INTERNATIONAL HOST FAMILIES NEEDED
Birkenhead College is seeking local families to host International Students for 2023.
We are looking forward to hosting overseas students once again at the school. An integral part of their NZ stay is to live with a local family and participate in family life, which is an important aspect of the total student experience.
International students also offer valuable cultural interaction for you and your family - many families have made lifelong friends as a result of hosting!
Host families are asked to provide a room, three meals a day, Wi-Fi connection and to assist with transport from time to time, for which $300 per week will be paid. All members of the household aged 18 years and older are required to complete a Police Vet check via the school.
If you would like to know more, please contact:
Sally Baker or phone 09 483 9039, Ext 806.
Due to erosion of pathways in the reserve at the back of the school, Auckland Council have advised that students should not use these pathways. Field gates will be locked and students are advised to use road access.
