Classroom Notes

CAMPS, SPORTS & EXCURSIONS FUND (CSEF)

School camps provide children with inspiring experiences in the great outdoors. Excursions encourage a deeper understanding of how the world works while sports teach teamwork, discipline and leadership. All are a part of a healthy curriculum.

CSEF is provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families to cover the costs of school trips, camps and sporting activities. If you hold a valid means-tested concession card or are a temporary foster parent, you may be eligible for CSEF.

A special consideration category also exists for asylum seeker and refugee families.

The allowance is paid to the school to use towards expenses relating to camps, excursions or sporting activities for the benefit of your child.

The annual CSEF amount per student is:

  • $125 for primary school students
  • $225 for secondary school students

For more Information please visit https://www.vic.gov.au/camps-sports-and-excursions-fund

Lunch Orders

Our canteen is open daily at recesses and lunchtimes and provides a range of everyday food options for all students. The menu is updated regularly. When ordering lunch orders from the canteen, please write your child’s name and grade clearly on a lunch bag.
