St Matthew's provides a range of specialist activities for our students to enjoy:
All children participate in the Physical Education Program at the school. If parents do not wish their child to participate in a particular activity for medical reasons written notification is required. The Physical Education Program aims at introducing the children to skills for games, dance, fitness and swimming. The children in the middle and infant classes concentrate on acquiring and developing a wide range of skills which can later be employed in specific sports, games and organised physical activity. Children in the upper school compete on a regular basis in team sports against other schools.
All students compete in athletics competition and in cross-country.
Music details coming soon.
The Spanish program is offered to students in Years 5 & 6. Students are engaged in two lessons, totalling approximately one and a half hours per week.
The program consists of a combination of Spanish language and culture. The focus is on communication, so lessons are based on speaking and listening skills, as well as reading and writing, while becoming aware of the customs, traditions and celebrations of the people in some of the 20 or so countries around the world where Spanish is the official language.
