Reports & Awards

Student Reports

Reports are made available electronically to parents four times a year and there are two parent teacher meetings formally scheduled.

Report showing results in each unit in relation to peers

At the end of every semester, upon request, we will provide you with written information that clearly shows your child’s achievement in the units studied in comparison to that of other students in the same unit and grade. 

This information will show you the number of students in each of the achievement levels A to E.

However, due to concerns for privacy, this data will be provided upon request only when the peer group contains more than 15 students.

A tally of the student’s Days Absent and Days Late for school during the Term, is shown on each Report.


Awards or appropriate recognition will be given to students who live out the school motto “To Serve Christ”, by working to the best of their ability and helping others do the same. The Mercy College awards not only recognise students who have achieved in academic, sporting and cultural activities, but also those who use their gifts and talents to help others.
