Homestay visits 2015


​In July/August of this year, Cleveland District State High School will be hosting a number of short term study tours (1 - 2 weeks) from countries such as China, Taiwan and Japan.  We are looking for local families to host students or teachers.  This is a fantastic opportunity to experience another culture and make an international friend.  All host families will require a valid Blue Card but this can be arranged through the school at no cost you.

Homestay families receive payment of $36 per night per student (tax free) to cover the cost of student's meals, accommodation and access to all amenities.  Placements are either single or double (1 or 2 students in each home).

Cleveland District State High School also hosts long term international students from a variety of countries including Brazil, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Finland, Japan, China, Austria and Belgium, with students staying anywhere from one term to 4 years.  Payment for these students is currently $263 per week per student (tax free).  For long term students, families ideally need to be located within the Cleveland High catchment area.
