SA Success Stories: Sunrise Christian School
Written by Kit Densley on September 16, 2020
Sunrise Christian School.
The school started in 1978 with a vision to have a place where kids could go each day and the faith journey could continue as much at home as it did at school.
Coming out of Adelaide Christian Centre on Sturt Street, the school was the vision of Sn Pastor Leo Harris who pulled a $20 note out of his wallet “well there is the first donation”!
That step of obedience has led to a school with 6 campuses within South Australia and overseas mission schools. Sunrise believes that keeping in line with God’s word will grow amazing things.
These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.Deuteronomy 6:6-7
Sunrise has a vision of a school that works in partnership with families to provide Bible based learning. It also works to create an environment that fosters a child’s ability to learn about their God-given purpose and talents. But more than that, Sunrise seeks to help parents raise children into adults that are enriching the world around them.
