    Host families will receive a weekly payment, along with support and training to assist with hosting.

    Some requirements are that hosts should have a well maintained home, a spare room for a student and enough space to cater for another resident in your home. We look for hosts who are interested in sharing their home, embracing a different culture and offering occasional support. This can be a very rewarding experience.

  • Glasses for the Pacific Islands

    Monday, 10 July 2023

    A big thank you to all who have contributed over the years.

    Once again we are collecting any unwanted spectacles (distance, reading, and sunglasses) for Voluntary Ophthalmic Services Overseas (VOSO), which provides eye care to the Pacific Islands. The group travel annually to the Islands, performing eye tests and simple eye surgery, and where appropriate redistribute glasses to those who require them, but who would otherwise not have access to them.

    If you have any unwanted glasses, this is a very worthy cause.

    Please drop off/send any glasses to c/o Gordon Hudson, ORAC, 107 St David Street, Dunedin Campus
