THE ROLE OF THE GUARDIAN

At Students International, we consider the role of the Guardian to be:

 

  • To act on behalf of the parents, attending meetings with school staff and reporting back their comments to the parents.

 

  • To help students adapt to their new life and school regulations.

 

  • To generally take an active part in the student's school life.

 

  • To give help and advice over examination choices and university selection, including assistance with the completion of application forms.

 

  • To keep regular contact with the student during term time and assist with any problems that may arise.

 

  • To monitor out of school activities.

 

  • To organise suitable home stay accommodation with native speaking host families for exeat, half term breaks, or longer (holiday) periods.

 

  • To arrange flight reservations and tickets when asked.

 

  • To arrange collection and/or transport from school, host family or airport at the beginning and end of all holiday periods.

 

  • To be available to both students and parents 24 hours a day in case of emergency.
