New Policy for GCS Student Housing ~

Dear Parents,

Thank you for partnering with Grace Christian School in your child’s educational journey. In partnering with parents, our approach to education is holistic, aspiring to graduate students who are spiritually, academically, emotionally, physically and socially mature.

We believe that Christian education promotes a Biblical relationship within the family, the church, and the Christian school. According to the Scriptures, parents are responsible to God for the education of their children. As it instructs in Deuteronomy 11:19,

“You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up.”

The cooperative effort of the home and the Christian school is needed to fulfill that responsibility, regardless of the student’s age.  

Parents/legal guardians have the primary responsibility for the care, well-being, education, discipline, and counselling of their children. It is with this is mind that GCS students are not permitted to attend GCS while living outside of their parents/legal guardian/s home, whether as a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or international student, regardless of the student’s age. Students may not live alone or without parental/legal guardian supervision for any length of time as a student of GCS.

All students, regardless of citizenship status, must live with their parent/legal guardian or an approved GCS homestay family. GCS chooses hosts who will provide the same Biblical values, caring environment, and personal attention they would ask a host family to provide for their own children: a comfortable, healthy, and supportive home that promotes cultural understanding and provides opportunities for learning, growth, and development.

Students, regardless of citizenship status, that are in need of a short-term (no more than 3 months) homestay must:

  • Notify the school
  • Stay with an approved GCS home stay
  • Have a letter of permission from their parent/legal guardian
  • Pay an additional GCS school fee of $500 per month for added responsibility of the school and staff (in addition to the homestay fee).

感谢您和GCS在学生的教育上合作。在与家长的合作中,我们的教育方法是整体的,有志于在精神上,学业上,情感上,身体上和社会上培养出成熟的学生。

我们相信基督教教育提倡了一个和家庭,教堂,和基督教学校的圣经般的联系。圣经上写道,家长们有从上帝而来的对学生教育负责的责任。在Deuteronomy 11:19 (申命记 11:19)所说: “也要教训你们的儿女,无论坐在家里,行在路上,躺下,起来,都要谈论”。

无论学生的年龄,家庭和基督教学校需要努力合作履行这一责任。

家长/法定监护人对子女有首要的责任,在关爱,健康,教育,纪律,和指导上。正因为如此,参加GCS的学生不能和除了家长/法定监护人外的人家居住。无论学生是加拿大公民,永久居民还是国际学生,否则不能参加GCS。 作为GCS 的学生,学生不能单独居住或者没有家长/法定监护人的监督。

所有的学生,无论公民身份,都必须和父母/监护人/GCS所批准的寄宿家庭住在一起。GCS选择的都是与学校有相同圣经价值观,关爱学生住宿安静和提供关注的家庭, 就如同对待自己的孩子一样。他们会为住宿学生提供:舒适,健康和支持的家庭,促进文化理解,帮助学习,成长,发展。

学生,不论公民身份,凡是在homestay家庭住超过3个月以上,都必须:

  • 通知学校
  • 和GCS同意的homestay
  • 有家长/法定监护人签字的同意书
  • 每月支付额外500刀的GCS学费 (学校和老师的责任费)(在住宿费之外)
