Welcome to St Joseph's Parish School, Atherton

St Joseph’s Parish School, catering for boys and girls from Prep to Year 6, is an integral part of the Cairns Diocese and the Atherton Catholic Parish. Located approximately one hour’s drive from Cairns, Atherton sits within the heart of the naturally beautiful and agriculturally rich Atherton Tablelands. Despite its many changes over the years, St Joseph’s Parish School has remained committed to providing its students with a well-balanced and relevant education and curriculum.

This website is designed to provide a practical and informative view of our school but by no means replaces personal contact. Please browse at your leisure but also feel free to contact us at any time.

Latest News & Events

On Friday the 13th May the Fire Brigade came to visit the Year 1 and Year 1/2 class. They spoke to students about fire safety highlighting many safe procedures to consider inside and outside their house, to prevent a fire. The Fire Brigade explained that every house needs to have a smoke alarm as our nose goes to sleep when our body goes to sleep. They explained to students what to do if a fire occurs in their house. They demonstrated how to stop, drop and roll if their clothes catch on fire. They brought in a protective suit to demonstrate to the children how quickly they need to get dressed and what they need to wear to help protect them when fighting a fire. We will be having another visit, with the Fire Engine, in about two weeks to learn more.

Last term, Mini Vinnies celebrated St Patricks day with a green free dress and treat day. This event raised over $400. The money was presented last week at assembly to the local St Vincent de Paul President, who told the assembly it would be very useful with winter approaching, and would help provide meals and blankets to many local families.       

As part of celebrating National Reading Family Month our school will host a Book Fair. This is to be held in the library from Monday 23rd until Friday 27th May. All are welcome to come for a look and paperwork will go home closer to the time.

We have received a letter from the Mossman Mill that cane crushing will recommence on Monday 30th May 2016. They have asked that we bring this to parents' and students' attention. Let's all remind our children of the need for heightened road safety this time of year.
