OUR TEAM

"Team is always the way forward," that's our staff motto at Saint Matthew.  

Team is always defined by the task we are trying to accomplish, so our staff team is defined by our Mission and Vision.  

Our staff core values are: 1) servant-hearted; 2) positive attitude; and 3) being flexible.
