CSEF

 

-----Please Note, CSEF applications for 2024 have now closed-----

 

CSEF provides financial assistance for eligible families to help their child/children attend activities like school camps, swimming, school-organised sport programs, outdoor education programs, excursions and incursions.  

In 2024 eligible families will be entitled to $150 per child (Primary school student rate).

 

To be eligible for CSEF you must hold one of the following Centrelink cards:

*Centrelink Heath Care Card (HCC)   

*Pensioner Concession Card (PCC)

*Veterans Affairs Gold Card               

*Temporary Foster Parent card

 

For concession card holders, CSEF eligibility will be subject to the parent/legal guardian’s concession card being successfully validated with Centrelink on 29 January 2024 and/or 15 April 2024.

In other words, the expiry date on your Centrelink card must be after one of those dates.

 

CSEF application forms are available from the school office, or online via this link:

CSEF application form

 

Forms should be returned to the school office with a copy of your valid Concession card.  The office can photocopy cards for you.

Even if you had CSEF in previous years, you must reapply each year as your Concession card needs to be valid.

 

The CSEF program for 2024 closes at the end of term two 2024, but early submission is advisable.
