Richmond View School facilitates the process of finding a suitable homestay family for any International Student. Host Families are carefully chosen so students are close to school and have easy access to public transport, local shops and amenities.
Homestay families provide three meals a day and provide a caring home where students are part of their family life. Host families provide support and care for them while they are in New Zealand. Students often form life long friendships with their host families.
Before a student departs their home country, details of their host family will be sent to them. Students are greeted at the airport when they arrive in New Zealand.
Our International Department staff provide care and support for all International Students and their homestay families.
Parents and Designated Caregivers
Our International Department are also responsible for ensuring students who are staying with their parents, homestay families or designated caregivers (relatives or close friends of parents), have living conditions that comply with the Code of Practice requirements.
