About The School

St Clare’s Catholic School provided quality, Catholic education for children from Kindergarten through to Year 7.

The school opened in January 2011, welcoming 170 children and their families in the foundation year. St Clare’s has grown to become a popular educational choice for families in the Northern Beaches and surrounding areas of Townsville.

The school is based on the Franciscan tradition, following in the footsteps of St Francis of Assisi and St Clare.  The culture of the St Clare’s is built around being conscious of individual actions and making an effort to bring about a life of simplicity, justice and compassion.

St Clare’s Catholic School is a close-knit, welcoming and supportive community.

The Naming of St Clare's Catholic School

St Clare's Catholic School and St Anthony's Catholic College belong to the St Anthony's Parish. The parish is a Franciscan parish, led by Fr Giles Setter, a Franciscan Friar (Friar is Italian for Brother).

The parish is named in honour of St Anthony who was one of the early followers of St Francis of Assisi (founder of the Franciscan movement) and patron of the environment. Along with St Francis, St Clare is considered one of the founders of the Franciscan movement which has been part of the Catholic Church's life since the early 13th century.

Franciscan spirituality stresses simplicity, dependence on God, a love for the poor and finding God in others and in the natural world.

St Clare's Catholic School will therefore follow the Franciscan spirituality, particularly with an environmental focus.
