We are once again running our Book Fair in conjunction with Education Week. There will be a large selection of books available for purchase, levelled at all ages and across a wide price range. Something for everyone! The theme for this year’s Fair is PIRATES so throughout the week there will be a focus on this topic across the school, including a Dress Up day on Tuesday 23rd May with a PIRATE focus! Children are invited to dress up as a pirate — from a book, a movie or maybe an imaginary pirate. Join in the fun – be as quirky, weird or strange as you like!
The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF) commenced in 2015 for four years and provides payments for eligible students to attend camps, sports and excursions. The Victorian Government’s $148 million initiative helps ensure all Victorian students can take part in school trips and sporting activities. CSEF applications for 2017 are required no later than Wednesday 28th June to ensure the cut off of Friday 30th June is met. Parents or legal guardians are required to submit a CSEF application form to their child’s school.
Families holding a valid means-tested concession card or temporary foster parents are eligible to apply. $125 per year is paid for eligible primary school students, with $225 per year paid for eligible secondary school students. A special consideration eligibility category also exists. Payments are made directly to the school and are tied to the student.
Criteria 1 – Eligibility
To be eligible for the fund, a parent or legal guardian of a student attending a registered Government or non-government Victorian primary or secondary school must:
- on the first day of Term one, or;
- on the first day of Term two;
a) Be an eligible beneficiary within the meaning of the State Concessions Act 2004, that is, be the holder of a Veterans Affairs Gold Card or be an eligible Centrelink Health Care Card (HCC) or Pensioner Concession Card (PCC) holder, OR
b) Be a temporary foster parent, and
c) Submit an application to the school 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 one of (a) or (b) above.
Criteria 2 – Be of school age and attend a Victorian school
School is compulsory for all Victorian children aged between six and 17 years of age.
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.
CSEF is not payable to students attending pre-school, kindergarten, home schooled, or TAFE.
CSEF eligibility will be subject to the parent/legal guardian’s concession card successfully validating with Centrelink on either the first day of term one or term two.
Term one validation
If the parent/legal guardian’s concession card successfully validates on the first day of term one, the application will be processed and the full annual payment will be made to the school from March, 2017.
For applications which fail the term one validation, but become valid on the first day of term two, the application will be processed and annual payment will be made to the school during term two.
The amount payable for eligible primary and secondary students is:
- $125 for Primary school students.
- $225 for Secondary school students.
The CSEF is an annual payment to the school of the eligible applicant.
The CSEF will be available for schools to enter application information into the online CSEF web system from term one each year.
CSEF payments will be processed directly to schools with the majority of payments to commence from March, 2017 onwards. The CSEF system will remain open during term one and term two for applications to be added.
CSEF payments are for the application year and cannot be claimed retrospectively for prior years.
