Beyond the classroom, a plethora of sporting opportunities awaits at Matthew Flinders Anglican College.

Played competitively or recreationally, sport is integral to the co-curricular experience at Flinders – helping students grow in confidence through perseverance, resilience, teamwork and leadership, celebrating success and dealing with disappointment. Our students excel as teams and individuals, with championship titles in many sports, including Athletics, Netball, Cross Country, Rugby and AFL.
