Concession Card Holders – Camps, Sport & Excursions Fund (CSEF)

CSEF is provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families with the cost of excursions, camps and sporting activities. You will be eligible if you hold a means tested concession card or are a temporary foster parent.  The annual amount per student is $225.00.

After reviewing the College process for financial hardship support, it has been decided that Sacred Heart College will match that subsidy with a further $225 per student. Both the Government and College subsidies will be credited to the family fee account. 

In 2020 the Department of Education has extended the eligibility date of card holders to the 5/10/20 for the Camps Sport & Excursion Fund Applications.  Closing date is 25/11/20.

If you have a concession card valid prior to and including the 5/10/20 you may be eligible for $112.50 per student. The College will match this amount.

A total of $225.00 will be credited to your Family Fee Account for each student.
