Homestay families provide the opportunity for visiting students to practice their English conversational skills and learn about Australian culture in a secure and caring home environment. International students develop lasting friendships with their host families.

Homestay families: 

  • host international students for short or long stays (from a few weeks to several years)
  • are carefully chosen from the school community
  • are committed to providing the best experience for the student
  • must have a current Blue Card from CCYPCG
  • provide visiting students with their own room with study facilities, three meals each day and access to transport to and from school and school-related activities
  • receive payment for the accommodation they provide.

Homestay students:

  • are responsible for all costs of transportation to and from school and recreational activities
  • can be placed in a host family with another international student of a different nationality.
