Alphington Grammar School requires International Students enrolled at the School, regardless of age, to reside in Homestay Accommodation provided by one of the School’s registered providers and approved by the School. Alphington Grammar requires all International Students under the age of 13 to live with a parent or eligible relative who must hold the appropriate visa (subclass 590) obtained by the Department of Home Affairs.
Alphington Grammar regards living in Homestay Accommodation as an important element of the International Student experience which provides the student with support and encouragement as well as an opportunity to learn about and experience authentic Australian home life and culture, and develop friendships that often last a lifetime.
Alphington Grammar uses the following providers for our Homestay Accommodation:
Australian Homestay Network (AHN) –http://homestaynetwork.org
Student Accommodation Services (SAS) – http://student-accomodation.com.au
Alphington Grammar School accepts full responsibility for approving accommodation, support and general welfare arrangements for students of the School, and when a CAAW (Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare) is issued by Alphington Grammar, the School does not delegate, outsource or contract out that responsibility.
Our Homestay Accommodation Policy can be found in our ‘International – Policies & Procedures’ tab, and provides greater insight into the Homestay Process and the standards for the Homes in which the students under our care and supervision will reside.
