While some International Students are able to stay with relatives in surrounding areas while attending Warrandyte High School, many others will need to be placed with Homestay families. All Homestay placements are carefully selected to ensure they provide a safe and welcoming environment and are audited on a regular basis. Students are closely monitored to ensure their health and wellbeing during their stay with Australian families and no student is placed with a Homestay family who has not already been thoroughly vetted by the School including ensuring a Working with Children Check is held for all members of the household over the age of 18.
In 2018-9, the rate for homestay is approximately $315 per week. The Homestay includes, but is not limited to; three meals a day plus light snacks, internet access, a private fully furnished bedroom including study facilities such as a desk, study light and bookcase as well as assistance and support with adapting to living in Australia and away from home.
