South Korean Students – Homestay Program

Craigburn Primary School has the opportunity to host a small group of six South Korean students (specifically from Cheongju) in early Term 3 for a period of 3 weeks, from 31 July – 18 August 2018. 

The Korean Schools Study program is centrally coordinated by International Education Services, within the Department of Education and Child Development (DECD). Up to 10 schools in all will be taking on board 60 Korean students aged 10-13 years.

We would like to know if there are any Craigburn families who would be willing to host a homestay visit for a South Korean student/s. Please note details below:

  • homestay families are reimbursed $40.00 per student, per night.
  • homestay families are required to have adults screened (DSCI clearance).
  • homestay families are fully briefed re expectations / protocols / information.
  • South Korean students will attend Craigburn for 11 days and through their homestay visit will have the opportunity to visit a wildlife park and a chance to visit the city for some sight-seeing/shopping.

In the first instance, we are seeking expressions of interest from families of students in Years 4-7 who would be prepared to host a Korean student/s for a homestay visit. Note families may take up to 2 students.

To offer your expression of interest or if you have any questions, please email the school on by no later than midday, Monday 26th March.

Thank you

Paul Luke – Principal
