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 Karel Duivenvoorden.Celebrating Catholic Education in Queensland

Thank you for taking the time to tour our website and I invite you to contact the school should you have any queries.

Latest News & Events

If you have an android or apple device I urge you to download the St Clare’s Skoolbag app through the app store. Please ensure it is the St Clare’s Tully app, which has our emblem as its logo. This app comes in quite handy for push alerts and will be used in times of emergency such as flooding or impending cyclones. Please ensure you allow push alerts on your device once you have downloaded the app.

Next week on Wednesday 30th July between 9am and 11am we will be holding a Prep Open morning. The open morning will be an opportunity for prospective enrolments to the school to have a look at what St Clare's has to offer for their child. As well as showing families around the school both Paula Brumley and myself will talk to parents about the school and about Prep. If you know of any families who may be interested in attending please let them know.

Catholic Education Week will be celebrated across Queensland next week from 27 July - 2 August this year. This annual event is held to promote the special ethos of Catholic schools and to highlight the great things that take place in Catholic schools every day.

The theme for this year's celebrations is: Come, live life in all its fullness. This inspirational call is based on the Gospel of John (10:10), challenging those who answer it to "live fully".

Our school is planning a number of activities during the week to celebrate Catholic Education Week for a list of the activities please see this week's newsletter.

I would like to thank the local Banana Farmers and the Tully and District Show Society for their donation of $260 to the school. The donation has been given by the Banana Section at the 2013 Tully Show. Banana Farmers enter their Prize Winning Bunches and Cartons at the Show. The fruit is packed and sent to the markets to be sold. The money is then donated into the Community.

District Sports will take place next week. The 800 metre events will take place for 9 to 13 years on Wednesday
30th July while the other events will take place on Friday 1st August. This year students from 10 to 13 years will be eligible to nominate for Discus. District trials for Discus will take place on Tuesday July 29th after school from 3.45pm at Tully State School. Mr Coward will finalise the nominations after Wednesday's Sports day and a letter will then be sent home to students who are eligible to attend.
