To create an inspiring, well-rounded learning experience, students at every location and in every year level, are offered extra-curricula opportunities in team sports and instrumental tuition.
We provide a range of sports for your child to try out and take part in, our sports program allowing active learning. Your child may also participate in a number of inter-school events including athletics carnivals and sporting competitions. Our school wide Aquatics Program also allows students the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of swimming and water safety, as well as snorkeling, water sports and water polo in partnership with Water Polo SA.
Music & Dance
A range of musical tuition options are offered at each location and are run by qualified and skilled teachers, all of whom are passionate about their discipline. Our school aims to integrate music and dance into the everyday of school education as it provides a creative way to learn and enjoy life together.
At Sunrise Christian School Fullarton, we place a very high value on integrating with our community, both to be a blessing to others and to give our students the opportunity to grow alongside others. You will find us at the Whyalla Show, engaging with a community Choir and regularly making visits to local aged care facilities to present concerts and spend time with the members. As a School, we also aim to develop relationships and help others in need, whether it be through providing a helping hand or a fundraiser to support financial difficulties.
We also warmly welcome the involvement of parents and families in our school community. This may be through regular participation in school programmes, helping out at key events, or by taking part in parent groups.
A focus of our education program and community is built around missions and fundraising. Ever since it’s beginnings, Sunrise has sought opportunities to bless and support people in need.
In 2010 Sunrise started a school in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. Sunrise Bethel Christian School currently has over 300 students and 35 staff. Each staff member is a national of PNG apart from the principal and her husband, Mr. and Mrs Cook.
The Sunrise Schools and community here in South Australia continue to provide ongoing support prayerfully and through fundraising activities each year. Our desire that our student’s genuine generosity radiates from a heart of love and from lives that are blessed. Students recognise that being generous does not just bring joy to those who are the recipients of generosity but also to the giver themselves.
As part of the Primary School program, students participate in a series of school camps that have been developed as a journey that builds confidence and relationships. These camps are activity based and help students build life skills with a focus on outdoor education. This series starts in Grade 3 with a sleepover at school and progresses each year with camps at Mylor Adventure Camp, Adare and then this culminates in a trip to Canberra for the Grade 6 class.
Each year, our Grade 6 students have the opportunity to travel to Canberra with other students from the Sunrise Christian School community. On this investigative camp students get the chance to learn about our nation’s capital and politics. It is a very significant camp that comes at a time where students are preparing to enter middle school.
