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.
DEBATING TEAM WINS COMPETITION
Our Open Advanced debating team had a hugely successful finish to their Auckland Schools Debating Competition, winning the final against Rangitoto College.
The team comprised of Jack MacPherson, Aalam Sharma and Matthew Hutchinson, who have been debating throughout their time as students at BC. Teacher in charge of debating, Mr Austen Pageau, is very pleased with the team, sayng the debate was "really exciting". To top off this outstanding result, Aalam was also named Best Speaker in the Auckland-wide competition, which comprises over 150 debating students.
