Shirley Boys’ High School International

Shirley Boys’ High School and Avonside Girls’ High School are looking for caring Host families for the 2023 school year.

We have short term programs from Korea and Thailand arriving in Term 1 for approximately 2 weeks. We have students who need a 8 to 10 week placement in Term1 and students who are looking for year placements. We are specifically looking for one family who is gluten free and would like to host.

Homestay Payment is $290 per week.

For more information please contact Leanne Russ, Shirley Boys’ High School at or Lisa Garrett, Avonside Girls’ High School at
