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

It has been a busy time at school with class masses and liturgies.  Many thanks to the teachers for helping the students prepare for these special celebrations.  Due to Covid restrictions, some liturgies have had to be recorded and sent out to families.  I thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.

Our Prep students celebrated their Friendship liturgy in the church on Wednesday morning.  It was wonderful to see how much they have grown in confidence and ability to read, sing, and do actions.  It was a lovely liturgy.  Thanks to the parents and grandparents who were able to share the liturgy with us and follow our social distancing requirements.


This term, we commence the process of planning for class allocations and school staffing for 2021.  This process is highly driven by student numbers and it is important that we have a clear indication of our needs for next year.  If you have a student for Prep next year and have not completed an enrolment application, could you please attend to this as a matter of urgency to avoid being waitlisted.  Similarly, if you are aware of new families considering enrolment at St Joseph's next year for Prep or any other year level, could you please encourage them to make enrolment enquiries as soon as possible.
