A Victorian school has cancelled an upcoming trip to France in the wake of the recent terror attacks in Paris.
The Education Department is now reviewing all school trips to France amid safety concerns for students and staff.
Eleven students from Broadford Secondary College in central Victoria were set to travel to France later this week.
The Year 8 to 11 students and two teachers had been looking forward to spending three days in Paris.
Principal David Mills said the chidren's parents appreciated that it had been a "difficult decision".
"I do not take this decision lightly," he said.
"However, it is the most prudent and appropriate decision to make at this point, considering recent events."
Parents have been called into a meeting to discuss the situation, and the school is trying to refund their money.
The federal government's Smart Traveller website says there is a heightened threat of a terror attack across France.
France is under a nationwide state of emergency which could be extended for months as the country grapples with the aftermath of the terror attack.
An Education Department spokesman said it owed a duty of care to staff and students.
"The Department will also continue to monitor the situation and work with other Victorian schools that have scheduled trips to France in November and December," the spokesman said.
Carleen Wheeler, president of the Council of Australian Student Exchange Organisations, said she had been asked to report to state governments about how French students in Australia were coping.
Ms Wheeler is also the chief executive of World Exchange Program, which runs student exchanges in 25 countries including France, a popular destination for Victorian students studying French.
She said schools that had signed up to the World Exchange Program could cancel their trips to France, but none had chosen to do so.
"Everything is going ahead as planned," she said.
She said Australian students on her exchange program lived in smaller French cities, and only ever spent a few days in Paris.
