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.

Our school Fete takes place this Saturday. Thank you to
everyone who has helped so far. Lots more needs to be
done so that the Fete can once again be a success. More
helpers are still needed. It would be wonderful if we can get
all of our school families involved in helping with the Fete in
some way as the proceeds of the Fete go towards
benefitting all students within the school.
There will be a working bee after school on Friday to help
with the set up. The stall holders will then start to set their
stalls up from 8am on Saturday and then a final clean-up
will take place on Sunday morning from 8am. If anyone can
help with these it is much appreciated.
The Fete commences at 5pm with the class items. This
year there will also be a special presentation made during
the Fete. This presentation will be a Parents and Friends
Life Membership to a person who has helped the St Clare's
community over many years. This will be the first Life
Membership made by that association.
Last week 10 students from St Clare's participated in the
Peninsula Track and Field Championships. They were:
Hayley (discus), Flynn (Shot Put), Kate (100, 200 and 800 metres), Matthew
(800 metres), Elissa (800 metres), Jasmine (Long jump, Discus and Shot Put), Ben
(100, 200 and 800 metres), Melody (100 and 200
metres), Robert (Shot Put) and Stephanie
(100 metres, 200 metres and Long Jump). Well done to all
competitors on their efforts throughout the carnival. Special
congratulations goes to Jasmine (3rd in Discus and
2nd in Shot Put) and Stephanie (1st in 100 metres,
200 metres and Long Jump). Both Stephanie and Jasmine
now have the opportunity to go onto the next level of
competition which is at the State Championships to be held
later in the year.
Next term our Year 5 students will be participating
in a trial online LOTE program. The program is
conducted in a number of other schools in the
Cairns area and their reports about the program
have been positive. The language that will be
taught is Chinese. If the trial proves to be
successful we will look at offering LOTE to our
upper grades next year.

FOWLERS' GROUP MARLIN COAST 12/U NETBALL CARNIVAL
Last Friday 18 girls from Years 5 & 6 represented our school at the Fowlers' Group Marlin Coast 12/U Netball Carnival at Martyn Park in Cairns. We were very proud of the netball that the girls played and the sportsmanship displayed throughout the day. Wins and losses were experienced and a fun day was had by all. A big thanks to Jenny Crema and Jane Berge from Tully Junior Netball for all their help in training and preparing the girls and to Gretta Berge and Alex Campagnolo who did an amazing job of umpiring throughout the whole carnival on our behalf. We also thank Mrs Papadimitriou, Mrs Dickinson, Mrs Gilbert, Mrs Luxford and Mr Jackson for providing transport and assisting with scoring and managing throughout the day.
