International Student Homestays

Carwatha College P-12 is currently looking to expand our team of homestay providers for our International Students. An outline of the responsibilities of a homestay provider are:

  • ensuring that the student has their own bed (they do not have to have their own room) and a place of their own to work and study;
  • overseeing the student’s wellbeing;
  • providing all meals including lunch. 

It is compulsory for all families (everyone in the household over the age of 18 or even frequent residents of the house) to have a current Working With Children Card. The current rate of payment for homestay providers is between $200 and $270 per week.  This may be negotiated depending upon the homestay provided.

If you are interested in the possibility of becoming a member of our homestay team, please contact Lynne Ramsay at the college for full details and an application form.


Year 12 University Extension Program

Congratulations to the following Year 12 students: Vybavi Muruga, Medina Draganovic and Nathan Damtew, who have completed their first units of the Monash and Melbourne University VCE Extension Program. This program requires students to attend tutorials and lectures at Monash or Melbourne University after school and complete online sessions. These university units are included as a component of their VCE courses and contribute to their final ATAR scores.

Vybavi and Medina are currently enrolled in Psychology at Melbourne University. They have just finished their first units and are now studying Unit 2: “Mind, Brain and Behaviour”.  Both students have been very successful in their learning outcomes. Congratulations to Vybavi, our College Captain, who achieved First Class Honours for her Unit 1 result. Both Medina and Vybavi have set goals to attend university in 2015; Vybavi planning to study Psychology and Maths at The University of Melbourne and Medina aiming to attend Monash and undertake studies in Commerce.

Nathan is enrolled in Monash University’s Mathematics Extension Study Program. He has just completed his Unit 1 studies of Linear Algebra. Nathan’s commitment to excelling in this area of study has been reflected in his excellent results and he values this opportunity as a “rewarding experience”. Nathan is now completing Unit 2 of his studies at Monash and is aiming to study Electrical Engineering or Physics at Monash in 2015.

Well done to these students and we wish them good luck in their last semester of Year 12 studies!
