Homestays urgently needed

Homestays needed: can you help our International Department by hosting overseas students?

Have you thought about hosting an international student?  Now is the time!

Due to changed circumstances we have two students who are without a homestay.  These students arrive in mid July to start at Wellington High in term 3. Both students are boys.

  • Male student 1 – aged 16.5 from Italy, here for terms 3 & 4 i.e. until December. This boy is allergic to animal hair.
  • Male student 2 – aged 15 from Germany, here for a full year i.e. July to July
We are looking for inclusive, caring and supportive homes.  The students require a room of their own, three meals a day and to be welcomed into family life. A homestay fee of $281.00 is paid per week. Payment is made fortnightly (increasing to $305 p/w in 2020).  There is close support and communication provided from the WHS International Dept.
