SMCS Mudgee logo St  Matthews  Secondary  School - Building Update 

At the end of last year, we received confirmation that the  State Significant Development Application (SSDA) for our  new secondary campus had been approved. This is wonderful news for our community and means that we are now very close to commencing construction.

I am pleased to be able to let you know that the construction of St Matthews Catholic School Secondary Campus is due to commence in mid-March this year and the aim is for the project to be completed for the beginning of the new school year in 2023. Once completed, the new secondary campus will cater for up to 680 students from Years 7 to 12.

The Catholic Diocese of Bathurst is fully funding the project and has partnered with North Construction and Building to build the new campus. Designed by Alleanza Architecture, the new spaces will provide a flexible and unique learning environment. Local contractors will be utilised throughout the building project wherever possible.

We will be providing you with regular updates throughout the construction process, so keep an eye on our newsletters, social media and school website for more information.


God Bless

NEW NATIONAL CHURCH PROTOCOL FOR RESPONDING TO SEXUAL ABUSE

Adopted by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference in November 2020, a new National Response Protocol for responding to contemporary and historical concerns and allegations of child sexual abuse will be implemented from Monday, February 1. The protocol is the results of two years of consultation within and beyond the Church, and draws on wisdom from the Royal Commission, governments, universities and the Catholic Church in other countries. 

 The National Response Protocol can be accessed via the Bishops Conference website at:
