Host a Colombian Student
LDHSS extended family
Students from Summerhill School from Bogota Colombia are visiting this Spring!
We would like to welcome these students into our entire school community by encouraging our families to consider hosting a student in their home for the duration of their stay. Canada Homestay International (CHI) is an agency that places international students and visitors for the OCDSB. Families need to provide a bedroom, three meals per day and inclusion in the daily life of the family for the month.
A stipendium is offered for hosting duties. Interested families may apply to become hosts here or by calling 613-686-6764.
Grade 7 and 8 students of Summerhill have been in a bilingual program since the early grades and it is expected that their English will be quite proficient. For more information or for pictures of the school, please visit their website here.
