Host Home Needed for Four Weeks

The Languages Learning Area has been fortunate enough to be assigned an Italian Language Assistant for the remainder of the year. The Language Assistant is an Italian university graduate sponsored by the Italian organisation COASIT. His primary role at De La Salle will be to provide support to the Italian teachers and provide an authentic language and cultural experience for our students. He will be here from the 15th April until the end of the year and we are looking for accommodation for him for the first 4 weeks of his stay; after that he will need to find a more permanent place to live. If anyone is willing to have him stay with them or have family/friends who would like to host him, please contact me by the 1st April. My contact details are: or 95082332.

Thank you,
