The Hebe Adventures Boarding School Guardianship Programme

If you are planning to send your son or daughter to Boarding School in Ireland and do not have a family friend that can act as a guardian you will need to avail of the services of a guardianship organisation such as hebe Adventures.

As well as our shorter summer stays, HEBE Adventures offer a Guardianship Programme for International Students attending Day or Boarding schools in Ireland.

Students can attend school for a term or full academic year in Ireland. With the hebe Guardianship service, you get a premium, personal service – and our number one priority is to ensure that your child is safe and happy for the duration of their stay.

During their time in boarding school, a Guardian Host Family will be appointed who will be responsible for taking care of your son or daughter during exeat weekend and school holidays. With our Guardianship service you will get to meet your child's host family online prior to arriving in Ireland and in person when you are bringing your son or daughter to the school at the start of term.

A Home From Home

As part of the guardianship service, your child will be placed with one of our friendly and caring host families that will provide a “home from home” for your child. All host families are police vetted and personally vetted by us. Great care is taken to match students to a host family, with children of a similar age.

Hebe Adventures guardianship service provides ongoing care to all our students as they settle into life and their academic year in Ireland. We arrange all the practical elements such as sourcing the uniform, books etc so all students are ready for the Irish educational system. We also act as the local in-country contact in case of emergency.
