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.

On Friday of last week Year 5 led us in a very moving ANZAC Day Liturgy. We were privileged to have three special guests, Mr John Telfer - Retired Royal Australian Air Force Sergeant, Margaret Trahair - Ex-Women’s Royal Australian Army Corps Sergeant and Mr Michael Forde - Ex - Royal Australian Army Corps Private.
Mr John Telfer addressed the students, emphasising some stories demonstrating the bravery and hardships shown in war. Last week Mr John Telfer launched his incredible book, 'ANZAC Spirit of the Southern Downs'. He describes it as 'a collection of stories of the men and women who honoured the ANZAC legend'. There are limited copies available for $25. Please see Mrs Young if you would like a copy. All proceeds go to the RSL. Congratulations to Patrick who won a signed copy for answering the question - What was the name of Simpson's donkey? (Duffy)
We are so proud on Sunday that nearly half of our students marched in the ANZAC Day Parade. Thank you to the parents who were able to support this.
I am hoping to have some ‘round table discussions’ with parents about engagement with the school to support student learning. I will be hosting 3 opportunities to begin with on 14th, 28th May and 11th June at 9am. If you would like to be involved, please contact the office and register your interest. Parent voice is so important and this is a wonderful opportunity for you to have an opportunity to speak about parent engagement.
We understand that parents can contribute to school communities in many different ways and for some here they are a part of the P&F or the School Board. Did you know that as parents you are all members of the P&F? Traditional P&F’s have had the focus on raising money and supporting the school in what they need, which is amazing, but we are hoping to move away from this model and incorporate more parents in different ways. With support from Catholic School Parents Qld, we hope to be presented information on what types of models there are and what would suit our parents and school context. Bernadette Kay from CSPQ will be visiting Assumption College on Monday 10th May at 6pm to present to both schools this information and I would like to open this invitation to any parent from our school to attend and participate in ‘what we want for our school in the future?’.
