Host family opportunity

International opportunity Building on Last Year’s Success  

Our host families and school community had a fantastic time last year when we welcomed Tokyo’s Hakuo high school to North High. Our guests obviously agreed as they have chosen to return to North again in 2019 and for an extended time period. This will give them a full weekend to enjoy with their host family, day trip to Childers’ animal parks and 3 days at CQU doing STEM programmes.

What we need to make this possible are host families!

Would you like to host a student from overseas?

Perhaps experience first- hand another country’s culture?

Or maybe you want to show off what we have in our Bundaberg area?

Well this is your chance as North High is going to be hosting 20 students from Tokyo’s Hakuo HS during the two weeks Sun 21st July – Sat 3rd August. Please note that host families will receive payment for hosting students and are responsible for their food and transport to school.

This will be an ongoing programme each year so if you are unavailable in 2019 but would like to be considered as a host family, for future events, please let us know so that you may be added to our registry of host families.

We will select families by:

1.       Homestay Family application form

2.       Blue card check (school can organise a card  at no cost to you)

3.       House inspection (guests need to have their own bed but may be sharing a room)

4.       Matching students with families eg. interests, non-allergies  to pets ..

To express your interest or to proceed further with application forms, please email or phone 41300311
