Home Stay Opportunity

We are reaching out to our Palliser families to see if they may be interested in becoming a home stay family for our International Student program.  We currently have a group of 5 students and one chaperone arriving from Suzhou, China on March 20th.  They will be attending school at R.I. Baker in Coaldale and will be here until the end of the school year (leaving on June 17th). 

We are still looking for a home(s) for two of our Grade 5 boys.  One of the program requirements for the group is that that family(ies) preferably have school-aged children in the home.  Palliser will pay our home stay families $750 per student per month. 

If you are able to host these students or possibly becoming a home stay family for any of our future international students  and being added to the home stay data base, please contact Barb McDonald me either via email at or by phone (403-328-4111) as soon as possible.  She can also be reached on her cell phone at 403-382-9499.

We have had many families that have and still are participating in our Home Stay program and have found this to be an enjoyable and enriching experience for their entire family.  To have these children become part of your family during their stay is equally as rewarding and enriching for them.
