CSEF – 2020

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 2019, you do not need to complete an application form in 2020 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 2020 if any of the following changes have occurred:

  • new student enrolments (all year 7 students): your child has started or changed schools in 2020;  or you did not apply at the same school in 2019;   or
  • changed family circumstances such as a change of custody, change of name, concession card number, or new siblings commencing at the school in 2020.

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 2020 close on 26th June 2020.

College Bus Program

College Bus Program

The College is well serviced by public transport and the College Bus Program operates buses through the surrounding areas. The College Bus Program assists parents by transporting students to College. 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.  Refer to Mount Erin College Bus Information Kit for details on eligibility and bus routes available.

Important Information regarding the Pearcedale Charter Bus

There are a number of students who reside in the Pearcedale area that are ineligible for free bus travel, as they are not attending their closest government secondary school and do not meet any of the Exemption Criteria.

The College has arranged to Charter a Bus that enables ineligible students to travel to Pearcedale in the afternoon.  There is a charge per term, payable in advance, to travel on the Pearcedale Charter Bus.  Once payment has been received students are issued with a Bus Pass for that term.

The College subsidises the cost of the Pearcedale Charter Bus to make it affordable for families. We will continue to provide this Service whilst there is sufficient demand.

Uniform – 2020

Rationale:

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.

Aims:

  • 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.
