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

School commences on Tuesday 28 January. Prep will have a staggered start, with half the group commencing on Tuesday, half on Wednesday and the whole cohort will attend on Thursday.  Prep parents will receive separate advice about their start day.

Following discussions with the P&F, we will be offering an opportunity in the week before school commences for parents to drop off their children’s books and briefly meet their teachers. This will occur on Thursday, 23 January, between 9am and 10am.  The teachers are making themselves available during this time to meet and greet as they have other tasks to complete throughout the rest of the day.

Mrs Lee will be selling uniforms in the library on Wednesday, 22 January and Thursday, 23 January from 8:30am until 4:00pm.
