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.

No doubt you have all heard of the wonderful results of our entry into the Picasso Cow Makeover Competition. Congratulations to our Year 6/7 students and to Mrs Nichols, Miss Stewart and Carole for such a great outcome. We are indeed fortunate to have such creative people in our midst. We are getting lots of publicity which is wonderful for our little school.
WOW! what a wonderful effort from everybody. We had some of the craziest and funniest socks and accessories ever seen. A wonderful effort was made to raise money for the poor in Jamaica and this will be sent to the Missions to help. Thank you, to all who participated and donated to the Mission boxes. The winning class for our Coin Race was Year 5. Well done everybody!!
WORLD TEACHERS' DAY
On Friday 31st October, Australia celebrates World Teachers' Day. World Teachers' Day provides the opportunity to draw public attention to the role of teachers worldwide as well as to the crucial importance of the role they play in society. World Teachers' Day acknowledges the efforts of teachers in an increasingly complex, multicultural and technological society. It is a day on which students, parents and community members can demonstrate their appreciation for the contributions that teachers have made to their community. As a school community, we would like to commend and thank the teachers of our school for the vital work that they do, for the example that they set, for the support that they extend, and for the extra mile that they walk each and every day to ensure that students are given the very best of learning opportunities.
ST VINCENT DE PAUL
CHRISTMAS HAMPER DRIVE
We are fast approaching the Christmas season and as a school have been asked to show support to St Vincent de Paul by helping in 2014.
There will be a collection box outside Miss Stewart's office whereby donations of non-perishable goods can be left for the making of hampers for those people in need over the festive season. Items such as tinned foods, packet mixes and other non-perishable goods can be dropped off and will be greatly appreciated.
