In acknowledgement of the significant and ongoing challenges facing our parent community, the Minister for Education has approved that the eligibility to quality for CSEF be extended to 5 October 2020, with applications due by 27 November 2020.

Information updated September 7, 2020



The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF) provides payments for eligible students to attend activities like:

  • school camps or trips
  • swimming and school-organised sport programs
  • outdoor education programs
  • excursions and incursions.

Please send your completed form with a copy of your concession card to seabrook.ps@education.vic.gov.au  Thank you


Information updated September 7, 2020
CSEF payments for these students will be made at 50 per cent of the standard primary and secondary rates, recognising that opportunities for camps, sports and excursions have been limited in 2020. 
In addition, schools will be able to use CSEF payments for voluntary school charges, books and stationery for the remainder of 2020.


A parent or legal guardian of a student must:

be an eligible beneficiary of one of these cards:
Veterans Affairs Gold Card
Centrelink Health Care Card
Pensioner Concession Card

OR they must be a temporary foster parent

OR the student is 16 years or older and holds a valid concession card (such as a Youth Allowance Health Care Card) 

AND the parent or legal guardian must submit an application by the due date. 

Parents who receive a carer 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 the above.

Eligibility will be determined when the parent’s concession card successfully validates with Centrelink on either the first day of term one or term two.

If the eligible card is in the name of the student, the fund is only granted to that student, not their siblings.


Criteria- Be of school age and attend a Victorian school

For the purposes of CSEF, students may be eligible for assistance if they attend a Victorian registered primary or secondary school. Typically, these students are aged between five and 18 years. 

School is compulsory for all Victorian children aged between six and 17 years of age.

CSEF is not payable to students attending pre-school, kindergarten, TAFE or who are home schooled.

Payments is:

$125 per year for eligible primary school students

Payments are made directly to the school and are tied to the student.

Payments are for the application year and cannot be claimed for previous years.
