Camps, Sports & Excursion Fund
Every Victorian child should have access to the world of learning opportunities that exist beyond the classroom. The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund helps ensure that no student will miss out on the opportunity to join their classmates for important, educational and fun activities. It is part of making Victoria the Education State and the Government’s commitment to breaking the link between a student’s background and their outcomes.
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
•• $225 for secondary school students
Please note that if your child was enrolled at Surf Coast Secondary College and was a recipient of the 2016 CSEF, you do not need to complete another application. When you signed the 2016 application form, you agreed to the clause:
• this consent, once signed, remains valid while my child is enrolled at a registered Victorian school unless I withdraw it by contacting the school.
If you did not receive the CSEF in 2016 and meet the eligibility criteria, please complete an application form and return it to the College's Administration Team as soon as possible.
If you have any questions regarding the Camps, Sports & Excursion Fund please contact us on 03 5261 6633.
SCSC is currently well served by a number of dedicated bus routes.
Within Victorian Schools bussing to and from school fits into 3 categories.
School dedicated Public Bus Routes
SCSC has three of these routes running to and from Grovedale via Wombah Park, the Quay and the Sands; to and from Jan Juc via the Surf Coast Highway and to and from Ocean Acres via Coombes Road. These Buses are controlled by Public Transport Victoria (PTV) , a Myki Card is essential for travel on these buses and the College has no say on whether we keep or increase the number of buses on these routes. That is a PTV decision. Having said this to have three dedicated buses is definitely good service.
DET Committed Conveyance Bus
SCSC has two of these buses. One runs from Anglesea, the other from Bellbrae to SCSC. This bus serves students attending SCSC, Torquay College and St Therese PS. This bus is available for students living on this route who live are more than 4.8km for who SCSC is their closest Public Secondary school. There may also be other criteria students must fit to be eligible for free travel on this bus. Student access to this bus is made via application to DET (application forms can be collected from the College Administration Office) and SCSC has no control over the success of these applications. Only students who successfully apply are allowed travel on this bus.
Regular Public Transport Buses
Public transport buses run up and down the Surf Coast Highway every day with bus stops at the Merrijig and Surf Coast Highway intersection. These buses are solely run by PTV and serve all community members. Again Myki cards are essential for travel of these buses.
At SCSC Stephanie Bates is our Bus Coordinator. Questions relating to Bus services can be directed to Stephanie by contacting the college on 03 5261 6633. Please note that Stephanie coordinates this program as it is set out by DET and PTV. Decisions made on the SCSC Bus service is not the decision of the school. We will relay all concerns to PTV and DET and continue to work to get even better service for our growing population.
Anglesea/Bellbrae Buses 2016
There have been changes to the bus timetable since 2015. Please view the 2016 Bus Brochure (available below) to see the updates.
