Last Wednesday, it was our privilege to hold a celebration night to thank our wonderful homestay families for their tremendous contribution to our school this year. We had 18 families attend the evening – each hosting at least one International student this year.
This was certainly one of the more challenging years for our International students – with many watching the pandemic ravage their home countries. The extra support and care shown by our host families was greatly appreciated.
“It would be easy to look back on 2020 and focus on the challenges,” says International Director Lauranne Croot. “But it also brought success and accomplishment from within our international cohort, and we are very proud of the way our robust and resilient students continued to track above expectation right throughout 2020. That, in no small way, is due to the support and encouragement of our homestay families. The value of a safe and enjoyable learning and living environment can’t be underestimated.”
We wish all of our host families a wonderful and relaxing Christmas and New Year holiday.
