Remote Learning During COVID-19

Despite the challenges of COVID-19, Matthew Flinders Anglican College will continue to provide students with a quality education and a positive climate for excellence in learning.

Flinders will continue its remote learning model in Term 2, 2020 as the majority of students across Australia learn from home to ensure strict social distancing measures are observed.

It is heart-warming to observe our College community working together in this new remote learning environment so that our students continue to feel supported, guided and challenged to learn to their potential.

TERM 2 REMOTE LEARNING AT FLINDERS

Flinders parents and students have access to the College’s remote learning model via the custom-designed MyFlinders portal.

The MyFlinders portal provides on-going support with Updates, How-To Guides, Resources and dedicated Primary School and Secondary School learning hubs.

TEACHER UPSKILLING DURING COVID-19

Matthew Flinders Anglican College prides itself on its proactive approach to online learning and IT solutions in the typical school environment.

Classroom learning involves the integration of digital tools and platforms to enhance learning. As a result, the College is well prepared for this new remote learning landscape where students must learn remotely for the foreseeable future.

Flinders’ teaching staff is constantly upskilling to gain the confidence to deliver remote learning. Our staff team is highly capable, and responding with grace and positivity to these urgent professional development opportunities as they evolve.

PASTORAL CARE FOR HEALTH AND WELLBEING

While student learning and academic enrichment is a major focus at Flinders, so too is the health and wellbeing of our students and all Flinders families, especially during COVID-19.

The College supports our community in a myriad of ways, such as through our Flinders Way pastoral care program which reflects our College values of Courage, Respect, Integrity and Compassion. Pastoral care is fully integrated throughout teaching, learning and the structural organisation of the College.

Furthermore, students have the support of our College Chaplain, who provides faith leadership, and two dedicated counsellors on staff.

The Flinders Wellbeing Compass, accessed via MyFlinders, features curated news, resources and links to support health and wellbeing.
