Oh la la, for the love of all things French
Parlez-vous francaise? If you love everything French or even if you just love a good fete, come along to Mercedes College Community Day – La Fete Francaise from 11 am to 3 pm on Sunday 8 April 2018 for the bi-annual community day.

Located at 540 Fullarton Road, Springfield, the College's picturesque rose garden will be transformed into a festive French fete. Ranging from berets to baguettes and everything in between, this fete will create a Parisian atmosphere and have you believing you have truly found your way to France.
