All Homestays are carefully selected by our Homestay Manager. Our host families will meet you at the airport and will help you to get to school on your first day.
When studying at Westlake Boys High School international students may choose one of the following options for accommodation:
- Stay with their mother or father, who can apply for a Guardian Visa to accompany them to New Zealand. The Guardian cannot work while in New Zealand on a Guardian visa.
- Live with a school-approved homestay family.
- Stay with a family member or close family friend known to the student’s parents. This person is called a Designated Caregiver.
Students may NOT live alone, or in accommodation shared with friends, even if they are over 18.
