STUDENT INFORMATION PACK 2024
If you have a current Health Care Card or Pension Card, you may be eligible for the Camps/Sport/Excursions Fund (CSEF) payment. This funding will be used towards excursions, camps and sporting activities run through the College.
If you applied for the CSEF at your child’s school in 2023, you do not need to complete an application form in 2024 unless there has been a change in your family circumstances. Your child’s school will apply for the CSEF on your behalf.
You will only need to submit an application form in 2024 if any of the following changes have occurred:
- new student enrolments (all year 7 students): your child has started or changed schools in 2023, or you did not apply at the same school in 2023, or
- Changed family circumstances such as a change of custody, change of name, concession card number, or new siblings commencing at the school in 2024.
Schools are able to accept and process applications up until the end of term two each year. CSEF payments are made to schools from March onwards each year. Application forms are available; click on the tab to access. Please complete and return this form to us along with a copy of your concession card. Payment is $225 per student for all students in all year levels.
Applications for 2024 close in June

Mount Erin College is committed to providing students with rich and engaging learning experiences that harness the power of learning technologies. Advances in technology have provided new opportunities to connect, to show understanding, to think creatively, to problem solve and to work collaboratively. We believe that students accessing technology through a 1:1 program positively engage them in these learning opportunities and support improved learning outcomes.
Our machines have been rigorously school tested and have been approved by our college board. Modifications have been made to increase the flexibility of computer function and costs for our families. More information can be found in the 1:1 laptop program booklet below or by contacting our Administration Office.
Whilst our notebook program is aimed at incoming Year 7 students, it is available to all students and will be open throughout the school year.

A uniform dress code reinforces in students a pride in their own appearance, instils recognition of themselves as an integral part of the school community, and assists in developing pride in representing their school. Issues of equality, health and safety, and expense are also factors that contribute to the establishment of the Dress Code.
- To promote equality amongst all students.
- To further develop a sense of pride in, and identification with our school.
- To provide durable clothing that is cost effective and practical for our school environment.
- To maintain and enhance the positive image of the school in the community.
