We need more Homestay homes ready for future International students coming to HHS.

International Students are a very important part of our school, they bring diversity & culture to our school community.

We have an awesome group of Homestay Caregivers but we need more to accommodate the new students coming in this year and next year as well as some back up homes for the students here now.

If you are interested in hosting an International Student in the future I would love to hear from you. 

You need to: 

  • Have excellent English
  • Have a healthy home with a separate bedroom for the student. 
  • Be able to offer care, support & supervision applicable to a teenager. 
  • Be willing to be Police Vetted (applicable to anyone 18 years and over in the household). 
  • Live in HHS Zone (or not too far outside the zone).

A weekly fee is paid to the Homestay for hosting a student. 

Please email me ddawson@hillcrest-high.school.nz or visit the school website for a Homestay application and information found under the International tab:
