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.

Latest News & Events

The official opening of our new buildings was held on Thursday. The liturgy and blessing were led by our Bishop, James Foley. Senator James McGrath and Craig Crawford, the Queensland Minister for Fire and Emergency Services officially declared the buildings open. We were also pleased to welcome our new parish priest, Fr Michael Szymanski, along with Fr Joby Jose and Fr Greg Moses to the service. Catholic Education Services, Cairns was also well represented with our Executive Director Bill Dixon and Assistant Executive Director, Ian Davis with several other colleagues in attendance. We were pleased that our school’s former principal, Deacon Michael Lindsay was available to act as MC for the ceremony. Thank you to Mrs Born, Mrs MacCallum and Mrs Karla Adams-Jones from Catholic Education Services for all their work in organising the event with such short notice. We also thank the Atherton Parish Catholic Ladies for catering a delicious assortment of foods for our distinguished guests. We are proud of our students for the respectful way they engaged with the speakers during the ceremony.
