The Mercedes Parents and Friends Association provides many opportunities for parental involvement at the College.


The Mercedes College Parents and Friends Association (MP&FA) is a friend and fundraising committee who provide many opportunities for parents to become involved in the community.

A schedule of friend and fundraising activities is planned each year to enable parents to foster friendships and develop a sense of community while actively supporting the College to raise funds for specific projects around the school.

We encourage all families to become active members or volunteers for the Parents and Friends Association. Membership is open to all parents and guardians of students enrolled at the College.

The Charter for Parents in Catholic Schools

This charter was developed by The Federation of Catholic School Parent Communities (SA) in consultation with parents, principals and the Catholic Education Offices. It sets out ways by which all members of our community can work together to ensure that we create the best learning environment for our young people in Catholic Schools across the state.
