Accommodation / Homestays

At Orewa College all international students are placed in homestay accommodation. The only exceptions are those living with a parent or approved Designated Caregiver.

In accordance with the Education Code of Practice, all host families are police checked and the homes assessed by the International Department prior to placement of students.

Visits are made twice a year to families hosting International Students and the International Department meets with students at least four times during the year to assess their homestay placement.
