Evening on the Green

The SMC Parents and Friends provides a forum to:

  • engage in a spirit of cooperation with the life of the CollegeSMC Fair 2016
  • promote genuine fellowship between parents, staff and friends of the College
  • assist in the provision of the College’s facilities and teaching resources
  • actively partner and contribute to their child’s educational experiences

The Parents and Friends Association runs a variety of social and fundraising events and proceeds go directly to providing additional facilities for the students.

Be part of the Parents and Friends Association by attending meetings, providing assistance or being available for feedback. We look forward to your input.

Thank you,

Jo Messer
