Students from Year 7 to Year 12 have the option of Weekly Boarding at the Mt Erin Boarding School (MEBS), which is located in Edmondson Street.
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 on hand 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. The boarding students also enjoy the use of school facilities.
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 the following areas: 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 the MEBS bus each day and a packed lunch is provided for them. Details about the boarding option are provided here and further information is available from the Boarding School Director Mr Wheeler on 6925 3074 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
