St Joseph's is a caring, innovative, co-educational, multicultural and inner-city school where everyone is welcome and everyone matters. Established in 1927 by the Sisters of Mercy, St Joseph's has proudly served the Cairns region for over 80 years.
Our goal is to enable students to develop the skills they will need to be successful in life. We are a school that nurtures healthy spirits, minds and bodies. Our community has claimed the values of Learning, Love, Community and Respect, as Jesus showed, and aims to live these out each day.
The school currently has an enrolment of around 410 students and offers a Catholic Education for students from Prep to year 7.
St Joseph's is a registered provider for overseas students and so we welcome students from all over the world..
My name is Gavin Rick and I am the Principal at St Joseph's School and I am excited to be a part of the community here. With over 20 years experience in Catholic Education, I have a passion for building a positive school culture where children feel safe and happy and can excel and come to know their place in the world. I invite you to contact the school if you wish to find out more about what we have to offer.
