Welcome to our website.....
St Teresa's Ravenshoe is a Catholic primary school catering for boys and girls from Prep to Year 7. 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 140 students and a staff of 17. The school was established in 1950 by the Sisters of Mercy and despite the absence of the Sisters in the school, the charism of the Mercy order remains an integral part of daily life.
Our school was named in honour of St Therese of Lisieux; known universally as The Little Flower hence the rose in our logo. Our motto; Knowledge, Love and Truth informs and underpins all that we aspire to achieve.
We welcome you to our school community and look forward to the journey that we will take together; a journey characterised by respect, dignity, hard work and excellence and guided by the person of Jesus Christ.
I invite you to browse our website so that you can learn more about our wonderful school; St Teresa's.

ECHO CREEK CAMP
Our year 6/7 students, accompanied by Mrs Nichols, Mrs Smith and Pat Gillespie, attended the annual camp at Echo Creek near Tully. Despite the rain, we had a fantastic time and most of the planned activities were able to be completed. Highlights were the rock climbing, abseiling and laser tag.
Ava is raising money for the Breast Cancer Foundation. On Friday 29th August we are having a ―Dress Up In Pink Day at School with a gold coin donation going towards Ava's efforts as well as Guess How Many Lollies in the Jar—50cents a ticket.
Today our choir performed at the Sensational Seniors function at the golf club. We had put together a repertoire of "old songs," that were a real hit with the guests. The cute factor will always kick in. The children looked and sounded delightful. Many thanks to the parents who helped with transport.
Over the next few weeks we will be holding lessons for those students who will be undertaking the Sacrament of First Eucharist (Holy Communion). Students will participate in the lessons before celebrating the sacrament on Sunday 14th September. Should any parents wish to discuss anything please let me know. Miss Stewart
