Parent – Teacher – Board Relationship

The function of the Living Way Christian School is based on honest, open humble relationship with one another through the fear of God, being guided by Ephesians 4: 2-3:

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient bearing with one another in love.

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bonds of peace. 

This vital relationship must be developed and maintained at all costs. Criticising each other in the presence of children or others should always be avoided.

If difficulties or misunderstandings should occur, the Biblical steps of Matthew 18: 15-17 are to be taken:

‘If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you.

If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.

But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.

If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church…’

If the problem is still not able to be resolved, it becomes a Principal or Board matter. 

 By love serve one another.

Galatians 5:13
