Under New Zealand Ministry of Education regulations, all accommodation for international students must be approved by the school prior to completion of enrolment.


If you have nominated caregivers to look after your child during their enrolment at Somerville Intermediate School, the Principal or nominated agent will visit the home and interview the caregivers before your child is enrolled. Homestay accommodation fee is $290.00 per week.


Where students live with their parents, responsibility for the welfare of students rests with the parents outside of school hours.

(Refer to Policy on Accommodation for International Students M60.)
