Homestay Families Needed
Jun 6, 2019


We are receiving more applications from students who are vegetarian or vegan so we are keen to hear from families who can support these lifestyles.  We have a student enrolling who has asked for a nut free household.

An Austrian boy is joining us for the first half of 2020 who is an avid bird watcher and photographer. He is keen to experience our outdoor environment and wildlife and would love a family with similar interests.

A key requirement of homestay families is that you can provide a student with their own room. Ministry of Education rules also require that you will need to are interviewed in your home and pass a police check.

Your student will be a part of your family, take part in family life and of course follow the same rules. The time international students spend with you can often be life changing for them, and your family can make a life long friend,  Homestay parents receive a weekly homestay payment of $250 which covers food and other in house expenses.If you need more information or want to make a time for an interview please contact Marika Last on 027 555 8605 or lat@aotea.school.nz. Please pass on this information to neighbours, friends, and family if you think you know someone who would enjoy the job.
