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 complement 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.

MOTHER’S DAY STALL
Tuesday 3rd of May
Upper & Lower Campus
This year, the St. Mary’s P&F Association will again be running a Mother’s Day Stall. The stall will be held on Tuesday, 3rd May for both the Upper and Lower Campuses.
The stall will be bursting with lots of great gifts that Mum will just LOVE! There will be a variety of gifts priced at $3, $4 and $5. The stall is a great way for your child to select and purchase a surprise gift for their Mum. All profits from the stall will support the P & F projects for this year. As the gifts come unwrapped, the children will be provided with a brown paper bag. These can then be decorated for Mum on Mother’s Day
If you would like your child/children to purchase gifts from the stall, please send money along with your child in an envelope with your child’s name, class and dollar amount on the front.
Envelopes can be brought to your child’s teacher or the school office from Friday 29th April. The students will be able to purchase ONE gift on the Tuesday. Additional gifts will be available for purchase at a specified time at the Lower and Upper Campuses on Friday, 6th May. Money for purchases on the Friday must be brought in on Friday 6th May.
Thank you to the many families, staff and children who supported the Warwick community ANZAC march on Monday of this week. It was truly inspiring to see so many pay their respects to those who have sacrificed so much. Australia is a great nation with many people committed to peace and harmony. In the speeches made at the commemorative service on Monday, respect for all servicemen and women (and animals) was highlighted, remembering all of the confrontations Australians have gone to battle in, in the name of freedom and peace.
READING SUPER SIX FOCUS: Visualising
Classes will continue to focus on the Super Six Strategy of Visualising.
Good readers put together everything they have learned to understand what they read.
Learners create a mental image from a text read/viewed/heard. Visualising brings the text to life, engages the imagination and uses all of the senses.
What are the pictures you have in your head as you read/view/listen to this text?
Can you describe the picture or image you made while you read/heard that part?
How did the pictures in your head help you to understand the text?
Family Mass – Saturday 30th April
Please join us for the Parish's next Family Mass on 30th April at the 6:00pm Saturday Mass. This is a great community celebration with readings and songs chosen with children in mind.
