Primary School at Sunrise Christian School Marion starts with transition visits for all new students. ELC children benefit from our Transition to School Program, which provides opportunities for children to meet primary school teachers and form friendships with Grade 5 buddies before they even start Reception.

Our school serves Christian parents and the community around us. Our passionate teachers and staff strive to help your child fulfil their potential academically, emotionally, socially, and physically. Students participate in fundraising activities throughout the year, one of the highlights being our Colour Fun Run on Wellbeing Day. Part of the funds raised on this day go towards our Sunrise Christian Schools in Papua New Guinea.

Sunrise Marion is a great blend of different cultures, ages, backgrounds and even a combination of two schools, with Temple Marion Middle School at the heart of our teaching hub onsite. All of this contributes to our strength as we celebrate our differences but still exhibit profound unity. Even though we form a small part of the body of Christ, we have an essential role to play in the greater Kingdom of God.

The small family setting at our school contributes to a safe and positive environment best able to encourage excellent learning outcomes. Upper Primary students engage with Temple Christian College teachers to explore different areas of the curriculum without leaving Sunrise Marion. 

Our students are well prepared for a seamless entry into their Middle and then Senior School years through a range of specialised subjects and a character development program.
