- Faith & Mission
St Clare’s Catholic School is the newest Catholic primary school in Townsville, serving the growing Northern Beaches area of the city. A co-educational school, St Clare’s offers Kindergarten through to Year 6 in a welcoming and inclusive community environment. St Clare's Catholic School belongs to the St Anthony's Parish. Along with St Francis, St Clare is one of the founders of the Franciscan movement that has been part of the Catholic Church's life since the early 13th century. St Clare's Catholic School follows the Franciscan spirituality that stresses simplicity, humility, dependence on God, a love for the poor, and finding God in others and the natural world.
The school’s motto is, ‘Be a Clear Light’ and together staff, families, students and the parish community work tirelessly to make the school a unique and dynamic place that welcomes everyone and helps each individual realise their fullest potential. The school community is supportive and encouraging, creating an environment with a strong sense of belonging for students.
