Middle School

Welcome to the Sunrise Christian School Naracoorte Middle School.

Sunrise Christian School Naracoorte started secondary school classes for children in Grades 7-9 in 2020. In 2022, the school is expanding its offering to Grade 10 level.

Our Middle School programme prepares all students for the senior years of schooling. Our curriculum is comprised of an exciting and broad range of subjects. These subjects include financial literacy, technology and design, practical science, creative and critical thinking as well as practical life skills.

A unique Grade 7 distinctive is the Stewardship project. Students are given $10 and then tasked with designing, marketing, and producing a product during a term. This practical programme focuses on the aspects of initiative, creativity, character, work ethic and industry as encouraged in the wisdom of the Proverbs and alluded to in the Parable of the Talents. 


Enrolments open for 2022

A Middle School option that prepares students for a future of learning by developing character and leadership along with excellence in academics.

Middle School Curriculum

Our relationship and partnership with our sister school in Adelaide, Temple Christian College, has been key as we develop the Middle School curriculum in Naracoorte. In Grade 7 and 8, all subjects are compulsory, giving students experience in a wide range of learning opportunities whilst continuing to develop their education within the core subjects. Our brand new science lab and home economics facilities  provide a range of opportunities for middle school learning. 

At Grade Levels 9 and 10, students have the opportunity to choose some elective subjects that can be studied more intensely. There will still be a broad group of core subjects that will remain compulsory and enable students to develop a strong foundation for study at the senior level.  

Biblically-Based Middle School

At Sunrise, we are very blessed to have teachers that all have a Christian worldview guided by the Word of God. As a relational school, with dedicated staff, our Middle School programme provides every child with skills to persevere and rise to challenges they face in life.

Our aim is for each child to develop a love of learning, self-discipline and leadership skills growing together with fellow students. By the end of Middle School students are well prepared for further study in Grade 11 and 12. 

An opportunity for every child to shine!

Middle School Frequently Asked Questions

We do want to make it clear that we are fully committed to moving on from here and establish the best Middle School concept possible with God’s help and the resources available to us. Even though it is a new venture for Sunrise here in Naracoorte, our sister school in Adelaide, Temple Christian College have done Middle Schooling for quite some time now and will be a great resource in our journey. From 2020 the Grade 7 and 8s will form the Middle School and the subsequent years will see Grades 9 and 10 added. By 2022, Grades 7-10 will form and complete the Middle School progression. 

In our Middle School concept, we will provide the students with a broad academic core that will prepare them well for the demands of Grade 11 and 12. Subjects like Math, English, Science, History, Geography and Physical Education will form those core subjects. Those subjects will be complimented with electives such as Media Arts, Digital technology, Drama, Music and more. Sunrise also provides a diverse range of learning opportunities through our Kitchen Garden program and focus on leadership and character development. We are committed to ensuring that your child has the best chance to shine! 


We are and will be committed to keeping the fees affordable. The fact that we are only going to Grade 10 will keep the fees lower as Year 11 and 12 are the expensive years. As soon as we have our Fee Schedule for the Middle school finalised, we will make it available. 

For those who are already a part of Sunrise Christian School, uniforms will stay the same with one or two items as a distinctive to Middle School.

All Middle School students will have a digital device that the school will provide and manage. We want to make it as easy as possible for the parents and would like to take the heartache of choosing a device out of your hands. Education wise it make sense that we take the responsibility of making sure that the devices are age appropriate, always in good working order, which in turn ensures that education takes place in a more efficient way.
