Homestay Program​

Burpengary State Secondary College is looking for families within our community to join our homestay program. This is a truly rewarding and memorable experience for the whole family.

Homestay is also a wonderful opportunity for international students to experience the ‘Australian’ way of life. They become part of the local community and have a fantastic opportunity to practise their English in a safe and caring home environment.

International students often develop lifelong friendships with their homestay families.

Family Requirements

Your responsibility as a host family will include:

  • A clean home with a safe, secure and adequate sleeping arrangements .
  • Treating the student as part of the family, involve them in afterschool and family activities.
  • Supervise appropriately (this includes before and after school supervision)
  • Communicate with the student in English and in a friendly manner
  • Three meals daily as well as snacks
  • Supervised transport to and from school

Please note that there is a small payment to host families to assist with added costs.


International students will be attending Burpengary State Secondary College every day as part of an Education QLD International Study Tour or long term stay program.
