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.

CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Join us for our Catholic Education
Week Mass on Friday 29th July at
The Catholic Education Week 2016 theme
is "Opening Doors in the Year of Mercy".
This is also the theme our school has taken
on this year. During this special week St
Therese’s together with all other Catholic
Schools in Queensland will be celebrating with events that will
reflect the Year of Mercy, drawing on the symbolism that
Catholic schools ‘open doors’ for students in a holistic
Catholic Education Week offers us a special opportunity to
celebrate and promote our distinctive mission and ethos. At St
Therese’s as with all other Catholic education school we as
a community working together strive to make a difference in
the lives of those in our schools and in the wider community
by challenging young people to live out the message of Jesus
and to reach their full potential as compassionate, contributing,
life-giving members of society.
The theme “Opening Doors of Mercy” challenges all of us as
members of the Catholic education community to extend
tangible assistance to those in need and recognise and follow
the example of those who in some way ‘open doors’ for others.
During Catholic Education week St Therese’s will engage in
a variety of activities which promote Catholic education as a
faith-based education that nurtures a commitment to social
justice and a critical social consciousness.
PUPIL FREE DAY
St Therese's School will be holding a Pupil Free Day on Thursday, 21st July. This is followed by the Cairns Show Public Holiday which is Friday 22nd July. This is Week 2 of Term 3. Teachers will be joining other schools to undertake a day validating student performance in the Learning Areas of Reading, Mathematics and Science. Such opportunities are invaluable in terms of ensuring a more consistent approach across the Diocese in terms of teacher judgement, when assessing student performance. Please note that Outside of School Hours Care will NOT be running a program on the pupil free day.
