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.

Last Friday, we took our Senior class to the oasis that is Woodleigh. We had such a special day. The students participated thoughtfully, reverently and respectfully and therefore all our expectations and outcomes were realised. Many thanks to the parents who helped with transport, cooked sausages in the heat and shared their skills and talents with the students.
On Tuesday, twenty-five of our choir members entertained the residents of the Carinya home in Atherton and the Herberton hospital. Despite their hectic schedule with swimming etc, the students sang beautifully and the residents and staff appreciated this immensely. We have been invited back next year.
LEAGUE TAG INNISFAIL
10 of our students travelled to Innisfail to participate in the Billy Slater League Tag Challenge on Wednesday. The children had a fantastic day displaying great team camaraderie and sportsmanship.
FETE - MARCH 2015
The first fete meeting was held on Monday morning. 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.
Congratulations to Brooke whose project on Vietnam received a highly commended award at the state judging of the competition. Mrs Alice Grimstead, the president of the Ravenshoe CWA presented Brooke with her award at assembly.
