Host family requirements

Our host families come in all shapes and sizes; single parent households, empty-nesters, couples with no children, and families with small children or with teenagers. You are expected to provide a bed, breakfast and dinner Monday to Friday and also a light lunch at weekends and most importantly, a stable, caring environment. We ask that our homestays are around 1 hour travel time by public transport (trains or buses).

The school address is 20 Queen Street, Perth, WA 6000.
