St Teresa's Ravenshoe is a Catholic primary school catering for boys and girls from Prep to Year 6. At 920 metres above sea level, Ravenshoe is Queensland's highest town and is situated 147 kms south west of Cairns. It is surrounded by World Heritage listed rainforest and boasts distinctly beautiful wildlife, birds and many tourist attractions.
St Teresa's has an enrolment of 81 students and a staff of 20.
Our website may be the first point of contact for information about our wonderful school, but there is nothing quite like exploring the real thing. Please contact us and we would be delighted to arrange a time to show you around.
We come to end of a very busy and productive term and most importantly, we have not had to engage in Remote Learning. What a relief!
Having said that, we are preparing just in case this might happen in Term 4. On the first Wednesday, our teachers will be working with Christine Stratford from CES, continuing down the Google Classroom path. Relief teachers will take care of your children that day.
We are looking forward to our Fun Sports Day tomorrow. We will make a call on this later today as we will not go ahead if it is cold or rainy. Carole, as usual, has done wonderful work in the lead up to the day. Please remember that you will need to sign in and keep a reasonable distance from each other. There is plenty of space.
We received some very exciting news last week. Four of our students won prizes in the competition organised by the Ravenshoe Writers Group. Congratulations to Summer, Brydie-Lee, Aaliyah and Evie on their great work. The cash prizes will come in handy as the holidays approach.
We are negotiating with the new owners of the Atherton Pool to find a suitable time for our annual Swimming program. This involves our students in Year 1 to Year 3. We will let you know when we hear about this.
Carole successfully applied for a Sporting Schools Grant and as a result, we have 4 Tuesdays of cricket in Term 4. All the children will participate in this skills based programme.
We had a wonderful time on Tuesday with the Dance North people who ran two dance workshops with the children.
Thank you for everything you have done this term. We all really appreciate your support. Have a wonderful holiday and we will see you on October 6.
ST TERESA'S FEAST DAY CELEBRATIONS
We will be holding our annual whole school St Therese Feast Day Celebrations on Friday 9th October, Week 1 of Term 4. The schedule for the day is outlined in our latest newsletter. All families are most welcomed to come along and join in on the fun with your children if you are able to. We’d love to see you there. I will email out the student groups prior to the day along with a copy of the timetable of events.
Book Week will be held in Term 4, Week 3 October 17 - October 23. Students can come dressed up as their favourite characters along with the book their character is from on Wednesday 21st October. The students will parade their outfits on assembly.
