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 2021, you do not need to complete an application form in 2022 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 2022 if any of the following changes have occurred:
- new student enrolments (all year 7 students): your child has started or changed schools in 2022; or you did not apply at the same school in 2021; or
- changed family circumstances such as a change of custody, change of name, concession card number, or new siblings commencing at the school in 2022.
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 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 2022 close in June

Mount Erin College has sourced these calculators as an alternative option for parents to take up.

The school is well serviced by public transport and the School Bus Program operates buses through the surrounding areas. The School Bus Program assists parents by transporting students to school. Categories of eligibility determine whether a student travels at no cost or travels upon the payment of a fare. Students wishing to access a seat on a bus must complete an application form and parents/guardians must agree to the conditions of travel including, if applicable, the payment of a fare.
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.
IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE PROGRAM FOR 2022
2020-2021 has been some very challenging years for everyone. COVID has had a large impact on how we’ve had to operate as a school and has really revolutionised the way we’ve had to deliver content to students.
We’ve had to make changes to the program to ensure that it can proceed in a safe, but efficient manner.
In previous years, the devices would be delivered directly to the school – The school technicians would setup/image each device then we would arrange for collection on Orientation Day in December. (or handed directly to the student if they are current student)
This year we’ve had to make other arrangements as we cannot host a collection day for the students.
To facilitate this we have changed our procedure to have EduNet image the devices and arrange delivery via AusPost directly to you.
While this process will be new to us, EduNet has had several schools operate this way in previous years and can ensure a smooth delivery.
The machines will arrive to you pre-imaged but not connected to the college domain. This connection will take place during the first day at the College. (or as early as we can organise – We will work with the Year 7 team to make sure this happens as priority but not being disruptive to the students learning.)
This connection will set up a new login profile for your student, that will use their MEC username and password to access.
(These login details will be provided to the students at the time)
You will be given access to the device via a temporary local profile so you can use the machine when you get it, but once the connection to the MEC domain takes place this profile will be disabled.
Edunet is our preferred partner for 2022. Mount Erin College has partnered with EduNet for the last 7 years to supply notebooks towards our 1:1 notebook program. We have found them to be a reliable and reputable company trusted by schools over Victoria.
EduNet is a local education supplier based in Mornington and is committed to providing good quality student notebooks at affordable prices. We support our hardware at every stage of the process and pride ourselves on high quality service.

Mount Erin College is committed to providing a wider access to valuable resources & learning opportunities via its current network. Part of this is the development of our BYOD program – providing access to self serve apps and online resources.
We are only able to provide limited support to BYO devices, assisting students to connect to the College wireless network with their BYO device.
For more information, please check out our BYOD Portal.
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.
