Welcome to St Joseph's Parish School, Atherton
St Joseph’s Parish School, catering for boys and girls from Prep to Year 7, 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.

YEAR 1 EXCURSION
The excursion to the Herberton Historic Village was a perfect opportunity to see Year 1 History
curriculum in action, past and present, and to learn about how our families lived in the past. The Year 1s were treated to a lesson in the school room, a short stay in jail, a blacksmithing display and much more.
WALK SAFELY TO SCHOOL DAY
Active Kids are Healthy Kids. Thank you to all the parents and students who will be participating in the ‘Australian Walk Safely to School Day’ Friday 24th May. We ask all walkers to be at Platypus Park at 7.50am, for an 8.00am start. Our walk will begin by crossing Herberton Road, with a Police escort, and walking on to cross from the Information Centre to McDonalds. From there we walk to the ANZ Bank, over to the Carrington Hotel and down to the crossing in the middle of Main Street. We then walk to Jack Street, up to Mabel Street and along to the Mabel Street crossing. We will enter the school through the Presbytery entrance.
Prep celebrated their Term 2 class liturgy
Each year, Atherton Catholic Parish conducts parish-based sacramental programs. The programs are fully supported by the school. There will be two programs running this year. In Term 2 & 3 Confirmation and Eucharist will be prepared for by students in Year 4 (This will only include those students who joined the program last year who received the sacrament of Penance). The Confirmation is scheduled for June 7th and children will receive their First Eucharist on Sunday, August 18th. In Term 3 the sacrament of Penance (Reconciliation/Confession) will be prepared for by students in
Year 3. They will then be eligible to receive the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation next year.
More information regarding dates and procedures will be given out to families in the coming weeks.

P&F NEWS Spring Fair 2013 The St Joey’s P&F Association is looking for interested persons in the School or Parish community to help the 2013 Spring Fair committee. This is an opportunity to join several other committee members and be involved in creating the 2013 Spring Fair.
The P&F is looking for individuals to coordinate tasks such as sponsorship from local business, the giant raffle and stalls convenor. Support from another 2 or 3 persons would really make a difference! Contact me via email email@example.com or through the school office.
