Welcome to our website.....

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 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.

In August, libraries across Australia celebrate our wonderful and talented authors and illustrators. At the end of the month we celebrate all the authors and illustrators who were nominated and shortlisted for awards in a special week known as Book Week. (Monday 24th August to Friday 28th August). During the week we will be endeavouring to set up some displays for the students. The theme for this year is Books Light up our World. We will be encouraging students to visit the library this week and read a book or two.

What a wonderful day we had last Friday at the inaugural Pyjamas and Hot Chocolate Day. Thank you to everyone who truly entered into the spirit of the day. We raised $203.00 which we have given to Deacon Peter and Angela de Haas to purchase food hampers for the drought affected families in the Gulf Savannah Parish.
