Community Life

A positive focus on community is an integral part of our school. It is a reflection of how Jesus taught us to live; by loving Him and caring for all. 

Your child will be guided towards helping those less fortunate, with the chance to engage with community groups and agencies,  ultimately developing a more holistic view of the world. By building authentic relationships with the society around us, we can all grow together.  

We also warmly welcome the involvement of parents and families in our school community. This may be through regular participation in school programme helping out at key events, or by taking part in parents’ groups.

 We are always happy to chat with families about how they can contribute to the Sunrise school community.

Parent Involvement

Sunrise benefits from an active community of parents and loved ones who are involved in every aspect of school life. Our school community welcomes new families, allowing them to them feel a part of the Sunrise Christian School community from day-one. Parent groups are also involved in organising events and activities that draw families closer and enrich the fabric of our school. As well as a public Facebook Page, Morphett Vale parents are also able to join a closed group upon enrolment. This group is for enrolled families and provides a forum to celebrate, share and ask questions.

Spotlight Magazine

With so much happening throughout the year around the various Sunrise Christian Schools, it is often difficult for parents to keep track of the achievements, events and updates from our school family. Consequently , we produce a biannual 'Spotlight Magazine', showcasing recent activities, celebrating student accomplishments, and highlighting important information concerning our school and community.

School App

Everyone recognises the need for parents to quickly access the latest school information, and the most efficient way to do this is via a dedicated school app. We currently use the SchoolStream app, which has been specifically designed to keep parents in touch with vital school communication that’s relevant to you and your family.

To access the app, simply follow these three steps:

  1. Contact your school Office Administrator to receive your password.
  2. Download the SchoolStream app from the App Store, Google Play or by clicking here.
  3. Find and select your campus & Click on ‘Update App’
    All the school information you need should now be at your fingertips.

OSHC (Out of School Hours Care)

Sunrise Christian School Morphett Vale understands that children may need out of hours care due to the commitments of parents outside of school hours.

To meet this important need, we proudly offer a high quality, accredited Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) programme.

Our OSHC exists to support parents within the school community by offering Christ-centred care. OSHC builds upon the relationship between staff, parents and children, in a safe, nurturing and trusting environment.

Led by qualified and caring staff, the programme provides a wide range of stimulating experiences that support the unique interests and developmental needs of each child. Allocated time for homework is also offered if required. Due to growing awareness around the importance of dietary health, nutritious and enjoyable snacks are provided throughout the session. Food hygiene and table etiquette will also be emphasised to enrich the learning experience.

 The menu and the entire activity programme is displayed each week, , suggestions and contributions are encouraged. Please get in touch to have a chat about OSHC times, details and fees – including eligibility for government rebates.
