Principal’s Welcome

Principal’s Welcome 2018-10-10T05:50:33+13:00



Welcome to Living Way Christian School.

We are a small private school run by an enthusiastic group of staff and parents who are passionate about providing high quality Christian education for their children.  We believe that parents have a God-given responsibility for the upbringing and education of their children.  Our role, as a school, is to help parents provide an education that not only develops their children academically, but also supports development of the character and values they need in order to live life the way that God intended us to live.

If you are new to this website, you will find most of what you need to know in the section “About Our School.”  You can also gain a feel for school life at Living Way by browsing through our “School Newspaper” section. This is mainly used for school newsletters, but also has other items about special events from time to time.  For our school calendar, click on “Upcoming Events.”

You are welcome to contact us by phone or email for more information, and visitors are welcome to come and see our school in action during our daily programme [we recommend you contact us first to check for a suitable time, just in case we happen to be out on a school trip that day!]. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Peter Thomas


Update October 2018:

Although the information above is still current, sadly, the Board of Trustees has decided that Living Way will close in December 2018, at the end of Term Four. 

Our school roll has been steadily falling over recent years and although we had hoped we might be able to re-grow the school this year, after much consideration, we believe it is time to close the school.  “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven…”  (Ecclesiastes 3:1).  We believe that the season for Living Way must come to an end and, therefore, a new season for each of us is about to begin.

The school will continue to operate as normal until the end of Term Four, finishing on Thursday, 13 December 2018, with our end of year awards ceremony for our current school families and friends, just as we have done in previous years.  

We also plan to hold an official Closing Ceremony on Saturday, 8 December 2018, to which we will invite past and present families that have been involved with Living Way throughout its 26 year history.  We want to give thanks to God for his blessings throughout the years and to acknowledge the contributions of all who have done so much for Living Way from its earliest beginnings in 1992 through until the present day.
