Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund - CSEF
Do you have a Centrelink Health Care Card?
If so, you could be entitled to assistance with payments for your child’s school camps, sports and excursions.
The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund – CSEF is a state government funded scheme to assist eligible families with payments for their child’s camps, sports, and excursion activities run by their school.
To be eligible, parents must hold a valid means-tested concession card, including one of the following:
1. Veterans Affairs Gold Card
2. Centrelink Health Care Card (HCC)
3. Pensioner Concession Card (PCC).
The payment for primary age children is $125 per child and is made directly to the school from the commencement of term three each year. The payments are tied to the student, and can only be allocated to applicable school activities.
If you believe your family to be eligible, please complete the application form and return to the school office, together with a copy of your concession card.
Application forms are available from the school office or via the link here.
If the CSEF application is validated, the $125 payment the school receives on your child’s behalf will be allocated to applicable school activities.
For example, it can be used to pay part of the 2019 fees, allocating $85 to the Excursion Levy (years foundation to year 2) and $100 (years 3 to 6) and $26 to the Gymnastics Fee. Alternatively, it can be used later in the year for camps or swimming activities.
