Learning & Teaching
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
― Benjamin Franklin
At St. Matthew’s School, the students are the centre of all learning and teaching. We recognise students as powerful and active learners and know that students learn best when they are engaged in their learning within a supportive and stimulating environment.
We promote learning opportunities that are relevant, dynamic, and focus on students’ individual needs and interests. We aim to ensure that our students will develop as life-long learners and reach their true potential.
We believe in developing our students to become independent learners and encourage students to be critical, creative and reflective thinkers. An inquiry approach to learning opportunities is provided so that students can construct new knowledge and understanding, adding to what they already know and believe.
Our school curriculum endeavours to equip students with the skills and strategies that enable them to learn how to learn, so they may cope successfully with our changing world and be active, global citizens.
