Principal’s welcome

​Since arriving at Feluga State School at the beginning of 2012, I have enjoyed the beauty, friendliness and seclusion of this very green, rural community and school. 

Nestled at the northern end of the Tully River valley, Feluga, with an average rainfall of approximately 5.5 metres of rain is very wet during most of the summer. Only during the cooler months is there less precipitation.

Generally, the children of the school come from the houses and cane and cattle farms that cover the valley but families also send their children from nearby Tully.

Many of the children of the school can boast of a parent or grandparent who has preceded them at the school.

The people of the nearby community are heavily involved in the working for the school in terms of providing expertise for gardening adventures, beautifying the grounds or fund-raising.

Our priorities, like most schools, lie in the improvement of the individual student; academically, socially and as a member of a vibrant society. In each case, we have programs in place to assist in that development.


Feluga State School is part of the Ulysses Cluster of Schools, comprising Cardwell, El Arish, Lower Tully, Kennedy, Mission Beach, Murray Upper and Tully State Schools and Tully High School.
