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.

SCHOOL MUSICAL - PETER PAN
No doubt everyone will enjoy the presentation of the school musical, Peter Pan on Thursday night 27th August and Friday night 28th August. Much time, effort and energy from staff, students and parents has made this possible. I would especially like to offer special thanks to Mrs Erin Hilton who has been ably assisted by Mrs Standing, Mrs Lawson and Ms Matthews in putting this altogether. And of course, it wouldn't be possible without the talents of our students (and their parents who have become costume designers, hair dressers, make-up artists and so much more!!!). We are truly blessed.
VISIT BY BRUCE AND DENISE MORCOMBE
On Tuesday of this week, the whole school was introduced to Bruce and Denise Morcombe. Bruce and Denise shared their very special message of child safety to all students from Prep to Year 6. The key words for the children were: Recognise React Report
All classes will now continue with this important information in class with all year levels undertaking the Daniel Morcombe program as part of our Health learning area. Bruce and Denise emphasised to the students the importance of recognising our bodies' messages when we feel that something is not quite right. If something is not right, we react by either running away or standing up to the situation. Bruce and Denise encouraged the children to say, "Stop! My body is my own!" and then report the situation to one of five special people we trust.
Over the next few weeks, as the Daniel Morcombe program is taught in the classes, special messages will come home. Parents are asked to encourage and ask more questions in the continued hope that all of our children stay safe.
More information on keeping children safe can be found at
