Homestay Families

Finding a warm, loving homestay is a key element in supporting our student’s life here in Melbourne. Our homestay provides our students a comfortable and safe environment to settle in. Students will be able to learn real language skills, have a deeper cultural experience and more over potential friendships/relationships that form in the process.

At Mentone Girl’s Secondary College to ensure we have quality homestay, we conduct robust assessment of our homestays and ensure they all pass the working with Children’s check. After they become our homestay hosts, school maintain regular contact with the families and we conduct site visits every term.
