Homestay Families Needed please to host teenage boys from Japan 19th - 31st August.
If you have a spare room in your house and a boy of your own that lives at home, could you be talked into hosting for us? There mustn't be another Japanese speaking student in the house and we would have to ask you to fill in a few forms and agree to be police vetted.
You would receive $220 per week for the student.
You don't have to have children at our school. The students attend normal school days and will spend time with you at the weekend and in the evening. We have been hosting visits from Ritsumeikan Junior High School for a few years now and the young people have been delightful.
If you are interested, please get in touch with Dagmar Goodall, d.goodall@ghs.school.nz
