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
Next week, Catholic schools across Queensland are reflecting, acknowledging and celebrating in a special way our distinctive mission and ministry of the Church. Catholic Education Week is celebrated each year across Queensland in the third week of Term 3 and presents a special opportunity for Catholic school communities and other Catholic Education agencies to celebrate our rich story in terms of faith as well as achievements and areas of excellence. In the spirit of the theme of Catholic Education Week, it gives us a wonderful chance to pause, pray and proclaim the Spirit of the Living God who is alive and lives within each of us.

This year’s theme Come Live Life in all its Fullness challenges each and every one of us to live out the message of Jesus and to reflect on the various ways we each endeavour to be life and bring life to our world. Join with us in celebrating this important week of identity and achievements.

P&F NEWS
P&F Meeting
The July general meeting of the P&F Association will be held this Thursday, 24th July, commencing at 7pm in the Staffroom. All parents and carers are warmly invited to come along and share in the partnership of education we provide here at St Therese’s. Your presence and contribution is valued. We look forward to seeing all who are able to make it.

P&F Walkathon/ Colour Run - August 8th
This year the P&F Walkathon is being transformed into a Colour Run. A note outlining the event and sponsorship forms will be going home this week.

There are great prizes to be won. There will be a prize for the student who raises the most money from each class. We will also be having a prize for the 2 students who raise the most money overall. There will also be a competition between classes. For the three classes that raise the most money, the teachers will be given money to buy class resources for their students to use.

We will need people to help set up, man the drinks stations and to encourage and support the children at various positions along the Walk-a-thon/Colour Run track. You are most welcome to walk with your children as the day of the Walk-a-thon/Colour Run is all about how much fun we can make this event for the children.

Should you have any questions about this event please do not hesitate to contact me on 0417 727 733.

CALANNA SPEAKING COMPETITION
Each year, the Cairns Earlville Rotary Club hosts the Calanna Junior Speaking Contest, offering both primary and secondary students the opportunity to showcase their public speaking talents at a regional level. The competition is attended by over 30 schools in the Cairns region, with St Therese’s as one of the participating schools.

Students from Years 4, 5, 6 and 7 are invited to take part in the competition with most of the preparation taking place in class. Teachers will work with students on creating their speeches, practising their delivery and nominating the best four students for each year level. In order to select the final four students to attend the Calanna Junior Speaking Competition at St. Mary’s College, we will be hosting a “Talk-Off” event for each of the two age groups. Dates and times for each “Talk-Off’ event are as follows:

For Section A (Years 4 & 5)
8.30am Tuesday 19th August

For Section B (Years 6 & 7)
8.30am Tuesday 26th August

All parents are invited to attend these events to support our budding young orators.

Congratulations to the 39 students who represented St Therese's at the District Inter-school Athletics Carnival last term. At the end of the day, St Therese's came 2nd place overall! A fantastic achievement and the highest we have reached for many years. With a total score of 235.83 points, we were not far behind St Francis Xavier who won the carnival with 277.67 points.

The following students were awarded medallions for overall age champion points: Jessica (1st), Cody (3rd), Josie (3rd), Lacey (1st), Adam (3rd).

The combined points from our Junior Boys (aged 10yrs) who attended the carnival saw St Therese's awarded the Junior Boys Trophy with 51 points, clear of St Josephs on 46. Our Junior Girls (aged 10 yrs) placed 2nd and Senior Girls (aged 11 & 12 yrs) also placed 2nd.
