Healthy Food and Drink Choices
The human person, though made of body and soul, is a unity… The human body shares in the dignity of the image of God: it is a human body precisely because it is animated by a spiritual soul, and it is the whole human person that is intended to become, in the body of Christ, a temple of the Spirit.

Homework is an integral part of a child’s education. It promotes a relationship that helps maintain communication between school and home on the child’s academic growth, and reinforces basic skills and concepts that have been taught in class.
View the Homework policy.

ICT Use By Students (K-2)
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is utilised in schools for learning, teaching and administration. The availability of such resources provides the opportunity for schools to help students develop their full potential.

Mobile Phone
Digital Devices, such as mobile phones, smart watches, iPads and iPods, are part of modern society and the school accepts that many students will possess these devices.  There are times when it may be genuinely appropriate and useful for students to have access to them.  However, ever-changing technology presents a number of challenges to the school environment.

School Fees: Setting and Collection
The Catholic Education Commission of Western Australia (CECWA) has a responsibility to make a Catholic education available to all Catholic students whose parents seek a Catholic education for them, insofar as this is possible, while embodying the Church’s preferential option for the poor and disadvantaged (Mandate page 50).
View the School Fees: Setting and Collection policy.

Student Enrolment
St Matthew’s school exists to further the mission of the Church. In Western Australia, the Mandate of the Bishops requires the Catholic Education Commission of WA to make Catholic school education available to all Catholic children, insofar as this is possible.
View the Student Enrolment policy.

Sun Protection
Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Research indicates that childhood and adolescent sun exposure is an important contributing factor to the development of skin cancer. As students are at school during times when UV radiation levels are highest, schools play a major role in minimising students’ UV exposure.
View the Sun Protection policy.

The purpose of this Volunteers’ policy is to set out the standards of behaviour expected of those who assist in the school and to detail the necessary procedures that will help solve issues as soon as possible so that a safe and harmonious school environment is maintained.
View the Volunteers’ policy.


St Matthew’s School has a deep and lasting concern to provide educational opportunities that enable each child to grow as God intends.
