Newlands College will carefully select a homestay family who lives within easy travel distance to Newlands College. Our homestay families are experienced and are regularly monitored to ensure the students have a positive experience. All Newlands College homestay families meet the requirements of the New Zealand Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students.
A homestay family will provide you with:
- a warm, caring family environment
- a comfortable room with furniture including study facilities
- three meals a day and after school snacks
- laundry services
All students who are homestayed by the college are met at the airport by the Homestay Counsellor. She continues to meet regularly with each student to give guidance and to help them adjust to living with a local family.
