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.
For more information on the curriculum, see:
The Victorian Curriculum F–10 - VCAA
There are approximately 20 school-controlled camps across Victoria. Schools are responsible for:
- maintaining the property in a safe and clean condition, particularly in fire-danger areas
- providing and maintaining buildings, services and fences
- complying with all facilities codes and regulations
- developing emergency procedures that detail location and access to the site.
Plantations and forests
There are approximately 500 school-controlled sites used for timber plantation production, arboreta and environmental studies.
Following the harvest of a plantation, the Department’s Property Management Unit in the Infrastructure and Sustainability Division should be consulted prior to any re-planting.
In the event that the site is not to be re-planted, the Department may arrange for its reuse or disposal.
