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.Enrolment applications for Kindergarten 2013 are now being taken.

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.

The fete will be held on Friday 13th March. We really need to hit the ground running once school starts again. If you missed the meeting and wish to join the parents who have already indicated they will help, please contact the school.
