Our School

St Matthew’s is a co-educational, Catholic School for all, known for our strong community spirit. We achieve excellent results using student-centred approaches to learning, and we come to know each of our students as individuals. 

As well as a nurturing, dynamic and engaging environment where each child is individually acknowledged and encouraged to grow spiritually, academically, socially and emotionally, we also offer:

  • An innovative curriculum, which draws on current educational theory and practice while also being tailored to meet individual student needs.
  • Tools that enable students to integrate digital technology into all subject areas - laptops, iPads and Chromebooks
  • Interactive whiteboards in all classrooms, including the library and music room
  • A rigorous Year Six Leadership Program, in which all the students learn about leadership and take on extra responsibilities in leading the school
  • A comprehensive and highly effective Student Welfare and Management Policy
  • Explicitly taught values and social/emotional learning (SEL), learnt and practised in context
  • A comprehensive creative arts program
  • A gymnastics and dance program conducted by specialist instructors in alternate years
  • Participation in the Rostrum Public Speaking competition for Year 5 and 6 students
  • Two school concerts each year, one for junior students and one for senior students
  • An all-encompassing sporting program which involves participation in swimming, athletics and cross-country carnivals for the students
  • Well-maintained and engaging play spaces including a newly developed sensory garden
  • Weekly lunch time gardening, chess, robotics, arts and games clubs each week

In truth and love, we listen, learn and lead.
