A constant topic of conversation for international schools around the world is homestays versus hotel stays when traveling for competitions. The conversation surrounding hotel stays versus homestays has become a bit more challenging as safeguarding concerns came to the forefront, but many remained in their respective camps. Is the pandemic now the absolute end of homestays as we know it?

This episode of Global Take welcomes Chris Mott (Athletic Director, International School Bangkok), Dave Horner (Director of Student Life & Leadership, The International School of Belgrade), and Matt Fleming (Athletics Director, American International School Budapest). Hosted by Nick DeForest (Assistant Director of the Events Office, American International School Vienna).
