The Victorian Government Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF) provides payments to assist eligible families (holders of valid means-tested concession cards or temporary foster parents) to cover the costs of school trips, camps and sporting activities. The annual amount per student is currently $125 (primary school) and $225 (secondary school).
For more information, first contact your child’s school. If further information is required, see https://www2.education.vic.gov.au/pal/camps-sports-and-excursions-fund/policy.
In country areas and some outer metropolitan areas, students who reside 4.8 km or more from their nearest Catholic school may be eligible for transport assistance. In locations where there is not enough demand to run a free school bus service, the Victorian Government provides a conveyance allowance to help with travel costs.
For more information, first contact your child’s school. If further information is required, see https://www2.education.vic.gov.au/pal/conveyance-allowance/policy or www.ptv.vic.gov.au/tickets/regional-tickets/victorian-school-buses/school-bus-program.
