St Stephen’s School is turning traditional boarding arrangements on their head with a new Home Away From Home (HAFH) program that provides students from regional WA with a comfortable homestay environment in Perth while attending the northern suburbs school. “Being a long way from home can be quite daunting for regional students and their families, so we structured our HAFH program with that in mind, ensuring it meets strict guidelines for peace of mind and fosters a strong relationship between the student, their family in regional WA, the host family and the School,” St Stephen’s School Principal Mrs Donella Beare said. Thanks to a unique partnership with Talkabout Homestay, each regional student is matched with a local host family, according to a range of criteria, interviews and check-in processes, which gives them their own space in a home environment amongst a host family.
