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. Catholic Education Cairns

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.
