Orientation Walks

Join the Principal and Heads of School for an Orientation Walk and experience the College as the students and staff go about their daily activities.

Orientation Walks have become small group tours during COVID-19

Following the advice of the government and health authorities relating to COVID-19, the College is not currently conducting normal Orientation Walks. 

However, we know you may like to visit Mercedes College as you consider options for your child's education, and we are committed to welcoming you into our school community to discuss the learning opportunities, pastoral care programmes, and extra-curricular activities available to our students. 

We are currently offering small group tours, of no more than 20 people following social distancing guidelines, where you will meet our Principal before going on a guided tour with a member of staff. 

If you would like a small group tour in June, please phone the College on 8372 3200 or email the College Registrar's Office registrar@mercedes.catholic.edu.au for dates/times and to book. 

At this stage, we are taking bookings as normal for our first Orientation Walk in Term 3 on Wednesday 29 July. Bookings can be made using the form below.
