All international students must live in a school-approved homestay. Students are not permitted to live in flats/apartments. Regardless of age, they must live with a family where approved adults care for them. Parents of students who are not living in a school-arranged homestay (with a designated caregiver for example) are required to sign a form releasing the school from responsibility for their welfare outside school hours.
All accommodation will be regularly visited by the College homestay staff. All Alfriston College homestay carers and their live-in family members over the age of 18 have been vetted by the New Zealand Police. (Code of Practice for International Students).
Fees are paid to the school at the same time as tuition fees. The school pays the homestay families on a fortnightly basis.
Students may not change their accommodation without the International Student Leader’s permission, and this permission must be sought in writing and well in advance.
These students must live with either their parents or a close family relative or friend. These students’ parents must sign the ‘Designated Caregivers’ form, available from the school or agents stating that they agree to take responsibility for placing their son/daughter with their relative.
Students living with their parents do not have to complete the Designated Caregivers document, but we will ask for proof of relationship on enrolment (birth certificate and passports)
Alfriston College welcomes new home stay families. If you and your family are considering becoming a host family, please read the documents and fill-out the forms and contact our International Student Leader.
