Safety Guidelines for Education Outdoors
From Term 1 2017, Victorian government and Catholic schools will use the new Victorian Curriculum F-10. Curriculum related information is currently being reviewed and may be subject to change.

The Victorian Curriculum F–10 - VCAA
The Safety Guidelines for Education Outdoors are in place to support the planning and approval of: overnight excursions; camps; interstate and overseas visits; excursions requiring sea or air travel; excursions involving weekends or vacations; and adventure activities.
These excursions all require the approval of the school council, see: Planning and Approval Process
All excursions requiring school council approval must apply these guidelines from 1 January 2008.
