The Mount Carmel College Parents & Friends Association is raising funds…and here’s how you can help.

From each membership purchased, the College receives 20% of the total cost, while every membership purchased by a member of the College community gives them over $20,000 of value from restaurants, hotels, activities, travel and more.

Memberships come in the form of either an actual book or as a digital version, which has all the offers readily available to view and use via the Entertainment Book app.

How to get involved

The P&F Association is a great way to meet other parents, have a say in how funds are spent, and work on some fun projects that will have a positive outcome for the students of Mount Carmel College. The Committee currently meets once a term in the O’Brien Resource Centre (College Library), with some members catching up more often when working on specific activities or events, such as the College Fair.

Email our P&F President if you have any queries or would like further information.

Thank You!

Congratulations to all involved in the work preparing for our inaugural Afternoon on the Green. The weather was not perfect, but the crowds were good, the spirit of community involvement was outstanding, and our gross takings in excess of $8000. To all who participated in any way, thank you so much. The Afternoon would certainly not have been the success it was without the contribution of many people and businesses.

To all the families of the College – thank you for your generous donations and time given in the lead up to, and on the day of, the event.
