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.

Last week’s performances over Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening saw a cast of some 130 students take to the stage. Not only was the production itself a wonderful testament to the creative and dramatic flair of many of our students, but a great opportunity for our school to be showcased within the broader community. There has been some excellent feedback received – a credit to everyone involved in any way with the musical over the many months of preparation or in the performances of last week.

In acknowledging the success of this year’s musical, I would like to once again extend enormous thanks to all who contributed in any way. Thank you to the generous individuals and groups; mums, dads, staff members, friends of the school community and members of the wider community; who helped out with all of the many and various aspects of the production. The enormous generosity of time, input and goodwill shown by just so many is acknowledged with deep gratitude and heartfelt appreciation.

Huge thanks must also be extended to Doris Cuda who was the drive, energy and visionary behind the performance. Doris has a unique capacity for harnessing the energy, effort, ideas and input of an incredible number of people. She was also tireless in her energy and commitment to seeing the project through to completion and inspirational in her capacity to just bring it all together. We are certainly very blessed and fortunate to have someone of Doris’ calibre and thank her for the rich contribution that she has made in this way for many, many years.

On Friday 29th August, ten Year 6/7 girls were chosen to represent St Therese’s in the Fowlers Group Marlin Coast Primary School Carnival held at the Martyn St Netball Courts. What a fantastic day of netball they had. Each and every girl played with such passion and determination which saw them win 6 out of the 8 games played.

The team consisted of Bayley, Jade, Courtney, Emma, Rebeka, Tahlya, Jasmin, Kasey, Ashley and Neisha. All of these girls should be so very, very proud of themselves, playing some really tough games of netball and displaying such brilliant sportsmanship throughout the whole day.

These ten girls along with another nine girls from St Therese’s will be playing against other Catholic Primary Schools to compete in the ‘Mary Mills Cup’ on Friday 19th September. We wish them all the very best of luck to bring home what I hear is a very impressive trophy It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of this girls Netball team, and the team can’t wait to do it all again for Mary Mills.

The Premier’s Reading Challenge is now closed. All student Reading Logs have been entered into the database and all students who completed the challenge will receive a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier. Here at St Therese’s we entered the names of all participants into the draw to win our Library Smiggle Pack. This will be drawn during Week 10. Certificates will be issued to schools on the 24th of October and will be presented to students once they arrive. A very big thank you and congratulations to everyone who participated this year.

Each year Mario Calanna, working with Cairns Earlville Rotary, hosts the Junior Speaking Competition for all students from Years 4 to 7. The finals for this event were held at the Cairns Regional Council Reception Room on Monday 8th September, with two students from St Therese’s, Josie (Year 6/7) and Matthew (Years 4/5) presenting their finals speeches. Both spoke confidently and were worthy representatives of our school. Congratulations to them both on their achievement in reaching the finals, and to all students who participated throughout the heats.
