Golden Bay High School does not have boarding house facilities.
International students who are accepted to the school will have a homestay arranged for them. The school approves all Homestays, and full support is provided. Payment of homestay fees is made through the school.
Homestay accommodation provides a fully furnished room, all meals and laundry.
If a student wishes to change his or her homestay family this can be arranged. Changes in homestay accommodation can only be done with the school's approval.
Each homestay student is expected to comply with the standards of behaviour as outlined by the homestay family. Each homestay family must abide by the policies and the procedures outlined in the Code of Practice for international students.
All homestay accommodation is subject to the NZ Police Vetting Service.
Any issue regarding homestay should be discussed with the International Director.
A family may arrange their own homestay, but this homestay must still have school approval. If this approval is granted the parent(s) of the student must sign the “Statement of Designated Caregiver Arrangement” document.
