Diocese of Toowoomba Catholic Schools


New Industrial, arts and sports complex at Assumption College, Warwick.

With multi-million-dollar new facilities and enrolments growing, St Mary’s School and Assumption College in Warwick are flourishing.

Having been mainstays of the education landscape for over 145 years, with alumni that include Sir William Webb and Wayne Bennett both schools are well known in their local community – and not just for their longevity.

Simon Fleming, principal of Assumption College said, “Over the last 3 years, the College has invested over $8 million in improving and expanding our facilities and this has led to broadening our curriculum offerings to students.  We have just completed the next phase of our facilities upgrades with a new administration block, staffrooms and industrial, arts and sports complex.  This means we can open the doors to more students and there are some very exciting specialist job opportunities that come with that.”

For St Mary’s, the buildings are going up quickly to enable the school to come together on one campus.

“With fifteen fresh, new classrooms, outdoor learning spaces, a multipurpose area, and a covered lunch area currently under construction, our school is a brighter and more vibrant hive of activity than ever before,” said Emma Timmins, principal of St Mary’s.

“This is such a momentous time for our community and a great time to be a member of the St Mary’s team. With so many new opportunities to expand what we offer to our students and for teachers and our other staff to do this in state-of-the-art facilities; Warwick is a great place to be.”

Being only an hour from Toowoomba and two hours from Brisbane, and with lots of investment in the local economy, both schools’ staff believe they have the best of everything living in Warwick.

“Having come to Warwick from Brisbane, my career options have expanded and my after work and weekend time is filled with local music, social events, motor sports at Morgan Park, walks in the nearby National parks and visiting the many new eateries that are popping up all the time,” said Chris Cook, teacher at Assumption College.
