CSEF Application

CSEF Applications are due Friday, 17th July, 2020.

Information for parents/guardians holding a current Centrelink Health Care card, Pensioner Concession card or Veterans Affairs Gold card.

If you hold a current Centrelink Health Care card, Pensioner Concession card or Veteran's Affairs Gold card (valid at 30 January 2020) or the first day of Term 2 (Tuesday 14 April 2020) you may be eligible for Financial Assistance through the Camps Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF).

CSEF is provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families to cover the costs of school trips, camps, excursions, incursions and sporting activities for Prep to Year 12 students.

If you hold a valid means-tested concession card or are a temporary foster parent, you may be eligible for CSEF. The allowance is paid to the school to use towards expenses relating to camps, excursions or sporting activities for the benefit of your child. Parents will see this payment passed onto them in the form of a credit on their fee account.

The annual CSEF amount per student is:

• $125 for primary school students
• $225 for secondary school students


New applicants should complete the CSEF application form and email it to accountsreceivable@heathdale.vic.edu.au for processing. Forms must be received by Friday 17th July, 2020.

If you have applied for the CSEF in prior years, you do not need to complete an application form in 2020 unless there has been a change in your family circumstances (examples below).

You only need to complete an application form if any of the following changes have occurred:

• New student enrolments; your child has started or changed schools in 2020 or you did not apply in 2019.
• Changed family circumstances; such as a change of custody, change of name, concession card number, or new siblings commencing at the school in 2020.

Information about the CSEF program is available on the Vic DET website
