Homestays Wanted

Next year we will be welcoming a number of International students back to Carmel College – both short and long term – and we are looking for warm and caring homestay families reasonably close to the school.  We do have one student from Japan that loves horse riding so we are also looking for a family who rides.

Our homestay hosts must be New Zealand residents and speak English at home.  If you like learning about other cultures, and have a spare room, you might like to consider hosting.  If you are unsure, try hosting a short-term student to see if this is something for you.  You will receive a payment for looking after your student, and our International department will be available to offer plenty of support.

If you can help, or you would like to know more about hosting an International student first, please contact Shelley Roschmann on 486-1132, extension 709 or email at
