In addition, they will publish a listing of books and requisites for parents to purchase for their children. These decisions are guided by the Department of Education Parent Payment Policy

Every Victorian child should have access to the world of learning opportunities that exist beyond the classroom. The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund helps families with an eligible Pension or Health Care Card by providing funding to support students to participate in school camps, excursions and sporting activities.
School camps provide children with inspiring experiences in the great outdoors, excursions encourage a deeper understanding of how the world works and sports teach teamwork, discipline and leadership. All are part of a healthy curriculum.
CSEF will be provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families to cover the costs of these activities.
If you hold a valid means-tested concession card or are a temporary foster parent, you may be eligible for CSEF. A special consideration category also exists for asylum seeker and refugee families. The allowance is paid to the school to use towards expenses relating to camps, excursions or sporting activities for the benefit of your child.
The annual CSEF amount per student is $125 for primary school students and $225 for secondary school students.
HOW TO APPLY
Forms can also be downloaded from the link provided or copies are available from the school office. Applications must be submitted in term 1 or 2 only.
Upon successful validation of your application, payments will be sent to the school and will be held in credit against the name of each eligible child. The credit will be used to offset the cost of excursions, camps and sporting activities that the eligible child will participate in.
The CSEF system only allows one application per student, per year. Parents in shared custody situations are encouraged to make decisions as to who applies for the CSEF. Schools should not be put into the position of arbitrating in decisions such as this.
