Congratulations to our Honour Certificate recipients. We are all very proud of you.
The Year 1 and 2 classes joined together to complete a phonics & QR code game. We worked together to scan QR codes, sound out words and match the pictures. We enjoyed working with our friends from Year 2 and using the iPads to learn about letters!

2020 Sunsmart Country Schools’ Tennis Classic
This is an Interschool team event held annually within all zones across Western Australia – metro and country. It is a round robin format. This year we will be sending 20 Year 5 and 6 students to compete. Our zone will be conducting its tournament on Wednesday 4th March, commencing at 9am. It will be held at Narrogin Tennis Club. I am sure they will all display wonderful sportsmanship and represent St Matthew’s with pride.
Year 5 MathsPathway
The Year 5’s have been exploring a new interactive, student-centred program called MathsPathway. The program specifically targets a student’s learning needs and develops an individualized learning program for that student. At any time, a student will be working on a variety of mathematical concepts and extending his/her learning based on needs. The program is delivered online through the school’s digital devices; students complete exercises in their Mathematics exercise books and receive explicit mini lessons delivered by the teacher to small groups.
