On Monday July 20th a visiting group of Chinese students from Chongqing province will visit our school to experience life in an Australian school and live the lifestyle of an Australian family.

We are seeking homestay provisions (basically a bed) for 4 nights.

The homestay buddies will travel each day to and from Collingwood with your son or daughter.  Generally no special dietary requirements or activities are needed as the student will be seeking to observe a typical week with an Australian family. If your son or daughter would like to be part of this cultural exchange program then please email me asap perichon.dale.d@edumail.vic.gov.au with an expression of interest. Families will be reimbursed for out of pocket expenses and visiting students will  be issued with Myki cards if needed. Same sex shared accommodation is acceptable.

Our visitors will arrive next Monday afternoon July 20th and depart after a closing ceremony Friday Lunchtime on  July 24th. I would like to thank the families who have already offered assistance but we still require homestay provisions for 9 boys aged 14-16 years. These students attend Chongqing Bachuan International College. English levels are expected to be very good.
