I am the Homestay Manager for Tauranga Boys’ College; it is my privilege to support our International students by establishing supportive and caring homestay families. My job is to ensure that our homestay families and our students have all the information they need to have a great homestay experience. I am responsible for screening all homestay families and making sure we are compliant with the (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practise 2016- School. By maintaining regular communication with students and homestay families, I am able to help with any issue big or small. It is a great experience hosting an International student and I am so pleased to be part of the International program here at Tauranga Boys’ College.
