This style of accommodation is available for any student, but is compulsory for students under 17 years of age. All homestays are vetted by Canning College staff and hosts must have a Working With Children card. Under a new Department fo Education directive, ALL under 18 aged students at WA Government education institutions must use homestay services provided by Australian Homestay Network (AHN). The services can be accessed by students and education agents at http://homestaynetwork.org/ . The main reason for the change is the excellent insurance cover provided by AHN.
