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.

Enrolment applications are now being taken for Prep 2016 - click here for informationSt 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.

The first half of the term has certainly been a hive of activity and excitement; very few tears and limited reluctance to come to school….and that’s just the staff, so we are well and truly off to a great start and looking forward as the weeks continue to unfold.

Thank you to Carmen Mellor and parent helpers for giving additional time cooking, packaging and distributing the pancakes sold on Pancake Tuesday. Thank you to Max Stocks and Vico for donating the ingredients to make these pancakes. Thank you to all the students, staff and parents who supported this initiative to raise money for Caritas. Over 1600 pancakes were cooked and sold!

Over the next two Saturday’s our two St Therese’s Spelling Bee teams will be competing in the first round of the Mt Sheridan Spelling Bee. The Year 3-5 team will compete on March 7 and the Year 6-8 team will compete on March 14. The Finals will be held on March 28. It will be great if we can have lots of support for our teams on Saturday.

St Therese’s Parish Confirmation Ceremony will be held this year on Thursday, 18 June at 6:30pm, followed by First Communion on Sunday 21 June at 9:30am and 5:30pm Masses. The registration evening is on Thursday 30 April and is for children in Years 4 to 6 who have already received the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The registration evening will begin at 7.00pm and is for parents. To receive a registration form in advance, please e-mail saint-th@bigpond.net.au .

Please note that those who registered last year for Reconciliation will have already completed this registration process.


The GRIP Leadership conference provides an opportunity for students who have been elected to positions of school leadership to develop their leadership skills. On 8th February, the four School Captains from St Therese’s participated in this event, which was held at the Pullman’s International Hotel.

Sam, Emerson, Kobi and Brooke thoroughly enjoyed the day, and had a chance to meet with other school leaders across Cairns. “We feel that we have learnt a lot from this day. We discussed ideas like, ‘paying it forward’ to the school community and making the most of opportunities given to us,” reported the four students. “We also learnt that you don’t need a badge to be a leader; everyone can be a leader. People just need to have the courage to put themselves forward and make the right decisions.”

Learning for the team was gained through a variety of activities like role play, sharing of personal stories about students who took on initiatives in their schools and games. “We had a great opportunity to be able to get up on stage and win some badges from activities throughout the day!” they said. Sam, Emerson, Kobi and Brooke had an awesome day at the GRIP Leadership Conference and brought back a message that will be carried on throughout St Therese’s school.
