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.

Wow, what a fabulous week full of nutty professors, exploring
the wonderful world of science. National Science Week is
Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology. It is
an initiative from the Inspiring Australia strategy, which was
developed by the Australian Government to increase
engagement and interest in the sciences. Running each year in
August since 1997, it features more than 1700 events around
Australia. This year’s events at St Therese’s along with various
organizations including universities, research institutions,
libraries and museums presented spectacular events as part
of National Science Week. Throughout the week, our students
engaged in all sorts of activities from Drones to making robots. The finale was on Thursday night with eighty plus students
and their families presenting their experiments at St Therese’s
Science Fair in the Hall. On behalf of the school community
I wish to acknowledge Ms Exarhos, Mrs Lee and the staff
for coordinating all the events. I would also like to thank Mr Greg Gilboy from Hydraulic Solutions for bring in his drone
and donating prizes. I encourage you to access our school
facebook page to see highlights from all the events. I believe
that parent comment below summarises everyone thoughts
“What an AWESOME turn out of exhibits AND parents, friends
and family coming to look. My kids had such a great time and
once again are already planning what to do next year. I hope
we can keep this annual event going. It is a great opportunity
to let kids get in there and give it a go as well as have FUN!!!
Loved it !”
