Later this year we will again host some visiting students from Singapore. We have done this in the past on a number of occasions, which we have found to be a very beneficial experience for all parties. As well as hosting students at school, we are looking for families to open their home for three nights at the beginning of November. (Exact dates to be confirmed).
We hope a billeting family would be able to:
• Provide meals and accommodation for your student.
• Join us for an early summer barbecue at one of the local beaches.
• Arrange travel to and from school in the same way as your child(ren) .
The main objective of this is to provide a glimpse into the life of a typical Kiwi home and provide some opportunities to try some memorable activities as part of your family. This is a billeting arrangement rather than a homestay arrangement so there is no provision for an allowance. Should you have any questions about this opportunity please do not hesitate to contact us by emailing: email@example.com
Related to this we are in the very early stages of planning another trip to Singapore in 2013, open to year 8 & 9 students (7 & 8 this year) Stay tuned for more information through the website, newsletters and assemblies. The purpose of this visit is to provide the students with a wide range of experiences which will give them an insight into life in a modern Asian country. At the same time they will be experiencing the geographical, sociological and historical environment of an important New Zealand partner and accordingly building an understanding and appreciation of our Asian neighbour.
