Homestay & Host Families

As a leader in International Education in South Australia, Marryatville High School regularly hosts students (and teachers) from other countries to learn at our school for a period of time. Many are here to practise their English language and our homes are a great and practical place to do this. Through our ‘Sister School’ programs, our students also have the opportunity to visit other countries.


Being a homestay family means inviting a student to become a part of your family for the time they are here. For many students and families, this relationship can last well beyond the visit to Australia and, for some, it will lead to life-long friendships. Hosting a student from another country gives your family a wonderful opportunity to share cultures in your own home.
