CSEF will be provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families to help cover the costs of school camps, sports and excursions. Families holding a valid means-tested concession card for e.g. Veterans Affairs Gold Card, Centrelink Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession card and Temporary Foster parents are eligible to apply.
A Special Consideration category exits for:
- Families on a Bridging Visa, Temporary Protection Visa, are in community detention or are asylum seeker or refugee families
- Students in out of home care
- Students in statutory kinship care
Please also note the parent/carer of a student who is 16 years or older and who holds a valid concession card (such as Youth Allowance Health Care Card or Disability Support Pension Card) are eligible to apply.
The allowance is paid to the school to use towards expenses relating to camps, sports and excursions for the benefit of your child. The annual CSEF amount per student is $225 for secondary school students.
