Homestay Accommodation

The school selects very carefully the families who offer homestay accommodation to International Students. Students will be placed with a New Zealand homestay family who will care for them and ensure they are well supported during their enrollment at Evans Bay Intermediate School.

Living with a Designated Person

 The parent of an international student can nominate a close family friend or relative to take care of their child during their study in New Zealand. This is the person that the student will live with during their time at Evans Bay Intermediate School and will have the overall responsibility of the students' day-to-day care. Please note that a Designated Caregiver is NOT a Legal Guardian.
