C.S.E.F. (Camps, Sports & Excursions Fund)
Parents or legal guardians who are eligible are required to complete a CSEF application form and lodge it with the office for processing.
To be eligible for the Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund, a parent or legal guardian of a student attending a registered Government or non-government Victorian primary or secondary school must:
- On the first day of Term one, or;
- On the first day of Term two;
(a) Be an eligible beneficiary within the meaning of the State Concessions Act 2004, that is, be the holder of a Veterans Affairs Gold Card or be an eligible Centrelink Health Care Card (HCC) or Pensioner Concession Card (PCC) holder, OR
(b) Be a temporary foster parent, and
(c) Submit an application to the school by the due date.
Please present your card when submitting an application.
Parents who receive a Carers Allowance on behalf of a child, or any other benefit or allowance not income tested by Centrelink, are not eligible for the CSEF unless they also comply with one of (a) or (b) above.
The CSEF system only allows one application per student. Parents in shared custody situations are encouraged to make decisions as to who applies for the CSEF.
CSEF payments are processed directly to schools, with the majority of payments commencing from March onwards each year. This payment cannot be used for any other items, other than camps, excursions or sporting activities.
