Welcome to our website.....
Welcome to St Mary's Catholic Primary School Warwick, one of Warwick's finest primary schools. Under the umbrella of the Toowoomba Diocesan Catholic Education Office, we are a Parish School, part of the St Mary's Parish, Warwick. Our Parish Priest, Fr Franco Filipetto, supports the pastoral role of the school.
The school offers a professional and dedicated staff who endeavour to deliver a curriculum which is both exciting and innovative. We have a very real commitment to the basics of literacy and numeracy. We compliment this by also addressing other key areas of learning to provide a wonderful all-round education for the children in our care.
St Mary's School is proud of its history of providing high quality education in an environment of the Catholic tradition. Our school is committed to meeting the challenges of education today and in the future in order to provide students with the skills necessary to progress further along the life-long journey of education and learning.

On Friday 24th October, all children are encouraged to come to school in their rodeo clothes. They may come as cowboys, cowgirls, bull fighters or even rodeo clowns.
All children have received a rodeo colouring in sheet this week. If they would like to be included in the colouring competition, entries will need to be returned to school by Wednesday 22nd October for judging on Friday 24th October. The Mystery Judge is very excited.
MINI VINNIES SWEET STALL
The Mini Vinnies team has been working on increasing awareness for National Anti-Poverty Week which is from the 12th - 18th October.
On Friday the 17th October the Mini Vinnies team, supported by year 7 & year 6 students, will be holding a sweet stall. The Sweet Stall will be after the Nudgee College Ensemble Concert so that the Lower Campus children can buy a sweet before they leave the campus. All Sweets will be $1.00.
ANNUAL RETREATS FOR OUR SENIOR STUDENTS
We are pleased to advised that our Year 6 students and Year 7 students will participate in their annual retreats on Monday 17 November (Year 6) and Tuesday 18 November (Year 7), 2014. These beautiful spirituality days will be held at the MacKillop Centre and facilitated by Mrs Sharon Collins (Catholic Education Officer – Faith and Life).
The retreat days for the Years 6 and 7 cohorts will embrace the same theme for 2014, given that for both classes, this is their final year of primary schooling. This day-long retreat, entitled, “Pentecost People: Moving Ahead with Spirit” is a wonderful opportunity for students to reflect on their journey through primary school and to ‘unpack’ and address the mixed emotions they may be feeling and experiencing at this time. As the apostles had to prepare themselves for a life without Jesus in the earthly context, students will be led through a series of fun and practical activities, music and sharing students that will (a) reflect on their journey together throughout their primary years, and (b) how these experiences have prepared them for life beyond primary school. What have I learnt? What gifts have I received? What do I take with me? What do I leave behind? How do I move ahead with the St Mary’s spirit? We ask all families to keep our senior students in your prayers during this important final term of primary schooling at St Mary’s.
This year's date for the Cultural Concert has been changed to Monday 1st December (Last week of Term 4), in order to lessen the impact of the School Balls.
The format has also been amended. This year all students who play musical instruments are encouraged to contact Mrs Erin Hilton (Music Teacher) if they would like to present an item at the Concert. There will be individual special performances, as well as Junior Choir and Senior Choir presentations. As it is so close to Christmas, all children from Prep – Year 7 are encouraged to come along with their family and join in 'en masse' groups to sing various Christmas Carols throughout the evening.
