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.

EDMONTON ANZAC DAY SERVICE
On Monday St Therese’s joined the Edmonton Community
at the ANZAC Day march and service. A huge thank you to
all Parents and Friends who joined us for the morning. St
Therese’s was brilliantly represented at this event, so a huge
thank you to all the students who gave up their morning to
remember those who have served and continue to serve our
country. A huge thank you to all the parents who gave of their
time to organise and run the barbeque and cake stall.
On Saturday 14th May from 9.30am, we will be welcoming
prospective families to take a look around our school. We have
already held one open morning on Tuesday 26th April. These
Open Mornings are designed to show parents what our school
looks, sounds and feels like and is a chance to really show off
what a great school St Therese’s really is!
Groups of 10 or more parents and children will be welcomed
in the staff room first, then will be given a tour of the school,
visiting a few classes on the way, and will then finish up with a
cuppa and a chat back in the staff room.
If you know of any families who would like to come along to find
out a little more about St Therese’s, please ask them to contact
the school office for details of the Open Mornings.
PREP ENROLMENTS 2017
As we look at Prep enrolments for 2017, we have approximately 20 confirmed new families who have accepted placements so far. This term will see existing families go through the process of interviews and offers of placement, as was the process for new families in Term 1. We anticipate a full quota of Prep students enrolled for 2017, taking us up to 100 Prep students in total for next year.
We would like to invite parents of students in Year 3 to don their gardening gloves, pack up their wheelbarrows, shovels and brooms to help us out at the Term 2 Working Bee on Saturday 7th May from 8.00am to 12.00pm.
As the St Therese’s School motto says ‘Through the work of many, united as one, great things are done’, so join us in helping to make our school beautiful, take the opportunity to connect with other families and be part of a worthwhile community event. Light refreshments will be provided.
So pack your gloves, brooms and tools and volunteer to help out at a Working Bee. We need your help. Every bit helps!
