The inbound basics

You can have an exchange student from Tahiti to stay with you for four weeks in July and August. It can give your French a real boost.

The group of exchange students will arrive at the beginning of the school holidays. They will have two weeks of school with you before they return home. New Zealand host families can pick up their student and farewell them at Auckland airport or at the airport nearest their home. We will arrange and pay for students’ domestic flights where necessary.

Your exchange student will expect no special treatment. They will behave like a member of your family and go to school with you. They will not need their own room. They expect to share with you – as long as you are of the same gender, of course!

Ask your parents or guardians, then get a permission note to your French teacher as soon as you can. We can only place students in schools that are signatories to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students.

We need to know about offers to host by 15 May.


When is it?

The next Inbound exchange group arrives in July 2016.
