so many attend the roll call, both students and past staff. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who supported our 90th celebrations!!!!!!!!!!!

On Tuesday, 16th October we will be participating in NAIDOC celebrations with a whole school NAIDOC Mass at 9am with Fr. Robert and Deacon Ralph from Mareeba visiting to preside over the Mass. They will both later accompany Fr. Hilary on classroom visits.
