Housing – Students
For the first two nights of the Student Forum (24 and 25 June 2016), your son/student will be billeted with families of St. George’s students.
Staying with host families at the schools we visit is a St. George’s tradition and one that we reciprocate when other schools visit us. It offers the experience of being in another family’s home to share their culture and customs, and the opportunity to form individual and family friendships beyond school walls. Your student/son will always be staying in a home with at least one other Saints’ student and will have the contact information for the Forum Director (and alternate faculty) at all times.
During the second of the two nights there, he will be having dinner with his host family either in their home or out at a local restaurant. He will likely be invited to join in the daily life, routine and activities of the family, which may involve new and unfamiliar experiences for him.
- We will brief the students about what to expect, how to behave, and what to do should they feel uncomfortable at any time while staying with a host family.
- We will forward contact details of host families to you once we have them, and it very common for emails/calls to be exchanged between these two families prior to the Student Forum.
- We will give host families details of our expectations for Student Forum students’ behavior, and details of activities to which you have consented.
- We will also share medical information to host families, as provided by you. Please ensure that information on your son’s medical form is up to date. If there is anything else you would specifically like us to share with host families, please let us know.
During the final three nights (26–28 June) the Students will be staying in the dormitory on the St. George’s Junior School campus.
Housing – Mentors
The mentors will have housing at Harker Hall for the duration of the conference (nights of June 24-28th inclusive), which is included in their fee.
