Students and teachers at Mercy Regional College work together to build a culture where student voice, agency and leadership are understood as interrelated factors that contribute to the notion of empowerment and sense of school pride.
The College fosters a certain level of autonomy and power for students in their learning environment. All students are provided with the opportunity and skills to listen to, understand and advocate for others. Students can choose to extend their leadership skills by applying for representative leadership positions which are available at several different levels within the College.

Mercy Regional College has a well developed and widely recognised Student Voice program involving students from all year levels who are included in the decision making processes of the College. The program empowers our students to not only communicate ideas and opinions but influence change. Meetings and open forum discussions are conducted with students and the Deputy Principal throughout the school year to allow opinions and views to be shared and heard.
