by Simon Clarke

In May & July this year we will be welcoming a new group of exchange students from all over the world. These students are really excited to live with a Kiwi host family, attend a local school for 3, 5 or 10 months and live like a local. As we plan for their arrival, we are keen to hear from suitable families who might be interested to host a student and have a truly rewarding experience for the whole family.
