Homestay Information



Many of our International Students are hosted by existing students of Thornbury High School and their families. Becoming a Homestay Family can be a tremendously enriching experience, forging life-long bonds and cultural ties between both host family and their guest. Experience your city through the eyes of a stranger, and expand your family’s understanding of new cultures, new languages, and new learning opportunities by hosting an international student for the duration of their stay.

Homestay families are granted a bursary of $330 per week to help cover the living costs of housing an international students.
