Welcome to our website.....
St Therese's Catholic Primary School is set beneath the tropical foothills of the rapidly growing southern sector of Cairns and easily accessible to the surrounding residential communities. Within close proximity are shopping centres, secondary colleges and sporting grounds.
Our students participate in a wide range of activities and we are especially proud of our music, dance, drama and sporting programs. We encourage a healthy lifestyle through our involvement in a variety of fitness and sport activities and adopt healthy eating habits in our tuck shop.
St Therese's students strive to excel through heart, spirit and mind, experiencing learning opportunities that inspire, challenge and equip students with the knowledge, skills and values for success in the 21st century. We emphasize core skills and understanding whilst integrating innovative ICT, preparing your child for the world of tomorrow. Students gain a strong sense of social and ethical issues of the modern world with guidance from the Bible and Catholic compassion.
When asking "Which school is best for my child" we hope that ours is one you consider. Please feel free to contact us for further information or to arrange a tour of our school.

FETE WRAP UP
First of all I would like to say an enormous Thank-You to all involved with Saturday’s Parish and School Fete. What an outstanding success! There was indeed a wonderful spirit in terms of community and people coming together to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes on offer. The massive amount of planning, organisation and energy given by so many people in just so many ways can be certainly attributed to what was achieved over the weekend.
Work put in by parents, parishioners, staff, students and other helpers was absolutely marvellous and the generosity and goodwill of just so many people and community organizations was simply overwhelming. It is indeed a credit to the P&F, and particularly Hayley and Krysta-lee who took on the huge role of careful coordination of the various aspects over the past months. St Therese’s can only stand to benefit from the monies raised and the genuine sense of community spirit that remains alive and active because of such occasions.
DISTRICT CROSS COUNTRY
The first six place-getters in each of the races held at our school cross country joined other students from independent schools from across the Cairns region at the District Schools Cross Country held at St Mary’s College last Thursday. Feedback received has been incredibly positive in terms of the participation and great sportsmanship displayed by our school team. Overall, St Therese’s can be incredibly proud of their efforts, taking fifth place (aggregate) in the district cross-country. – Congratulations to all those who participated.
As we look at Prep enrolments for 2016, we have approximately 40 confirmed new families who have accepted placements so far. This term will see existing families go through the process of interviews and offers of placements as was the process for new families in Term 1.
Even with the commencement of the new College at Mt Peter, we will maintain a full cohort of four Prep classes with a total intake of between 104 and 108.
CONFIRMATION AND EUCHARIST
A number of our students have begun their preparations for receiving the Sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist. I know as a community we wish these children all the best as they take another step in their Catholic faith journey. This is a very special time for them – please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
