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.

FR JOHN'S 60TH YEAR OF ORDINATION INTO THE PRIESTHOOD
On the last day of Term 2, Friday 29th June at 10am the Year 5 and 6 classes will be leading the Mass in honour of Fr. John’s 60 years ordained as a Catholic priest. We invite parents and friends to join in the celebrations which will be followed by a
morning tea in the Heart of St Clare’s Garden.
Enrolments for next year are still open so if you have a child eligible for Prep (born between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014) or you have family or friends who are looking for a high quality education in a Catholic School, then please encourage them to contact the school, check out our website or come and visit to enrol their child.

participate in the Interschool Readers’ Cup. They have been busy

We extend a blessing on all the children with our school and Parish community who are preparing for their Confirmation on June 22nd. This important ritual confirms the formal faith journey that was begun at Baptism. Confirmation is the second Sacrament of Initiation, with Eucharist being the climax, when the children can participate in sharing the meal of our Lord at mass. This coming Sunday, sacramental candidates will take part in the Confirmation Preparation Day at St Clare’s. They will first be presented with a copy of the Creed at the 9am Mass. Parents
are then required to sign in their child at the Good Samaritan
Centre. Please check your Sacramental Programme information sheets for further information or contact Tania
Gilbert on 0438 173 795.
