Mercedes Old Scholars' Association

The Mercedes Old Scholars' Association (MOSA) is a valuable part of the Mercedes College Community. They play a pivotal role in the continuing development of the College by supporting volunteer programmes, attending College functions and giving generously back to the school.

While continuing to expand their services, the Old Scholars work hard to retain current members while encouraging new ones.

Follow MOSA on Facebook, where we post regular updates on Old Scholars and flashback every Friday to highlights from the College's history.
