The Mount Erin experience

Staff at Mount Erin strive to make the students’ time there a happy and positive experience and to provide a climate in which they can strive to reach their full potential. There are periods of supervised study each evening and with tutors available to assist students with their homework and assignments. During the school week boarding students are able to attend music lessons, orchestra practice, sport and sports training, practices for school productions and so on.
For transport to and from home each weekend, there are four Boarders’ bus runs travelling via Adelong to Tumut, via Temora and West Wyalong to Lake Cargelligo, via Rosewood to Tumbarumba and via Darlington Point to Griffith. This allows students from these areas to continue their Catholic education through to Year 12.
There is also transport available on normal school buses to Lockhart, Galore, The Rock, Gundagai, Junee, Tarcutta, and Coolamon. Boarding students are able to avoid lengthy daily bus trips, enjoy the benefits of a Catholic education in a safe and caring environment without sacrificing their family life at home.
Students are transported to and from Mater Dei by bus each day and their lunch is provided at the Mater Dei College Canteen. Transport provided by MEBS ensures that Boarders have access to before and after school activities at Mater Dei such as tutoring, sports training and musical ensemble lessons and practice. Students returning from excursions are also collected from the College and transported by MEBS staff to the Boarding School.
