Homestay information

International students have the opportunity to experience living with a New Zealand family. This may be full time or simply during boarding weekends and school holidays.

All host families undergo a strict application process, assessment of suitability and are visited and approved by the school. Members of the household are required to undergo a police vetting check (excluding international students).

St Paul’s Collegiate School ensures the carer will provide a safe physical and emotional environment. The school also expects the student to live by the rules of the household and as a member of the family.

If you are a New Zealand family interested in hosting international students through homestay, please contact Marg Benefield.
