School Holiday Periods
Victorian School holiday periods are reserved for clergy bookings until 2 weeks prior to the holiday period, at which time any vacancies will become generally available. During school holidays preference is given to clergy with school-age children (NB: this does not include grandchildren). You can express your interest in booking during these periods by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the Christmas/January holiday period bookings are allocated to clergy via a ballot system. Clergy of the Bendigo Diocese will be advised when applications for the ballot are open.
Please note, Eddington is only available for a total of 7 nights per family in a calendar year.
