HOMESTAY & CAREGIVERS
Mentone Grammar requires enrolled international students in Years 10 – 12 to obtain Homestay accommodation approved by the School or live with a parent.
Students are not permitted to live independently or without adult supervision and are required to have a caregiver for the duration of their enrolment. Younger international students must live with parent(s).
Mentone Grammar requires all international students who are not being cared for in Australia by a parent or suitable relative, to have a caregiver, living in Melbourne, to provide support additional to, but not in place of, the support and counselling that Mentone Grammar normally provides to all students.
These support services may include translation services to assist with communication to students and parent(s)/legal guardian(s).
This requirement for additional paid support services is not a government or student visa requirement but is a requirement of Mentone Grammar for the duration of a student’s enrolment.
