Host families needed
Does your family speak English as its first language? If so, you can host a short or long term international student and get paid $230 a week. Murrays Bay Intermediate International students are living in New Zealand without their parents. Murrays Bay Intermediate School takes full responsibility for these students and is there to support the host and their family. The school has a person available 24/7 to help in case of emergency. Students are brought by their relatives or agents to New Zealand and ask the school to introduce a warm friendly family as a homestay. Families who have welcomed these children into their home often become very attached to their homestay and are reluctant to say good bye at the end of the stay. The sharing of culture is often why a host family is keen to have an international student in their family. The agent, who pays the homestay directly, will often be involved with caring for the student, taking the student out for a dinner or a day sometimes. The child attends the school as a normal kiwi student. Murrays Bay Intermediate School hosts international students to help pay towards providing our school with excellent facilities, sports equipment, computer equipment and teacher helpers in classrooms. All homestays are carefully selected and monitored to ensure that appropriate standards are maintained. If you are interested in hosting students short term or long term please email your enquiry to Lynley Knight and she will be delighted to contact you and answer some of your questions. (Short term stays – 3 weeks to 1 term or Long term stays – 1 term up to a year)
