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.

DAY FOR DANIEL – FRIDAY 31ST OCTOBER
The 10th annual Day for Daniel will be held on Friday 31st October 2014. The Day for Daniel is a National Day of Action to raise awareness of child safety, protection and harm prevention and to honour the memory of Daniel Morcombe. It is about educating children and adults with respect to keeping kids safe through child safety and protection initiatives. It aims to help empower our children to ‘Recognise, React and Report’ if they feel something is not right.
On Friday 31st of October students are asked to wear RED in acknowledgment of the Day for Daniel. Students from St Therese’s can wear their sports uniform or a red t-shirt. The Day for Daniel is also an opportunity for Australians to make a statement that crimes against children are not acceptable in modern Australia.
WORLD TEACHERS DAY
On Friday, 31st October, Australia celebrates World Teachers’ Day. World Teachers’ Day provides the opportunity to draw public attention to the role of teachers worldwide as well as to the crucial importance of the role they play in society. Internationally, World Teachers’ Day is celebrated on the first Friday in October. However, as this is usually during Australian school holidays, Australia celebrates the day on the last Friday in October of each year. World Teachers’ Day acknowledges the efforts of teachers in an increasingly complex, multicultural and technological society. It is a day on which students, parents and community members can demonstrate their appreciation for the contributions that teachers have made to their community and for the life-giving work they do in enriching the social, economic and intellectual fabric of our world.
ALL SAINTS (1st Nov) ALL SOULS (2nd Nov)
This week holds two celebrations of the Catholic Church. The first is the Feast of All Saints on Saturday 1st November followed by All Soul's Day on Sunday 2nd November. The feast days of All Saints and All Souls are two important feast days which fall on successive days and are closely linked. Over these two days we celebrate the mystery of the communion of Saints, that is, the ‘Holy’ people whom the Church has recognized.
The Feast of All Saints is a holy day of the Church honouring all saints, known and unknown. While we have information about many saints, and we honour them on specific days, there are many unknown or unsung saints, who may have been forgotten, or never been specifically honoured.
All Soul's Day (sometimes called the "Day of the Dead") is on 2nd November . All Soul's Day is a Roman Catholic day of remembrance for friends and loved ones who have passed away. The day purposely follows All Saint's Day in order to shift the focus from those in heaven to those in purgatory. The living pray on behalf of Christians who are in purgatory. It is a time to pray for their souls that they may be received into heaven. It is celebrated with Masses and festivities in honour of the dead.
While the Feast of All Saints is a day to remember the glories of Heaven and those there, the Feast of All Souls reminds us of our obligations to live holy lives and that there will be purification of the souls of those destined for Heaven.
The P&F will be holding our first Trivia Night Saturday 8th November. The theme will be Crazy Hair. We are currently looking for prizes for our raffles and auction. If you would like to donate a prize for our raffle or auction please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org or 0417727733.
