There are two kinds of accommodation available:

1.   Homestay

A Homestay family provides a supportive environment allowing the students to integrate more easily into the New Zealand way of life. 

2.   Boarding

Boarding is subject to availability of accommodation at our boarding facility, Thomas House.  If you are interested in having your son board at Timaru Boys' High School, please contact the Director of International Students, Mr Andrew Gill by emailing
