Living with New Zealand families gives students the opportunity of experiencing our way of life. Homestays provide dinner, bed and breakfast Monday through Sunday, plus lunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
All of the homestay families are known by us and are an integral part of the college. Most of our students stay with one of our homestay families and if the students are staying on in Queenstown we are able to assist them in finding accommodation.
• Bed, dinner and breakfast 5 days a week (Monday to Friday).
• Bed, dinner, lunch and breakfast 2 days a week (Weekends).
