Sport Activities at St Matthew’s Catholic Primary School
At St. Matthew’s we find sport to be one of the most rewarding subjects outside of the classroom, children can learn vital team working skills will playing sports with a team. They learn fantastic communication skills too when they participate in team discussions.
We are partnered with both the Gateshead School Sports Partnership and Active Northumberland, who provide coaching to our school when needed to assist our teachers in learning the ins and outs of new sports ranging from Fencing to Yoga! The coaches are well versed in their sport and are able to teach with incredible knowledge.
Both partnerships also offer a multitude of competitions across the year in various sports which are children are also delighted to attend and compete at when a team can be assembled. We have had fantastic success throughout the years at different events, from cross country to swimming galas.
Keep your eyes peeled throughout the year on the newsletter for any upcoming sporting events and/or coaching events!
