At Central Hawke’s Bay College we know its important to match students with host families as best we can. Staying in a Homestay gives the students a genuine unforgettable opportunity to experience what living in New Zealand with a family is really like, all the while improving their English.  ​​​​​​​

Mrs K Walker seeks out, assesses, monitors (via regular Police Vetting and Homestay visits) and guides homestay families, as per the The Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016.

Mrs Walker matches up students with host families and look after the day to day care of our International Students. I am on call 24/7 to monitor their well-being - occasionally the International Dean or Principal may cover this 24/7 role.
