    From small beginnings over 30 years ago, our school has grown into a Christian community united by a desire to bring up young people to love God, love each other, and love learning. We believe in developing the whole child and providing high-quality physical education, arts, and camping/excursion programs alongside our wide-ranging curriculum and rigorous academic study. Our school is known for its strong Christian foundations, excellent pastoral care, sound academic record, vibrant curriculum, and big family'.

    As a school of the Lutheran Church of Australia, we are driven by a belief in education's great importance. The first Lutheran migrants came to Australia to bring up their children in the faith to serve God and serve the world. This unwavering belief in the importance of providing quality Christian education still drives us as a school today.

    The staff of Sunshine Christian School are highly experienced and consider it a great privilege to serve the children placed in our care. In partnership with our families, we aim to create an environment where all children can explore their God-given gifts and talents and move on into secondary education and beyond, ready to serve and ready to succeed.

    Our vision is a community loving God, loving others, loving learning. Our mission is:

    • To provide a quality Christian education in the Lutheran tradition, which assists parents to enable their children to grow and flourish as lifelong learners.
    • To work towards individual and community wellbeing and wholeness – cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual.
    • To engender the responsibility to serve others, appreciate cultural inclusivity, and foster the individual God-given talents of all in our community.
    • To keep enrolment at Sunshine Christian School available to all, regardless of financial status, cultural background, or academic ability.

    We seek to operate by the values shared by all Lutheran schools in Australia as expressed in the Lifelong Qualities of Learners document lived out in our context and community. These values are:

    • Love
    • Justice
    • Compassion
    • Forgiveness
    • Service

    • Humility
    • Hope
    • Quality

    • To encourage students to strive for excellence in learning according to individual ability.
