Norwood International High School hosts short term visits of one to two weeks for groups of students from overseas schools. Programs are tailored for each group and usually involve English lessons, cultural excursions, a school experience program and subjects such as Art, Food and Hospitality, STEM and Physical Education.
Students are preferably hosted by families within the school and the local community. Homestay families are required to provide accommodation and meals, transport their study tour student to and from school each day, and provide packed lunches and snacks during the school week.
The school manages its own homestay program for these Study Tours. It is now a legal requirement that a staff member from our International Programs visits your home to check suitability for having a student. Every person over the age of 18 living in your household will need to have a current Working with Children Check (WWCC). The school will arrange this screening and cover any costs involved. At the home visit, more detailed information about the Study Tour will be discussed and you will have the opportunity to ask any questions.
Families who would like more information about becoming a Homestay Family should contact the school on telephone 8364 2299 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
