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.

Our school community will gather to celebrate and remember the ANZACs and all who have served their country in a prayer liturgy on Friday April 24. Family, friends and parish members are welcome to join us at 11.30am. The human qualities of mateship, courage and sacrifice are associated with the spirit of the ANZACs and proudly embraced as a part of our National Identity. Servicemen and women who served under the Australian flag in conflicts and peacekeeping missions, demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to the freedom of our Country (and continue to do so still!). Sons and daughters of our nation were prepared to pay the ultimate sacrifice to defend their homeland and save its people. Ironically, through their sad sacrifice, we have been given freedom in our lives.

We will be holding our Read Aloud Day in Term 2 as we are running out of time this term. This will be a simple process of opening the Library over a period of two lunch times and students will be encouraged to read aloud to other students present. More details will be disseminated to teachers and students next term.

As we reach the final week of Lent and the completion of 'Project Compassion', may we express sincere appreciation for support and commitment shown to this fundraising event. Such generosity highlights the high value that we place on the social teachings of human dignity and justice for the poor and vulnerable. Stories from some of the poorest people in the world have been shared to make us more aware of the burden of food insecurity and how Caritas Australia has assisted communities throughout the world develop sustainable farming practices. Could students please return their Project Compassion boxes ASAP.


The Year 6 class was supposed to have been on camp this week but we have postponed this due to the uncertainty surrounding the movements of Cyclone Nathan. We have secured a new booking from Wednesday 10th to Friday 12th June.
