Whyalla School

Together we shine

Community Life

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

Your son or daughter will be guided towards helping those less fortunate, with the chance to engage with community groups and agencies, and, in the process, develop 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 programmes, helping out at key events, or by taking part in parents’ groups.

The school understands, however, that many parents are unable to invest a great deal of time in school activities, but may be able to help out in other ways, and we are always happy to chat with families about how they can contribute to the Sunrise school community.

Parent groups

Our school benefits from a strong and active community of parents and loved ones. Your support helps our school welcome new families and helps them feel part of the Sunrise Christian School Whyalla 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, Whyalla parents are also able to join the closed SCS Whyalla group upon enrolment. This group is for SCS Whyalla families and provides a forum to celebrate, share and ask questions.
