Team Up with Tremains
On Thursday the school received a cheque for $500 from Tremains Real Estate—our first payment under the ‘Team Up’ scheme. Thanks so much to Tremains.
It was lovely seeing so many whanau and friends at our Cross Country on Friday. The weather held off and the pupils ran so well. Thanks so much to our helpers and our
marshalls. Our runners have just returned from the Hastings District Primary Cross Country. Congratulations to Melody, Katie and Mark who all achieved a top 10 placing! Also, our year 8 boys came 3rd in their team event.
Our Term 4 School Church Service is on
October 19, at 4:30pm, the first Sunday after the holidays. It will be a special
St Francis Day Service for the blessing of the animals. All are invited to bring their pets (and any favourite toy animals) for a blessing.
There is also one for the general public on Sunday Oct 5th at 5pm.
St Matthew’s Parish Junior Choir is in need of more singers. There is a practise every second Friday afternoon and sing once a month on the fourth Sunday.
St Matthew's Primary School is an Anglican state integrated school, catering for students from Year 0 to 8, situated in the heart of Hastings. Since its inception in 1995 it has grown to become a small school of just over 130 pupils.
Our motto is "teach our children to use the right path, and when they are older they will remain on it" (Proverbs 22:6). We achieve this by offering high quality values and curriculum based education within a special character context.
We have an open door policy and we encourage all members of our community to be involved in educating our children.
St Matthews Primary School has students from around Hawkes Bay, as well as from around the world.
Our website is aimed at the whole community, students, parents and parish members, to make it an information site to find out what is happening in the school.
