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.

OPENING NIGHT FOR "THROUGH THE AGES"
what a night! Between all the singing and dancing, my feet and
hands were sore from my continuous toe tapping and clapping.
Throughout the week, there has been a steady stream of
parents coming and going with costumes, coffee, teachers
covering classes and extra duties, students moving back and
forth from classes to rehearsals and the Director and her
support team across the school coordinating each
performance all accumulated to a sensational opening night.
Congratulations to everyone involved who formed the fabric in
bringing this performance to life! I still can’t stop talking about
it. I encourage all our families to not miss this extravaganza,
“Through The Ages”. Bravo! Bravo!
TAIWAN INTERNATIONAL EXCURSION AND
STAFF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT DURING THE HOLIDAYS
Whilst many of us might be enjoying a well-deserved break, there are a number of school activities that will be continuing throughout the break. We have a number of students along with our LOTE teacher Mr Magill who will be departing for Taiwan as part of our International school exchange with our sister school in Taiwan. I wish to acknowledge Mr Magill and Mr Gavin Rick from St Joseph’s School for giving their holiday and family time up to be with students for this marvellous learning opportunity. There will be a considerable number of staff engaging in professional development throughout the holidays as part of their commitment to being lifelong learners. I wish to acknowledge their contribution and commitment to being the best version of themselves, as lifelong learners.
A HUGE THANK YOU FOR A FABULOUS TERM
You only have to look at our school’s photo
gallery and see the Apple I-Movies on our
Facebook page to see our achievements for
this term and how productive it has been. All
the activities that included NAIDOC and Catholic Schools’
Week, school Masses, The Science Fair and Book Week and finally the amazing Arts performance “Through the Ages” truly
reflect our many talents and commitment to a holistic Catholic
education. All the events ran effortlessly, without a ‘hiccup’ because of dedication and overwhelming generosity provided
by all our staff, students, parents, volunteers and Catholic
Education Services team. Thank You so much! Each day
as I walk through the school seeing hundreds of smiles and
hearing the laughter, I am affirmed in the love for learning that
is clearly evident at this school. St Therese’s Primary School is
an amazing learning place where everyone feels welcome and
part of our family. St Therese’s is certainly a place where every
day people are making exceptional achievements! Now that’s
the spirit of community!
