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.
