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.

Latest News & Events

The 2014 Spring Fair attracted almost 400 people with a huge turn out of kids of all ages. Merriland Hall was once again buzzing with dance presentations for all class groups and it was pleasing to see so many parents and friends on the dance floor for the 'chicken dance'.

Many thanks to all those who attended to help make the evening the success it was. After many months of planning and hard work from the fete committee and the fantastic support of all those that provide help, it is very rewarding to see the event 'swing through its paces', and the enjoyment that the event creates for the hundreds that attended..

On behalf of the St Joey's P&F I would like to thank the fete committee; the many volunteers who provided their time and effort to set up, host and pack up the event; the teachers and school administrative staff who helped with many facets of the event; NQROC for their dance presentations and of course Craig Miller the DJ.

The financial success of the evening is still being tallied but estimates look very positive. The donations and support of our many sponsors (listed separately) makes a massive difference, so thanks to our sponsors! A key feature of the event was the drawing of the raffles. The junior MTB bike (donated by Northern Bikes Main Street Atherton) was won by Mr B Jue Sue of Atherton. Congratulations to the Jue Sue family. The Suzuki Alto car raffle (supported by Leon Trentin of Chano Trentin's - Atherton) was won by H Pezzelato of Kairi. Congratulations to the Pezzelato family. I would also like to acknowledge the tremendous effort of Rhiana and Roma in facilitating this car raffle which was a monumental undertaking. Rhiana and Roma went to great lengths to ensure that it was the tremendous success that it was.
Thanks, Andrew Millerd, President St Joseph's P&F.

The festival of All Saints' is a feast day celebrated to honour all the faithful saints and martyrs, known or unknown. This Catholic feast falls on November 1, followed by All Souls' Day on November 2. The feast of All Saints is a celebration of our Christian heritage and identity. While we celebrate and honour on All Saints' Day, those saintly women and men who have been canonized in our Church, we also celebrate our own sanctity as we strive to live our human lives out of the truth of our being in God; that we are children of God who bear God's image and likeness and are filled with the grace of God's own Spirit.


We will be holding our annual "Day for Daniel" on Friday 31st October. Flyers were sent out yesterday which contained information about the day. Please support this worthwhile fundraising event by wearing a red shirt and buying red treats. All funds will be sent to the Daniel Morcombe Foundation so they can continue the amazing work they do to keep children safe.

Many thanks to those students who wore crazy socks or casual clothes and donated a gold coin last Wednesday. Our final fundraising event will occur this Thursday with our "Pass the sock around" Competition. Please bring along your coins to see which class will have the heaviest sock. Our whole school mass on Friday at 9.30am will be celebrating Mission Month, World Teacher's Day and Day for Daniel. Please come along and join us!.
