Student Code of Conduct


Inspiring members of our community to be learners impelled to thrive and serve

The Student Code of Conduct provides a framework within which students are able to develop the pro-social behaviours which are acceptable within the broader community and reflect the Mercy Values fundamental to the culture of the College. The Student Code of Conduct provides an outline of the behavioural expectations for students when they are on the school site, moving to and from school, travelling on public and contract transport services and when attending sporting events, school functions, excursions, etc.
