Fabulous at 55

Lifelong connections

By Guest Author

Homestay family experiences.

After hosting our first international student in 2022 (Benedetta from Italy), we welcomed Luisa, from Germany, in January of this year.

We have really enjoyed welcoming international students into our family and showing them around our beautiful state. It is a very rewarding experience to watch the students' confidence grow, making lifelong friends and increasing their English language skills.

The Mercedes College Homestay Programme is a fantastic opportunity for families and students, and I highly recommend it.

We have made life long connections with our students and are already planning Christmas in Germany in 2024!
