My name is Anna and I'm enquiring on behalf of my step daughter who has been accepted to Rangi for her final year 13 year next year.
We are farming at Springfield and are wanting to see if there is anyone who might consider housing her for 4 school nights a week (Give or take). She has her learners but at this stage we are ferrying her everywhere. That might change next year once she gets her restricted licence. (I also renovate houses in Chch but it's too sporadic for me to be able to provide her for a consistent base for the year).
Alice is a lovely helpful farm girl, currently living with her father and myself. Her older brother has left home and she has a much younger 10 yr old brother who lives in Chch. She enjoys company but as teens do, she goes to her room a lot more these days. It's not uncommon for her to be off to bed by 7pm!
It's going to be a big adjustment next year but she is really looking forward to the school year ahead. Alice is very arty, relaxed, and confident (but not overly so).
I hope that this might be something that might work for you and your family too.
I look forward to hearing from you.
