Parent Connect

Parent Connect was started to help encourage, maintain and support the important connection between students, the school and families. Parent Connect is not a fundraising group or a committee, but a friendly group of parents who are interested in learning more about life at secondary school, education in general and the opportunities and programs Mount Erin College offers to students.
Meetings are publicised on the College website and it often has guest speakers. Previous topics have included Careers Pathways and Cyber Safety. The topics and agenda are decided by you! It is a great way to meet other parents and have your questions answered.
Interested parents and community members are warmly invited to join. Please contact the College to register your interest.
Contact:
Jenny Pudney on 03 5971 6049 or mount.erin.sc@edumail.vic.gov.au

To contact any of our school team please phone the college on 03 5971 6000 or email mount.erin.sc@edumail.vic.gov.au

  As we continue through our journey of remote learning, please remember that no one expects you to be a teacher or IT expert. The most important thing you can do is to provide comfort, support and encouragement to your child. Find support at the Department of Education Parent Information link below.

“The first thing to point out is that you’ve been doing home-based learning with your kids ever since they were born.”

Clinical psychologist Andrew Fuller has written a brief and very practical guide for parents who are trying to support their kids with home-based learning.

With his usual down-to-earth approach and sense of humour, Andrew sets out some basic principles that will help you through and give you confidence in what you’re doing with your kids.
