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.
As you are aware, we have had to put on hold a lot of our planned activities and celebrations and we are really not sure when these can be held. We have a list which includes Grandparents' Day, Father's Day, Sports Days, Feast Day celebrations, Under Eights Day; just to name a few and we are hoping that we will be able to squeeze these in as restrictions relax.
We are proceeding with the Year 6 camp in Week 5 of Term 3. (August 12 to 14) Details will be sent home early next term. We are heading out bush to Bedrock Village at Mt Surprise. Given our small numbers, we could not book our previous camp venues, so Carole sorted this experience for us. We could not have predicted these disruptions, so this has worked in our favour.

ZOO TO YOU
We were so lucky to have Andre from "Zoo To You" visit our School on Thursday last week. All the classes got to meet the animals and learn some amazing facts about them. It was very plain to see who did not like "Ebony" the black headed python. Click here to see some photos....
Lincoln said the sugar glider was cute and the salt water crocodile was cool.
Paddy said Ebony was terrifying. Froggy the frogmouth looked so intelligent while the sugar glider was adorable. I think everyone wanted one for a pet.
Cooper Dean said the sugar glider was his favourite because it was so fluffy and cute when he ate honey from Andre's finger.
Eevie said the sugar glider was fully and small. Ebony has so many different colours.
Rustin said he was happy to learn a lot of facts about the animals. Crocodiles can live up to 100 years.
Glacies said Chomp the crocodile has sharp teeth and can swim very fast in the water.
Aaliyah said Chip the sugar glider was fluffy and loved the way it can glide.
Richie said he liked Ebony the snake, the sugar glider was fluffy and I liked Froggy the frogmouth.
Henry P said the snake was his favourite because it sheds its skin.
Oscar liked the crocodile because it is a big underwater animal.
Laurie said Chip the sugar glider eats pollen from the flowers.
