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.

This week is Wellbeing Week. It is a time to stop and take a breath and reflect on all that is good in our lives. Students (and parents) have the week off from written homework. Wellbeing of all students is a central focus of our Catholic Schools.
NAPLAN PRACTICE TEST
Leading up to NAPLAN each year students are always involved in practice tests. Due to our students doing testing ONLINE this year we will also be participating in an online practice test along with most other students state wide. This will occur on Thursday March 28th and will involve both the Yr 3 and Yr 5 classes. The schedule for testing in May will be communicated to parents early in Term Two.
