HOST AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT
The Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) has welcomed International Students to their community for many years. This year LRSD has hosted students from China, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Senegal, Nigeria, Thailand, Taiwan, Germany, Russia, Vietnam, Ukraine, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Egypt, Syria, Honduras, Mexico and Singapore!
As the International Student Program continues to grow, so does our need for homestay families. A homestay family is a family who are Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents. The province of Manitoba’s International Education Department defines a homestay family as “A family unit, of at least one person, providing accommodation and sharing its home, hospitality and culture with an international student, usually for a fee”. We embrace the diversity of homestay families as each family unit may differ from one another in regards to nationality, number of adults, children, pets, etc. The commonality between families is their desire to open their homes to students from another part of the world. Our hope is the students will learn about Canadian culture and in return the homestay families will learn about the student’s culture. We hope homestay families will embrace the students as “family” who are living far away from their biological ones.
International students may study in LRSD for various lengths of time. Some students are study for as little as 3 weeks (Summer Program), some come for one semester, and some come for a whole school year and then return to complete their high school studies. Many return to continue post-secondary studies in our Manitoban and Canadian universities.
If you are considering hosting and international student and would like more information, please call the Homestay Coordinator, Evelyn Sieben, at the International Education Department. Please reach her at 204-223-0674 to discuss further details. You can also send your questions or application request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to see how this program could fit with your family. You can view full program information online at http://isp.lrsd.net where applications are available.
