Flinders Crow’s Nest

Connecting with our Community for Wellbeing During COVID-19
We will miss seeing one another and chatting at the school gate, the College cafe or the sports sideline but we can still “look out” for one another through the online environment. The Flinders Crow’s Nest is a regular short video segment of holistic wellbeing messages, activities and ideas to help keep our Flinders families happy and healthy. We hope you enjoy the view from the crow’s nest until we can all see one another again, face to face.
