Freyberg High School places a great importance on the welfare and care of all international students. It is a condition of enrolment that all international students live in homestay accommodation provided or approved by the school.

Homestay families provide excellent care for students, and each family is carefully selected and matched with each student. We have two experienced homestay managers, who are dedicated to placing and monitoring students in homestay families. All homestays have been vetted by the Police and are visited on a regular basis by the homestay managers to ensure their continuing suitability. All students receive the highest level of homestay and pastoral support possible while studying at Freyberg High School.

In a homestay, students are provided with:

  • A private bedroom which includes a bed, a desk or table, desk lamp, chair, heater, wardrobe and adequate storage for clothes and personal items.
  • Bed linen and towels
  • Three meals a day. The midday meal on Monday to Friday is a packed lunch which may be prepared by the student or host.
