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

Latest News & Events
It is at this point of the year that all I really have to say is 'thank you'….to everyone. I have had an extremely blessed year; I have learnt many things; I have witnessed many things; I have felt many things…All of which I know are “God Moments”…yes the good, the bad, the joyous and the sad… no matter what the wrapping they have are all been presents from God. I have learnt many things…probably the most important is that of Generosity and Gratitude. Anyone can give, that’s easy, but giving with your whole heart with no expectation… now that requires a feat of effort. Again saying thank you to someone is also very easy, but being able to recognise situations in which to show heartfelt gratitude and express it sincerely…again that takes a feat of effort. During this Advent and Christmas holiday may you all be blessed with a deep sense of generosity and gratitude. It is one of the most important things we can teach our children, especially at this time of year.

We would like to thank the many parent volunteers who have helped in and around the school throughout 2013 from support in classrooms, working bees, on committees, on rosters, on the Fete or in any other way. We are grateful for this support and I know that the staff are also very appreciative. Thank you!
PHONE APP FOR CYCLONE SEASON
A Cairns Catholic Education phone app for smart phones and tablets (iPhone and Android) is now available for download. Staff and families are asked to please download this app as it will facilitate instant communication and push notifications in the case of cyclones and any other emergency situations. For those without a smart device, the content will be replicated on the home page of the new Cairns Catholic Education website at www.cns.catholic.edu.au, due to go live in early December. Our school will have its own version of this app in the new year, but until then, please download the Cairns Catholic Education app by searching for ‘Cairns Catholic Education in your device’s app store.
