International Student Program Homestay
We provide homestay to these students while they are enrolled at the school. Length of stay can vary from one to three years. Study Abroad students enrol at Strathmore Secondary College for 3 to 12 months. As of January 2023, students pay $320 per week for accommodation and 3 meals a day. This money does not have to be declared on a tax return as it is considered “reimbursement” not income.
We are looking for families that can provide a safe, comfortable and caring environment whilst the students are studying at Strathmore.
If you are interested in becoming a Homestay family please contact Jan Maas, Homestay Coordinator on 0414 863 047 or Cathy Di Battista, International Student Manager, on 0417 301 835 to discuss further.

Student Attendance on Compass
Parents and guardians must update Compass Attendance in advance if a student will be leaving the school early for appointments, or for any other reason.
Students cannot leave the school without parent or guardian approval and must not leave the school grounds without signing out at the General Office, before they leave.
Students arriving late to school or returning from appointments, must also sign in at the General Office, before going to class and an explanatory note on Compass is required.
If parents and guardians are unable to update Compass due to technical difficulties, they should telephone the Junior School Attendance Officer in the General Office for assistance.
