Matthew Flinders Anglican College was founded in 1990. Our College is a company limited by guarantee.

The Board of Directors is primarily accountable to the company and is responsible for the overall strategy, governance and performance of its business affairs. The Constitution of the Company links this responsibility to the wider College community and to the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane.

The Board of Directors seeks to implement Excellence in Governance as a key organisational goal.

The premise of such a goal is that for our College to achieve excellence in its educational, Christian and community mission, the governing body must be highly strategic and effective in its leadership, planning and oversight functions.

Our College’s values – of explicit Christian principles: Courage, Respect, Integrity and Compassion – present touchstones for which all policies, strategies, actions and behaviour within the organisation will be consistent.

Sound day-to-day management and performance of our College are the responsibility of the Principal.

The Board of Directors encompass a range of skills and attributes required for our College to achieve its goals.

Board of Directors and Committees

The risks and challenges of the governance role of independent school boards reflect those of the corporate world. The Board of Directors has between its members a broad range of interests, talents and experience. The Board seeks to implement excellence in governance as a key organisational goal by exercising principles of rigour, transparency and accountability.

The premise of such a goal is that for our College to achieve excellence in its educational, Christian and community mission, the governing body must be highly strategic and effective in its leadership, planning and oversight functions. The Board governs the organisation in a manner in which it actively facilitates achievement of our College’s goals and vision.

The Constitution of the Company links this responsibility to the wider College community, and also to the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane.

The Principal is an ex-officio member of the Board of Directors to which he reports regularly. He enjoys total operational autonomy, but also has a high level of accountability. The Director of Business and Operations is responsible for supporting the Chairman and the Board of Directors in their role of governing the affairs of the College.

The Board operates a number of standing committees, including Audit and Governance, Strategy and Risk, and Buildings and Grounds. The role of each of these committees is to recommend action to the Board of Directors on the basis of considered analysis of information relevant to its specified area of expertise, consistent with routine function under its Terms of Reference or on specific referral from the Board of Directors. All committees report regularly to the Board.
