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

Each year parents, staff and students from years 5 and up are asked to participate in surveys as part of Federal Government compliance. The results of these surveys are then placed on the “Catholic Education Services - School Website”. The hyperlink for the survey has been open for the past few weeks and it will now remain open until the end of this term. This will hopefully give more parents an opportunity to contribute to the survey. At this stage we have only had 8 responses.

The hyperlink address to complete the parent survey is:

I would encourage as many parents as possible to complete the survey as this will assist in ensuring that the information is a true reflection of the opinions of the parent body within our school community. I thank you for taking the time to complete the survey.

Should anyone wish to receive a hard copy version of the survey please contact the office so that one can be made available to you. The information from the hardcopies will then be placed on the above link by a staff member from Catholic Education services.

This week is Book Week. To celebrate, all classes will be creating artworks based on one of the short listed books. This work will be displayed in the library for the next couple of weeks, so come in and have a look. Students will also be participating in a Book Week competition, which is to find the favourite book of some of our staff members. The answers can be found on our Reading Tree that is located outside the library.

Last Thursday and Friday the Year 4 class visited Echo Creek Adventure Centre for camp. Wow! It was amazing. We did lots of fun adventurous activities including, abseiling, rock climbing, challenge course, archery, bush survival walk and orienteering. We would like to thank Mrs Griffin and Mr Gee for accompanying us. If you ever get lost in the rainforest, Mr Gee is the person you need. He can light a fire using wet sticks and branches! It was great and we had lots of fun! Thanks Echo Creek!
