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.

Our sports carnival on the last day of term was a fantastic day. Congratulations to the Barrine team on the win and to all of the Sports Captains and other senior students who made the day easier for all involved. Their leadership on the day was outstanding. Thanks also to the large number of families who attended. Your presence and participation, whether it was dressing in team colours, competing in the ball games or taking on the Senior students in ball games, added so much to the day and I am sure your children were very proud of you. Carole’s organisation, as usual, ensured the day ran smoothly. Our next outing is the Evelyn Sports Carnival on Thursday 31st July and Friday 1st August at Marshall Park. Training has already begun and students are putting in a tremendous commitment to wanting to do well. Students will be wearing shoes for all running events this year.
On Friday we held a prayer celebration for a NAIDOC and it was beautiful looking out onto the oval whilst the prayers were
read and hymns sung. A big thank you to the Senior students who were involved with the day and to the teachers for their
creative ideas for our activity afternoon.
