Newsletter - 8th November 2019

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Whānau

2020 International Students & Homestays Needed

Next year we are having 12 Japanese students; 8 of them for term one and 2 of them for the whole year. Among them, 4 students still need homes to stay.

They will be here for term one arriving late January and leaving on the 28th of March. They are 14 or 15 years old but 3 of them will be placed in year 9 by their Japanese school's request. The homestay fee is $280 per week.

If you or any members of your family are interested in having one of the girls, would you let me know? It would be greatly appreciated.
