Hello. I am applying for my son, who is 15 years old. We live in Nelson but he is coming to attend school in Wellington as he takes part in the Phoenix Football Academy. We are looking for a Home Stay in the Wellington College Zone - this covers quite a big area though.
My son has been boarding at school for 2 years and is used to being away from home; he is quite independent and able to manage himself well, he is friendly and no trouble. He is very committed to his football and does well at school too. His days are quite full and he has transport provided for football, and so doesn't need a lot doing for him, and we keep in touch with him daily to be ready to help him if he is having any trouble organizing himself.
We are really just looking for a homestay where he will be comfy and safe, and have people to live with who are friendly and just check in with him to check he is OK. He is able to get his own breakfast. He can cook for himself if that works for you some days, or he is happy to eat with you and help with preparing or clearing up.
I hope I covered everything there! But please let me know if you have any questions at all. Thank you so much.
