Homebush Boys High School’s Interact Club continued on with its strong donation tradition as part of raising funds for worthy causes. The Interact Club gives students the opportunity to do work for both their school and the wider community. Many events have been organised by the Interact Club student leadership body. Complementing these events, students recently organised a highly successful sausage sizzle lunch.
OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS TO EXPERIENCE ANOTHER CULTURE, MAKE NEW FRIENDS AND IMPROVE THEIR LANGUAGE STUDIES AT HOME
In January 2016 we will be receiving exchange students from Argentina, Bolivia, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden and the USA. Our new arrivals will live with a host family and attend a local school for 3, 5 or 10 months. As we plan for their arrival, we are keen to hear from suitable families who might be interested to host a student.
Host families come in all shapes and sizes, backgrounds and ages. To this end, we would be grateful if you would place a notice in your newsletter or mention it on your website. You can download the newsletter notice here in Word format or as a PDF.
