Epilepsy North Shore Support Trust Database

1 in 50 New Zealanders live with epilepsy.  The aim of the Epilepsy Foundation is to raise funds to fully support those living with epilepsy, and their families.  To this end the Foundation has instigated the Epilepsy North Shore Support Trust supporting people in the North Shore and Rodney region.  To ensure we can fully support you, it is currently building a database of people within this region living with the condition.  To ‘have your say’, be updated on what is happening within the Foundation and the Epilepsy North Shore Support Trust, the support on offer and upcoming events, please join our database by emailing Foundationepilepsy@gmail.com with your contact details.  Thank you, Janine Morton, Membership Manager, Epilepsy North Shore Support Trust

Homestay Thank you!

Thank you so much to all the families that put up their hands to host two Japanese girls that will spend time at our school at the end of August. I was overwhelmed with your readiness to help out and invite a young girl to be part of your families for two weeks. 

Very quickly I found myself in the situation of having to turn down people, because we found two homestay families. If that has happened to you, I hope you are not disappointed and I would love to match you up with an international student in the future, if you are still interested. In any case I am keeping you in mind in case I need further backup.

You Gulf Harbour people are simply lovely!

Thank you again from Dagmar Goodall and Gulf Harbour School!

Urgent Help Needed Please

We are desperately looking for two families that can host a Japanese girl, aged 14 or 15, from August 20th to September 4th. 
If you are interested and have a room for the student in your house, children living with you - at least one of them has to be a girl - please, contact d.goodall@ghs.school.nz as soon as possible.
The homestay fee is $220.00 per week - 7 nights.
You don't have to have children at Gulf Harbour School, but you should be able to drop off and pick up the student in the morning and the afternoon.
