Student wellbeing and welfare is at the centre of all we do at Hills College. For our international, Interstate and local Secondary students, we provide our own quality homestay program.  


Local families provide a vital link in developing our students as global citizens. With this in mind, the Hills College Homestay program strives to provide engaging, caring, and meaningful interactions and experiences for our homestay students and families. Homestay families are an important part of our students’ lives, and we seek to select families which show a keen and real interest in developing a global perspective in their own home. 

Our homestay program endeavours to provide a safe and supportive service environment for children and young people through:  

  • Screening and Blue cards for +18 homestay family members  
  • Regular house visits  
  • Open-door policies for addressing student or homestay concerns  
  • Documented procedures for managing risk.
