Private Boarding for school students

thislte, Nov 5, 12:24am
Hi there, does anyone know of an agency or similar in Christchurch that organises private weekly boarding for high school students (non international). Cheers

hi there, curiosity, why would you need board for students when you live in Rangiora, there are buses and school buses ? that would be my option for my students , though mine are grown up now, home is better than boarding, not getting at you, just asking

Hi, I don't live in Rangiora, its just the closet town I could pick for TM, there is no bus form where I live, cheers.

May I ask why you dont send them to a school with boarding facilities?

The boarding house is full.

Thats unusual for the south island. We have our child at boarding school and were told that most south island ones have space but the north island ones have waiting lists.

Apologies if you've already done this but have you tried asking CGHS if they can give you a contact. If they have accepted your girls into the school it's in their interest to help you with this also.

Ask for an ad to be put in the school newsletter or on their website - there may well be a family with a daughter there who is willing to take on a private boarder.

This. We have done homestays in the past, mostly overseas either students or teachers or short term holiday stay, but once boarded a student from a local high school. Most high schools have someone who organises and vets people who want to host or board a student. You could advertise for yourself, but you would have to be careful.
