Homestays Wanted

We will be welcoming International students to Carmel College next year and we are looking for warm and caring homestay families reasonably close to the school.

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.  Our International department will be available to offer plenty of support.

From 2024 remuneration will be $385 per week for students in Years 7-10; $360 per week for students in Years 11-13.

If you can help, or you would like to know more about hosting an International student first, please contact Trudy Freeman on 027 2256651 or email at
