The accommodation, care and welfare of our enrolled international students is the number one priority for Southport State High Independent Public School.

Homestay is for visiting students who want to experience the real-life Australian lifestyle by living with an Australian host family during their stay. Homestay gives visiting students the best opportunity to practice their English conversation skills in everyday life, while ensuring safe accommodation and a caring home environment. Visiting students often develop lasting friendships with their Australian host families.

For more details, refer to the Homestay Terms and Conditions for Homestay Providers (PDF,  667KB).
