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:

Nataliya Novak or phone 09 483 9039, Ext 838.


Last week we held our annual International Day - a time to show how many different cultures and countries the school represents. Dressing in cultural costumes is always a highlight, as well as the delicious food on offer at the International Food Stalls. Our afternoon concerts are always amazing, and all of our students were able to take part in some cultural activities throughout the afternoon. 2023 was certainly one of the best!
