Below is a statement from the Preceptors’ College making clear our position on sex between preceptors and those they ordain.
In response to the current discussions about our history, we in the College of Public Preceptors wish to state clearly our position on sexual relations between Preceptors and those they ordain. Recognising the difficulties that have arisen in the past, it has long been our position that sexual contact between teachers and their students is undesirable.
The College meets twice a year. As part of those meetings they spend time in smaller ‘kula’ or working groups, to focus on and discuss people who are being proposed for Ordination, other matters related to the Ordination process in the areas they are responsible for, private preceptor consultations and their own practice as public preceptors.
