Investing in our teachers
At Flinders, we are committed to developing an accomplished, well-resourced and inspirational staff, committed to the students in their care and imbued with a strong ethos of service, professional learning and ethical responsibility.
What’s more, our College recognises that our staff play an important role in providing quality education to our students and in nurturing a caring school culture.
Flinders staff are supported in their wellbeing and professional development with access to both internal and external professional development opportunities, including mentoring, coaching and tailored support as required.
Masterplan for innovative learning spaces
The facilities at Flinders are exemplary, including our state-of-the-art 600-seat Performance Centre, our exciting Digital Zone, an impressive range of sporting facilities, including the Flinders Aquatic Academy, and the Flinders Farm.
In 2019, the College ‘turned earth’ on its long-term Flinders Masterplan. The project will deliver innovative and industry-leading learning spaces and facilities to enhance the teaching and learning at Flinders.
The Masterplan projects also enhance our students’ success and our teachers’ professional growth and development.
The new Year 7 Precinct launched in 2020, and the new Flagship Centre for our Years 5 and 6 students opened in January 2021. The innovative new Wonderarium learning resource centre is also due to open in Term 4, 2021 in the Primary School.
Technology and connections
The College is driven by an Apple IT environment with strong infrastructure and technology support to enable high quality student learning and staff collaboration, as well as encourage parent and community engagement.
Whilst independently incorporated, the College is affiliated with the Anglican Diocese Of Brisbane. We welcome students, parents and staff from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Tolerance, respect and compassion for others is modelled across all areas of our College.
