At Matthew Flinders Anglican College we believe in ensuring our students step into the future as well-rounded individuals. To support this belief we offer a wide range of co-curricular activities that provide opportunities for all students to develop existing or new interests and to cultivate critical team work and leadership abilities.
Sport, whether played in a competitive or recreational setting, is an important part of our drive to ensure students are equipped with the skills of perseverance, hard work, celebrating successes and coping with disappointments.
Aside from the obvious physical and health benefits that sport brings, there are also wide-reaching advantages for cognitive development, personal wellbeing and social integration, so there is a definite overall emphasis both on participation and the realisation of potential.
Our physical education program offers students the chance to absorb the aspects needed for their physical literacy which, studies show, is linked to a greater likelihood of extended participation as well as the positive attitude and behaviours associated with being physically active.
Students who excel at individual sports also have the opportunity to extend their skills set in a competitive environment thanks to the expert coaching on offer and the College’s participation in leagues and events at local, state and national level.
The school has produced a host of world champions, Australian representatives, Commonwealth Games and Olympic medallists. It is a history we are proud of and one we continually seek to better.
