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
YEAR 5 LEADERSHIP CAMP
The highlight of our first week back was the Year 5 Leadership Camp. It was a pleasure to spend time with our Year 5 students as they explored various aspects of leadership and the strengths and talents they bring to their roles as school leaders next year. With the assistance of Mrs Flynn and Mrs Shuttleworth, they are now preparing their presentations for consideration as School and House Leaders for 2019. I wish them all well in their preparations as we are very fortunate to have such a compassionate and motivated group of young people willing to offer their gifts in the service of others in our school community.
OFFICIAL OPENING OF NEW BUILDING
Please save the date for Thursday, 8 November. We will be hosting the official opening of our new school building which will be blessed by our Bishop, James Foley, at 10:00am. All school and parish members are invited to be present for the liturgy, blessing and formal opening which will be followed by a morning tea. Official invitations and RSVP details for catering purposes will be forwarded shortly.
FIREFIGHTERS' REMEMBRANCE DAY MEMORIAL SERVICE
On the 10th October at 10am, St Joseph’s Parish School was honoured to host the Far Northern Region Memorial Service for Firefighters’ Remembrance Day. It was an opportunity for us to recognise and honour the sacrifices of firefighters and the dedication they make every day to keep our families and communities safe. It was a meaningful service, especially when 52 students stood to represent those on the Honour Roll who had lost their lives.
