Waitakere College partners with Lake Panorama Student Homestays to provide caring homestay families for our International Students.  All homestays are visited and thoroughly screened, including Police checked before students are placed in the home.  Lake Panorama provides training and ongoing support to host families and students are monitored to ensure a positive experience.

Should a student wish to live with family friends or relatives, this is referred to as a Designated Caregiver.  All Designated Caregivers must be approved by the College and are visited and Police Checked as part of this process.  Designated Caregivers are visited at least once a year and are expected to attend Teacher/Parent interviews and provide transport for their student to school events.
