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.

Thank you to all who supported Mission Month. During the month classes got involved in a variety of activities as well as our annual Crazy Sock Day & Melbourne Cup Gold Coin Day. It was tremendous to see the generosity of so many people within our school community. Mission Month was not simply about fundraising; at our Assemblies and in class our prayers were very much focused on those less fortunate than ourselves, in-particular children throughout the world.

Over the past few weeks a number of our Year 3 students have been learning about the Sacrament of Penance and preparing to experience for the first time the forgiveness of Jesus when they make their first confession on Thursday night at 7:00pm. Their attitudes and values towards this sacrament and its meaning in their lives will depend very much on the attitudes and values held by their parents. “God be forgiving of us for our past neglects. Help us to be so secure in your love that we pay attention to others, especially our children.” Please keep these children in your prayers.

The final meeting of the P&F Meeting will be held on Thursday, 20 November, commencing at 7pm in the Staffroom. This is primarily an opportunity for the Association to acknowledge and celebrate all that has been achieved by the Parents and Friends of our school over the past 12 months.

As we do look to enjoying the fruits of our labour, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all who have been associated and involved with the Association over the year. For me as Principal, the P&F is a wonderful consultative body for raising and discussing ideas, generating feedback and sharing the vision of making St Therese’s School not only a school of learning dedicated to providing a quality education, but also a community of faith which openly recognises Christ and seeks to live and proclaim His Gospel message. Over the course of 2014, I firmly believe that together we have continued to renew and reshape the type of school which we each assert to have our children be part of as they learn about themselves and the world in which they live.


Over the next few weeks, each class in our school will be collecting items for a Christmas Hamper for our local Vinnies to support families in need. If you could just add one or two extra items to your shopping list that would be great. St Vincent de Paul requests some basic non-perishable food items, which will be passed on to support struggling families and offer some emotional support for those who have no-one to turn to. These hampers will be presented to the St Vincent de Paul Society in the last week of school.
