Are you interested in becoming a Homestay?
A major part of the success of our international programs is due to the involvement of Banksia Park International High School students, families and the community in providing homestay accommodation for international students while they are studying with us.
Banksia Park International High School is keen for prospective new parents and/or families to join our homestay program. As a local family hosting an international student, you will have the chance to learn about other cultures, customs and traditions, make lasting friendships with your student and their family, and explore fun things to see and do in South Australia.
Families can become involved in hosting short term international students, for short periods of time generally between 5 and 12 days, or longer term students, ranging from 4 weeks and up to 5 years. Homestay families receive a remuneration for hosting an international student.
If you are interested in becoming a Homestay parent/family and would like to find out more information, then please contact the school on 08 8264 8122 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of our international team will then be in contact with you.
