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.

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.

Thank you to those parents who have been very proactive in making their applications for Prep enrolments in 2020. I have already conducted a number of enrolment interviews. I will be making offers of placement after the Easter holidays, so please contact the office for an enrolment pack or complete an online application through the school’s website if you have a child commencing in Prep next year.


Last Thursday the 10-12 Years old Cross Country was held. Despite the hot weather, the participation was phenomenal. A big congratulations to all of those who placed. You will be heading to Yungaburra in May for the Tablelands 10- 19 Years old Cross Country.

March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day, which has been officially recognised by the United Nations since 2012. On this day, people all around the world celebrate the lives and achievements of people with Down Syndrome, creating a global voice, advocating for the rights, inclusion and wellbeing of people with Down syndrome. We want to get people talking about WDSD on 21 March. We can do this if we all wear socks… We will be holding a free dress dayand the children are asked to wear their most colourful socks and bring a gold coin donation.
