Accommodation

For students who will not be living with a family member, Moreton Bay College arranges a suitable, caring homestay family who will assist you with settling into life in Australia. This placement will be organised through the College. Homestay families are kind and caring people who provide a home for a visiting overseas student. Living with a family is an invaluable part of the learning experience. Students have their own bedroom with study facilities, have all meals supplied, washing and ironing facilities and access to transport to and from school and co-curricular activities. All homestay families are Blue Card checked and a 24-hour hotline is available. For more information on homestay, please refer to Homestay Programme on our website.
