Become a homestay host

Become a homestay host

Thank you for your interest in hosting an International Student from Auckland Grammar School. Hosting a student is an enriching and fun experience and a great way for you and those living in your household to enjoy learning about a new culture and sharing your own.

These young students benefit immeasurably from a caring and supportive environment, and being able to improve their spoken English in a relaxed, family-oriented situation, such as after school and over dinner.

The home should ideally be within 6km from the School. The 2020 hosting payment is NZ$310 per week, which is paid one month in advance.

To apply to become a homestay host, please complete this application form and return by email. All hosts are additionally required to complete a Police Clearance process form, which is mandatory in New Zealand.

For further information and a confidential chat, please contact Student Welfare Manager Ms Sandra Heslin.
