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.

ANZAC DAY LITURGY & WORLD'S BIGGEST POPPY
St Therese’s School community will gather to remember the ANZACs and all who have served their country in a prayer liturgy on 23rd April 2015. Family and friends are welcome to join us at 1:45pm in the school hall. Our thanks go to the Year Five classes in advance for their preparation and presentation of this prayer celebration.
In celebration of the centenary anniversary of ANZAC Day, staff and students from St Therese’s School will collaborate in an attempt to create an image of the World’s Biggest Poppy! For this event, an aerial photograph will capture the whole school community, carefully positioned in the form of a poppy flower. This occasion will take place on Thursday 23rd April at 9:30am on the lower oval.
Friday 27th was a ‘take two’ on our annual School Cross Country event. The weather was kind to us this time and students were able to compete without threat of cyclonic conditions! It was lovely to see so many parents attend the event as well as grandparents and friends. The children had a wonderful day.
The final results were:
McAuley House in 1st place with 299 points
Lennon House in 2nd place with 268 points
Phelan House in 3rd place with 235 points
MacKillop House in 4th place with 235 points
Well done to all who took part!
EASTER HAT PARADE
The Easter Bonnet Parade is an eggs-citing annual tradition at St Therese’s and a most eggs-cellent occasion in anticipation of Easter. Children from Prep – Year 3 are invited to decorate an Easter Hat using symbols of Easter - flowers, eggs, chicks and bunnies – and join our fun parade on Thursday 2nd April at 2pm in the hall. Parents and friends are most welcome to attend this eggs-travagant event.
Monday 30th March to Thursday 2nd April will be loose change week. All money raised will go towards purchasing items for our 2015 Mother’s Day Fete.
There will be an A3 sheet with “I Love Mum” written on it placed in each classroom. The idea is for the students to bring in coins throughout the week to fill the words on as many sheets as they can and at the end of the week the class with the most sheets filled will win a Pizza lunch.
