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.
Sunday, 2nd July is Aboriginal Sunday. The day begins NAIDOC Week. The theme for NAIDOC this year is, “Anyone who welcomes you, welcomes me.”
Prayer of the Aboriginal People: Father of all, You gave us the Dreaming; You have spoken to us through our beliefs; You then made your love clear to us in the person of Jesus. We thank you for your care. You own us, you are our hope. Make us strong as we face the problems of change. We ask you to help the people of Australia to listen to us and respect our culture. Make the knowledge of you grow strong in all people, so that you can be at home in us and we can make a home for everyone in our land. Amen (Prepared by Aboriginal people for Pope John Paul IIs visit to Alice Springs in 1986).
On the first Friday back in Term 3, 14th July, St Mary’s will be holding a NAIDOC Liturgy in the MacKillop Centre at the Upper Campus, commencing at 11:45am. The Liturgy will be led by the Year 2 students. All students will be involved in rotations from 9:30 to add meaning to the Liturgy. All Parents, Caregivers and friends are most welcome to attend.
Congratulations to the children from St Mary’s School who received the Sacrament of Confirmation last Wednesday.
PREP ENROLMENTS FOR 2018
We are currently accepting applications for Prep enrolments for the 2018 school year. It is vital that all families considering a placement for their child in Prep for 2018 contact the school office with their details (child’s name and date of birth, parents name, address and contact phone number). Interviews with the Principal will be held early in Term 3. Anticipated enrolment numbers for Prep are an integral part of the prediction for the staffing allocation for the whole of St Mary’s School for 2018. Parents/caregivers are reminded that enrolment at St Mary’s Kindy and current family enrolment does not automatically mean enrolment in Prep. Each Prep child and his/her family (2018) must have participated in the enrolment process:
Completion and return of the Application for Enrolment
Meeting with the Principal
Received an offer of a placement
Accepted the offer of placement
(where possible) Participate in designated Open Morning/s for 2018 Prep children
Each family’s support of this process is greatly appreciated. If members of our school community are aware of other families seeking enrolment at St Mary’s School Warwick, please encourage them to make contact with the school office for an enrolment package.
Please refer to our latest newsletter for more great photos and full details of Age Champions etc.
