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.
LENTEN RECONCILIATION LITURGY
Throughout Lent we have the traditional Catholic practices of praying, fasting, and almsgiving. So, we pray more than usual, or we pray with different emphases. We eat smaller or fewer meals or give up a favourite food or drink group. We give more of our resources or give them specifically to special works of mercy during Lent.
During Lent we are also called to personal penance. There will be a Reconciliation Liturgy next Thursday 22nd March at 2pm in the MacKillop Centre. The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered to those students who have celebrated their First Reconciliation.
At St Mary's we will:
This term the Mini Vinnies students have decided to raffle an Easter basket. We hope to use the money raised to support a CARITAS Mission in the Philippines. St Mary’s Teacher-Librarian, Helen Gillam, is travelling to this mission in April and will be assisting with the set-up of borrowing procedures (and new books). The school name is Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Integrated School in Cordova on the Philippine island of Cebu. Thank you to the Mini Vinnies students who have brought in all these goodies for an Easter raffle. Tickets will go on sale for $1 next Tuesday at both campuses and be drawn on Holy Thursday in time for Easter. Please send money in a clearly marked envelope with child’s name, class, Easter Raffle Ticket Money and amount enclosed.
CARITAS - PROJECT COMPASSION
Each year, our school supports Caritas Australia’s Project Compassion which helps pursue justice and help those suffering from poverty and disadvantage in more than 35 countries around the world. Each week during Lent, the children will focus on the story of a person in a particular country which will be supported this year.
Each class has a Project Compassion box and we thank those families who have supported this already.
