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.

As we complete another school year, I would just like the opportunity to thank all parents and carers who have helped out in so many ways throughout the year. You, the parents and carers, are an absolutely vital ingredient in the success of this school, contributing richly to the quality of what students experience here and supporting their efforts to grow and learn. We truly appreciate all the help and involvement, and look forward to your ongoing participation in 2014.
I would also like to thank all the staff for their tireless work throughout the year. This last term has been particularly busy for them and they have worked many extra hours. The phrase “going the extra mile” is often used but never more fittingly than when applied to the staff of St Therese’s School.
and a Final Word..... May each of you celebrate this beautiful season with love in your home, joy in your world and peace in your heart. I pray that this Christmas will be a time of celebration in which Christ is born anew and truly present, and that the New Year holds everything that you wish it to be. Have a happy and safe holiday. Kevin Browning
STUDENT LEADERSHIP 2014
All student leaders have been elected for 2014. This involved both our Year 5 and Year 6 students, who will jointly share the leadership positions in the coming year.
In announcing this year’s student leaders I would like to commend all those who summoned the courage and put themselves forward for the various positions of leadership. It was truly encouraging to witness the number of students take to the stand and the outstanding quality of speeches delivered. We truly are blessed with some outstanding leaders here at St Therese’s School and I certainly look forward to working with all our leaders over the coming new year.

END OF YEAR SCHOOL MASS
The end of year whole school Mass will be on Friday 6th December at 9:00am in the church. We will farewell our Year 7 students and all other students and staff leaving the St Therese’s community. We invite everyone from the community to join us in celebrating the end of the 2013 school year.
