St Matthew’s Primary School

Annual Statement 2022

It is with pleasure that I ask you to read this Annual Statement for 2022.

It has been another busy year with several students coming and going throughout the year. The roll closed at 158 at the end of 2022, and a starting roll of 140 for 2023. We predict to reach a roll of 157 this year.

The school continues to work extremely hard to support families as well, always seeking ways to support the relationship between home and school, especially as 2023 has also started with great disruption. Again the school and the school community managed and responded well to the Cyclone and the state of emergency. Whilst we were not directly impacted to a great extent we did have individuals who had close families members significantly affected.

The year saw the completion of the refurbishment of the main office area, with the work on the admin block continuing this year The school is looking forward to the continued improvements to the school environment with the ongoing support from the Board of Proprietors.

There was an increase in academic achievement across the whole school in all curriculum areas, however, there is still much work required to assist our learners, who do not have English as their first language, to continue supporting their success.
