Together We Shine


Our curriculum has been developed over the last three decades to produce a quality cyclic approach using traditional methods of education in conjunction with the latest in best-practice teaching. Sunrise Christian School implements all areas of the Australian Curriculum through a Biblical lense with the aim of successfully educating your child and guiding them toward personal excellence. We also pride ourselves on developing leadership attributes within students to help them in whatever walk of life God has planned for them. We aim to continuously improve and maintain the best in teaching and learning practices for the development of your child.

Every student is given the opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary for the transition to secondary and tertiary education and recognise their true  potential within the wider world.

At the core of our philosophy is the understanding that faith is inherent in every aspect of life. Therefore, we do not teach ‘Bible’ or ‘Christian Studies’ as a separate subject. To do so is to imply that faith is separate to the rest of life. Instead, each morning starts with class devotions, or an assembly where the truth of the Bible will be explored and the relevance of it discussed. Lessons in all other subjects then bring opportunities to draw attention to the character of God, or to expound the intricacies of His creation. Finally, the school day concludes with reflection time and opportunities for thanksgiving.

We encourage our teachers to be a collaborative extension of your home and make the most of those ‘teachable moments’ to train and reinforce moral behaviour, to honour and glorify God, and to instil a healthy and rounded Biblical world view.

Early Learning Centre

Since 2011 the Sunrise Christian School Morphett Vale ELC has been providing an Early Learning Curriculum that prepares children for school by developing a love for learning. We do this through a faith-based culture, family environment and Biblical world view that underpins everything that we do.

Our ELC has qualified and highly experienced staff who have a passion for nurturing and educating children. The Director of the ELC leads the team providing a Pre-school/Kindy programme (for ages 4-5 years) as well as long day care for children from 3 years of age.

Come in for a coffee and chat, we would love to meet you and show you around our Centre.

Junior School

Our Junior School families share a close bond with our committed and caring staff, all of whom invest deeply in your child’s wellbeing. We aim to be an extension of the home, offering faith-based encouragement and support to all Junior School students. A Biblical worldview forms the foundation for rich and diverse learning and allows students to develop enhanced thinking skills, enthusiastically engaging in the joys of discovery.

By building Christian character in your son or daughter we strive to equip them to fulfil their academic, emotional, social and physical potential. Your child will be encouraged to shine and fill out God’s unique design for their lives.

Secondary School Pathway

Through a partnership with Temple Christian College we are happy to provide your family with a pathway into Secondary Schooling.

Temple has a campus at Mile End, Paralowie, and a new Middle School at Sunrise Christian School Marion.
