The key purpose of the Parents and Friends Association (P&F) is to offer support to Matthew Flinders Anglican College through providing resources to best support the wellbeing and development of our students and staff. The P&F enjoys a mutually beneficial and respectful relationship with the College management team and Board. It offers a voice of representation for the parent body, and a vehicle for parent engagement with the school senior management team through monthly meetings. It offers an umbrella structure that supports a wide range of extracurricular activities in the form of the various supporter groups. This provides the children at Matthew Flinders Anglican College with opportunities in the sporting and musical fields.

All parents are welcome to attend P&F meetings and to participate in P&F activities. The Association conducts several fundraising events each year to benefit both current and future students. A number of social events are also scheduled to promote the inclusive and supportive nature of the Flinders community.

Parents are encouraged to join the Parents and Friends group on myFlinders to receive P&F communication.

Many College parents generously donate their time to help run activities and sporting groups. If you child is interested in any of the below groups, please contact their President for further details.
