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.

END OF YEAR AWARDS and PICCONE
As we head towards the end of the year and look to celebrating
the successes and achievements of our seniors and upper
school students in particular, students and teachers are busy
gathering all the information they need to nominate for various
awards and to record special events and activities they have
been involved in over the past year.
Our End of Year Awards Ceremony is a very important part of
our celebrations at the end of the school year and very much
a part of St Therese’s tradition. Our End of Year Awards
Celebrations will take place this year, on Wednesday 30th
November from 1.30pm.
Nominations will soon be made by school officers, teachers and
administration staff who will nominate students who exhibit the
qualities celebrated and recognised by each award. Successful
students in Year 6 will receive a range of awards such as the
Masonic Lodge Award, which recognises students who have
demonstrated participation in school and community activities
and who is industrious, reliable, sociable and displays initiative
and the Dale and Beth Robinson Trophy which is awarded
to a student who has demonstrated involvement in the
sacraments and who displays Christianity in action. All of the
awards were initiated by members of our school community,
both past and present. Please see the newsletter for further information on the Piccone
Awards and other End of Year Awards. If you have any queries, please direct them to your
child’s class teacher in the first instance. Please remember that
the cut off date for Piccone Points is Friday 11th November.
