John Paul College operates its own Homestay Accommodation Program with carefully selected and government approved host families. All registered and approved Homestay Providers hold a current government Blue Card and are thoroughly screened prior to placement to ensure their suitability and eligibility.

Our Homestay Providers have become an integral part of our success and provide international students with a safe and caring family environment for students to learn and develop. Students are supplied with three meals a day, their own bedroom with study facilities and laundry facilities. Homestay families provide transport to and from school and co-curricular, or students catch a bus where available.

The International Student Extended Day Program is an integral part of our commitment to providing comprehensive welfare support. We understand the diverse needs of our international students, and our bilingual staff in Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese are ready to assist with any issues, ensuring the best support.

The College’s boutique boarding facility, Fenton Village, is a co-educational home to forty-eight Year 7-12 students from a diverse range of backgrounds and nationalities. Students are housed in individual residential homes which accommodate eight students in twin share rooms with en-suites. Each home has a shared lounge zone. Sharing is housed according to gender and age.

The fully air-conditioned facilities include individual kitchens in each residence, dining and recreation areas, outdoor entertainment areas and a supervised Learning Centre. All meals are supplied.

Our staff have boarding expertise at senior levels, which allows us to ensure the highest level of residential care in a safe and nurturing learning environment. The Head of Boarding is joined by our Assistant Head of Boarding, House Mother and four Tutors who live on site.
