Before leaving everyone is given a Homestay Manual (includes students, teachers and homestay parents) Within this there is an Emergency section listing contacts for doctors, hospitals, Embassy contacts, school contacts. When the Homestay Application is completed a copy of the form is filed and retained by the teachers.
All participates are required to have compulsorily Travel Insurance.
On the Homestay Application Form consent is asked to be given by parents, in the unlikely event there is an accident, to admit to hospital and treat the student with appropriate medication as required. There is a specific section for health asking about any allergies and any medications being taken. (Should necessary medications be required please ensure they accompanied with a letter from the prescribing doctor in English. This will ensure smooth clearance of customs)
