Welcome from the Principal
Welcome to the Matthew Flinders Anglican College website.
It is a privilege to be the fourth Principal of Matthew Flinders Anglican College. As one of the pre-eminent schools in Queensland, we are proud to provide excellence in education in a co-educational setting.
All fine schools look to stimulate the heart and soul, the body and mind. One of the very best things about Flinders is the positive climate for learning present throughout the College. Students are at the heart of our work and the breadth and depth of the involvement of Flinders students is extraordinary. The staff here are professional and dedicated; the students are the beneficiaries of their shared commitment to the education of those in their care.
Set on a beautifully treed and landscaped campus approximately 10 minutes’ drive from the coastal beaches, Flinders is well-known for its state-of-the-art Performance Centre, the unique and magical Early Learning Centre and the superb flood-lit sports ovals, among other impressive facilities, such as the brand new Aquatic Centre. Our students benefit from having all of our facilities on-site and thus readily accessible, not only during school hours but also beyond the school day via our extensive co-curricular program.
I am proud of the College and I want Flinders students to be proud too: proud of the community of which they are part; proud of their own and the College’s collective achievements and proud of the values they take with them when they leave, developed and nurtured in an environment of safety, happiness and mutual respect.
There is so much to see and enjoy at Matthew Flinders Anglican College – I invite you to visit and experience it for yourself.
With every good wish,
Stuart G Meade
