Home Stay

The school arranges homestay accommodation for international students. Living with a NZ family helps to improve English and real friendships are formed.

Many of our students return to NZ just to visit their homestay families. All families are carefully selected and have undergone a police vetting procedure.

Most host families live within walking distance of the school. Some families are large (4-5 children) and some are small (1 host mother). Nearly all families have pets (usually a dog or cat). Families do not live in apartments but in detached houses with a garden.
