School Life

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 with SAPSASA and SACSA. Here in Naracoorte we are privileged to have a school Football and Netball team that you child can join. We also have a strong connection with local sporting clubs.

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.


As part of the educational program, students learn Japanese as a secondary language. Japanese lessons start in Reception and continue throughout the entire educational program. Students learn about the culture of Japan, as well as reading, writing and speaking in their language.

Literacy and Phonics

Since being founded in 1978, Sunrise Christian School has taught literacy and phonics to junior primary students. Recent research shows that phonics based literacy program produce the best educational results for students. We therefore partner with families, educating parents in this method of teaching and then replicate it in the classroom.
