ST MARY'S School students will be watching the telly with bated breath for past student and Warwick Paralympian Carlee Beattie when she lines up to compete in her long jump and 100m events next week.

The students have hung up a sign of support in the school grounds for all the St Mary's community to see.

At yesterday's assembly deputy principal Anne Standing asked the students if they knew what the Paralympics were all about.

"I was pleased that so many of them knew about it," she said.

Mrs Standing said Carlee was a model student and excelled in sport throughout her time at the school.

"She was always positive and happy," she said.

"She was always willing to have a go at whatever.

"Nothing ever seemed to faze her and she never used her disability as an excuse."

Mrs Standing said Carlee deserved to win a medal.

"After all the years of training and hard work I think she is deserving of a medal," she said.

"She has the determination and I believe she can win."

Mrs Standing said the whole school was wishing the athlete luck.

The champion also attended Assumption College and Warwick State High School.
