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.

Last Friday 21st November a Mini Marathon was held on the school oval to raise money for The Cancer Council. Thank you for the terrific support from the children, families and staff. The total amount raised was $655.00, which is twice as much as was raised last year. Well done and many thanks everyone for your support of such a worthy cause.

Bring in a non-perishable food item to donate to the Christmas Hamper, located in the front office. Then choose a decoration from the Jesse Tree to take home.

Thank you to the many families who have contributed to the Christmas Hamper so far. Pictured is Gemma selecting her decoration from the Jesse Tree. Add a little hope, comfort and joy for families this Christmas!





Next Thursday, 4th December we will be holding the last whole school mass for 2014. This will be the final opportunity for the school community to gather and celebrate all of the fantastic things that have happened throughout the year before we head into the Christmas holidays. The mass will also be an opportunity to bid farewell to families leaving the school and to present Certificates of Completion to our Year 6 & 7 students. Mass will begin at 10:00am. All are warmly invited to join us for this celebration.

A farewell mass for the Year 6 & 7 children completing their primary education will be held on Monday, 1st December at 6pm. Everyone is welcome to attend the mass. A dinner for students, their parents and staff will follow.
