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.

Welcome back to the start of Term 2. While the two-week reprieve never seems quite long enough, it nevertheless provides us with a fleeting opportunity to relax and hopefully regain the energy required to tackle the weeks ahead. I trust parents and students enjoyed their time and are now ready to get back into the swing of things.
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.
END OF TERM 1 WRAP UP
Thank you on behalf of Caritas for your wonderful generosity towards those less fortunate than ourselves. With your help we really will be in a position to help provide “Food for Life” for so many people. Our school total during this time was $3428. Thank you once again for your continued support.
Holy Week Liturgy
Congratulations to our Year 6’s who participated in the Holy Week Liturgy at the end of last term. It was a very powerful prayer experience. Thank you for participating so well with this.
Prep – Year 3 Easter Hat Parade
At the end of last term we also held an Easter Hat Parade for Prep to Year 3 students. There certainly were some very colourful hats. Congratulations for joining in with this.
A huge thank-you to family, friends and members of the wider Parish community who have bought and sold tickets in this year’s Multi-Raffle. Drawn as part of the annual Parish-School Fete, the Multi-Raffle forms a significant part of the fundraising that results from the Fete overall. All students have been issued a book of 10 tickets with many of these already being returned once sold. Additional books are still available with time to get a few more tickets sold before Wednesday, 6th May when all books are due to be returned.
MICHAEL MANGAN CONCERT
This week, on Friday the 1st May, we will end our week with, no doubt, a very lively and exciting performance from Michael Mangan. Michael is a composer, teacher and music liturgist who has composed over 250 pieces which are widely used in Liturgy and Religious Education programmes in schools and parishes throughout Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA. His compositions are known for their "singability" and suitability for liturgical celebrations, especially with children. Many of our songs that the children sing at liturgies and Masses have been composed by Michael, so it will certainly be very worthwhile having someone with his talents perform for us this week. Parents are welcome to attend. Performances will be in the hall at the following times:9:10am – 10:20am, 11:10am – 12:20pm, 1:35pm – 2:45pm.
