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.

STUDENT PORTFOLIOS & REPORT CARDS
Next week your child’s Semester One Report Card and Student Portfolio will be sent home. The Student Portfolio is now an important part of St Mary’s Assessment and Reporting process and will be used in conjunction with Semester 1 and Semester 2 Plain English Reports and Parent/Teacher Interviews throughout the school year.
The new Student Portfolio contains a variety of Work Samples, Assessment Experiences, Testing and other teacher chosen elements from all Key Learning Areas of the Australian Curriculum. See the newsletter for more on this subject.
REPORT CARD GRADE INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
We wish to advise that the new wording for the A to E grades (and the AP to BA grades for Prep) on your child’s report card has been delayed. Parents would recall that this new wording was included in last week’s newsletter. The installation of these changes to the Diocesan Learning Profile to align the report cards with the new assessing and reporting system used for the Australian Curriculum courses (English, Mathematics and Science introduced in 2012, and History and Geography introduced this year) will not occur now until the holiday period. The release was complete and ready to go, but the Diocese was concerned about a small risk of instability in the DLP that might be caused by this change. Hopefully, the changes will occur at a diocesan level in readiness for the Semester 2 reporting period.
ST MARY'S ATHLETICS CARNIVAL
St Mary’s Athletics will be held over two days. On Monday June 17th, all field events i.e. shot put, discus, high jump and long jump and 800m events will be held for all children age 9 – 13 years i.e. children born in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 or 2004.
Every child will participate in every event. We believe it is important for all children to have the opportunity for full participation.
On Thursday June 20th, track events will be held for all children. Children born from 2000 – 2004 will compete in 200m. Every child in the School i.e. Prep – Year 7 will compete in sprints, relays, ball games and novelty events.
Please note: On both days i.e. Monday June 17th, children born 2000 – 2004 and Thursday June 20th, ALL children are to go directly to Hamilton Oval by 8.15am for the program to commence at 8.30am. Children are then to be collected from Hamilton Oval at 3.00pm. Bus children will be met at Warwick High School in the morning and walked to meet the bus in the afternoon on both days.
TUCKSHOP ON MONDAY 17TH & THURSDAY 20TH JUNE
Tuckshop will be available at school as normal from St Mary’s Tuckshop for the Lower Campus students not going to the Monday Athletics Carnival at Hamilton Oval.
Children aged 9 years and onwards will be able to purchase tuckshop at Hamilton Oval on Monday 17th June during the lunch breaks.
On Thursday 20th June, all children will be at the Athletics Carnival and able to purchase tuckshop at Hamilton Oval. This canteen is provided by Warwick State High School.
Last Sunday, many children from this year’s Sacramental Programme received communion for the first time and entered into full communion with the Catholic Christian tradition. We congratulate them as they engage in this important phase of their faith journey. We pray that they may grow ever closer to Jesus and the Christian community. This Sunday the remainder of the Sacramental group will make their First Communion.
