Host families are expected to include their international student as an extended member of their family (not just a boarder) and offer them a true 'Kiwi experience'. In return, they are offered the opportunity to learn about other cultures and form lifelong friendships that reach across the globe.
A weekly remuneration is paid to host families by the school. As a signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students, Awatapu College complies with all government requirements.
For more information about becoming a host family please contact the International Department, or complete the form below and return to the International Administrator to commence your application process. We will make contact to arrange a visit at a time that suits you.
