Flinders Ranked Top on Sunshine Coast by Independent Education Website

Matthew Flinders Anglican College has topped the list as the best primary school on the Sunshine Coast with a perfect score of 100, according to independent education website, Better Education.

In a Sunshine Coast Daily article published on 9 May 2022, Flinders Head of Primary Trudi Edwards said she was “extremely proud” of her staff and their ability to prepare students for success.

“For us it validates the work of our fabulous teaching team and their dedication to implementing evidence-informed teaching strategies,” Ms Edwards said in the story.

“It is heartening to know that our students have the best start in their education through developing high levels of literacy and numeracy, all while developing the strong dispositions which enable them to set goals, learn from mistakes and have the resilience to try again.”
