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.
REMEMBRANCE DAY LITURGY
On the 11th hour of the 11th of November in 1918, the Armistice to end World War 1 was signed, marking the end of a conflict that had left many Australians dead or injured. At 11am students and staff gathered near our Remembrance Garden to give thanks to all those who gave their lives in service to our country.
PREP TRANSITION DAYS
Day 3 of our Prep Transition Sessions was held yesterday. Katie Stafford, our Guidance Counsellor spoke to the families about helping with anxiety and ways to build confidence and resilience. Day 4 will be held on Wednesday, November 27. Please join us if you would like to hear more of what we do with technology at school.
The Christmas Concert will be held on Friday, November 29 at 6.30pm. All classes will present items and the choir will entertain as well. The lucky door prize, a Christmas hamper donated by the staff will be drawn at the end of the concert. Come earlier, if you wish and bring a picnic. All classes will perform, the choir will sing and as usual, the concert will conclude with a whole school finale.
CRAZY SOCK DAY
On November 4th we held Crazy Sock Day. It was great to see so many children in their bright and funky socks. On this date the Social Justice Club collected the Class Collection Socks for the Sock Weigh-In and Count, which concluded our fundraising efforts for Socktober.
The class with the heaviest sock was Year 3 with a weight of 1.85kg. Year 4/5 raised the most money with a total of $79.65. All classes made a wonderful effort to contribute to this fundraising event with a total of $239.05 raised by our small school. I’d like to thank all families again for their amazing support in raising money for the Catholic Mission during the month of October.
