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.

BOOK WEEK - 18th - 22nd AUGUST
This week – Week 6 we are celebrating Book Week. Each year, schools and public libraries across Australia spend a week celebrating books and Australian authors and illustrators. The theme this year is Connect to Reading. We begin Book Week with a performance from School Performance Tours. Our students from Prep to Year 4 will watch “Pick a Peck of Pickled Poems” with our older students watching “ Stories from Halfway around the World”. Other ways we are planning to connect to reading include videoing students reading stories and linking them to the books for others to watch through QR Codes, and exploring the shortlisted books in the Library.Students will also use world globes to explore where some of our favourite stories come from and we will be creating book marks for everyone to use. Our Book Week will conclude with our annual Book Week dress-up parade in the Hall for students from Prep – Year 3.Students from these year levels can come dressed as their favourite book character.
SCIENCE WEEK 11 - 15th AUGUST
On Friday the 15th of August our St Therese’s School community celebrated Science Week. Under the amazing guidance of Miss Exarhos and Miss Watt the students of Year 5L and 5R demonstrated a range of scientific experiments and provided the opportunity for students from all other year levels to have a go with these experiments. It was an exciting and fun day, which saw smiles on the faces of all students – big and small.
WALKATHON/ COLOUR RUN
Once again, Friday’s Walkathon/ Colour Run was a resounding success with students enjoying the opportunity to complete as many laps of the top oval as possible within the timeframe of the final session. Whilst the initiative has a strong focus on fundraising, let us not forget the significance of such opportunities in promoting physical activity, group participation and school spirit. Sincere thanks to the Parents and Friends for their time and effort given to organizing this event, especially Mrs Robeck who was just so instrumental in ensuring that every detail was attended to.
Laps walked by each of the team houses were:
Congratulations to all students with special commendations to McAuley who are the winners of this year’s Walkathon Perpetual Trophy.
Monies are now being collected and can be forwarded to your child’s class teacher. A big thank you to all our parents who in anyway supported this year’s Walkathon/ Colour Run as well as to all those who have sponsored students.
Our Parish’s First Reconciliation enrolment evening for this program is on Thursday 18th September and is for all baptised children in Years 3 – 7. The registration evening will begin at 7:00pm and is for parents. Parents can submit the nomination form from now.

On Friday 8th August, ten St Therese’s girls were chosen to represent St Therese’s in the ‘Fowlers Group Primary School ‘Netta’ Netball Carnival’ held at the Martyn St Netball Courts.
What a fantastic day of netball they had. Each and every girl played with such enthusiasm and determination which saw them win 4 out of the 7 games they played.
The team consisted of Mikala, Amy, Madeline, Sarah, Hannah, Lana, Isabella, Hayley, Lisa and Georgie.
All of these girls should be so very, very proud of themselves with their beautiful behaviour and such wonderful sportsmanship displayed throughout the whole day, representing their school at such a high level for their young age. It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of this girls Netta team.
