Welcoming Homestays

All International Students who attend William Colenso College are placed in homestay accommodation with local families.

The Homestay Co-ordinator, Ms Jody Stent, arranges suitable homestay accommodation for all our International Students. If there are any concerns regarding the homestay situation, she deals with them.

  • End of year – a special activity programme is organised for students who are not sitting the NCEA external examinations.
