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

It was great to see our school represented so well at the Anzac Day Memorial on Monday 25th April.

This month students will receive an invitation to participate in the 2016 Premier's Reading Challenge. Paperwork will be sent home with each child in the near future. Students in Prep to Year 2 will participate as a class, but students are more than welcome, and encouraged, to enter their own sheet with the reading that they do at home. I encourage all students to participate. Each child that reads the designated amount of books for their grade level will receive a signed certificate from the Premier of Queensland.

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.

Thank you to those students and teachers who visited the Anzac Mini Museum and saw the memorabilia from the Australian War Memorial. It was great for the students to be able to view these items locally.
