Admissions St Matthew’s Catholic Primary School
At St. Matthew’s we encourage all members of our school community to walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. We talk about our life journey as our
‘Lifesong’ and we encourage each other to live out the message of Jesus through ‘the words we say and the things we do.’ We would love to welcome you into our school community!
If you’re unsure as to whether St. Matthew’s is the place for you and your child, please give us a call and we would be happy to chat with you about what we can offer and provide your family as part of our school community.
