Sunshine Christian School is a Primary School of the Lutheran Church and its aims are based on the Christian faith, applied in a day school environment.
The school encourages the development of a faith in God as revealed in Christ Jesus and provides a link between the home and the church.
Our aim is to have a school which exhibits and exercises a caring concern for each student and teacher: a school that has a happy and stimulating atmosphere, in which each student is encouraged to develop as a whole person and to give of their best in academic study, social skills, cultural interests and human relationships. The school is concerned to present the wholeness of life to students in such a way that they can make a perceptive and wholehearted response. On this basis the student may work, question, think, ask, discover, learn, create, serve, and worship in ways which will bring them gradually to responsible maturity.
The school offers a comprehensive education to all students. The curriculum emphasises the skills of communication, literacy and numeracy, the ability to think logically, to make decisions, learn of the physical world, and participate in creative activities, physical education, and Christian education. Teachers are lovingly concerned with the spiritual, intellectual, physical, creative, emotional, social, and ethical development, and growth of all the children, whatever their gifts and abilities.
