On my return to Australia, I continued to bring students from Japan and looked for a competent homestay supplier. I found to my surprise that Janine had married and moved to the Cairns area. I quickly contacted her and was grateful to have her assistance again.
My business has grown from 1 program in Cairns to 3 (average of 70 students per year) with another possible program beginning in November 2019. This is partly a testament to the wonderful homestay families Banora provides. I am always certain of the quality of the families and have never been concerned about getting a list of families in a timely manner.
It is extremely difficult to find families that can accommodate student wishes and medical problems such as allergies to pets, however Banora always comes through (in particular Junko-san). I would strongly recommend them to agents and to any overseas family looking to have a safe and enjoyable educational program in Australia.
