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.

SCHOOL MUSICAL - THANK YOU
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
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.
PREMIER'S READING CHALLENGE
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.
CALANNA JUNIOR SPEAKING COMPETITION
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.
