Hosting for our Hosts
We are ever grateful that Merrimac School is our U3A host but did you know the school needs hosts too?
Merrimac SHS has a long history of hosting international students and they are looking for families to join their community as a homestay family. All you need to do is provide a warm, supportive environment, a separate bedroom and three meals a day.
Host families are people who like to experience different cultures and traditions.
Host families are continually supported by their international staff and a placement fee of $272 per week per student is paid to cover food and expenses. For further information please contact Merrimac's Homestay Coordinator Kim Norfolk 55 95 8612 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
