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.
