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.

A big welcome back to you all as you return for the final term of the year. I have no doubt that the two-week break, while all too short, was nevertheless an opportunity to relax and clear the mind of the previous term and regain some energy needed to get us through what is typically a very busy time of the year. Nine weeks in length, the weeks will certainly zip by in usual speedy fashion. Already the calendar is fast filling with just so many various meetings, deadlines, events and end-of-school-year celebrations.
In the midst of the day-to-day mission of keeping our heads above water, I pray that each of you has a wonderful few months, and finds time to enjoy and savour the special moments, the friendship and support of one another and the chance from time to time to celebrate who we are and what we do.
WORLD MISSION MONTH
On Sunday 19th October, Catholics celebrate World Mission Sunday. Catholic Mission works with children in need in 160 countries around the world. The theme this year is ‘When I grow up I want to be alive’, which is inspired by Ephesians 2:4-6, ‘God who is rich in mercy... made us alive’, and invites students across Australia to reach out and help children who are vulnerable and in desperate need throughout the world. The focus of this year’s Catholic Mission World Mission Appeal is supporting the crucial work of the Jamaican Catholic Church in helping people turn away from violence and crime to seek a new future through the power of education and the spirit of Jesus Christ.
Here at St Therese’s it has been a tradition to raise money and awareness for children in need through activities and prayer. From 20th October – 31st October, each year level will support the Catholic Mission Appeal by holding a fundraising event.
There will be two whole school fundraising events this year for Mission Month. The first event will be a 'Socktober' day with students encouraged to wear odd or funny socks to school for a gold coin donation. This day will be held on Thursday 30th October. We will culminate our fund raising efforts for Catholic Missions by holding a free dress day on Melbourne Cup Day, Tuesday 4th November, where children may dress in a horse racing theme for a gold coin donation.
I encourage everyone to join with Catholic Mission this World Mission Month to reach out and help children who are vulnerable, impoverished and helpless in Jamaica and throughout the world.
St Mary's Catholic College is offering two 'one year' scholarships for students entering Year 7 and Year 8 in 2015. This is an initiative which aims to attract students who have academic potential and are interested in attending our College. Both scholarships are awarded on the basis of a competitive test which is independently set by the English and Mathematics Subject Coordinators at St Mary's Catholic College.

The P&F will be holding our first Trivia Night Saturday 8th November. The theme will be Crazy Hair.
