Camps, Sports & Excursions Fund (CSEF)

The Camps Sports and Excursion Fund  (CSEF) is provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families to cover the costs of school excursions, camps and sporting activities for the benefit of your child.  The allowance will be paid to the school by the Education Department.

This is applicable to families who hold a valid means-tested concession card such as a Centrelink Pensioner Concession Card, a Health Care Card, or are a temporary foster parent.

To encourage families to make an application, the School will provide a rebate equivalent to the School Development Levy for those families who submit applications and which are approved by The Education Department.

The form which outlines eligibility requirements needs to be returned to the School by 17 June 2024. Parents must meet the eligibility requirements by:

  • Eligibility Date: 29 January 2024
  • 2nd CRN validation date (for failed CRNs only): 15 April 2024

Parents that received the CSEF at Bacchus Marsh Grammar in 2023 do not need to complete an application form in 2024, providing there has been no change to their family circumstances.

CSEF payments are for the current application year and cannot be claimed retrospectively for prior years.
