Home Stay Accommodation

As an international student at St Hilda’s we ensure that you have a caring and homely environment in which to live.

All of our overseas girls live with a host family. It’s the best way to:

  • really experience New Zealand family life
  • make friends and settle in quickly
  • improve your English skills

Our homestay families:

  • are carefully selected by us
  • are subject to all the requirements of New Zealand law,
    including police checks
  • provide a caring home environment
  • are interested in your welfare
  • will be involved in your academic progress
  • will keep in regular contact with staff at school
  • will include you as one of their family

The Director of International Students, takes a personal interest in the placement of every girl and ensures that they are placed as closely as possible with the type of homestay family they prefer.
