Our Grade 6 students at Sunrise Marion recently participated in the Stewardship Program ☀️

During the program, students used funds borrowed from the school to create and sell items to younger students. The Stewardship Program, inspired by The Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25:14-30, aims to instil values of diligence and responsibility in students, encouraging them to increase the resources allocated to them.

Students are encouraged to generate enough profit to repay the borrowed money and contribute a portion of their earnings to a charitable cause. The program also provides practical lessons in serving others and managing finances!

The Stewardship Program is a key part of the Sunrise Grade 6 Curriculum. Marion held its final Stewardship Market Day this week. Congratulations to all the Grade 6 students for their innovative products and consistent effort week after week. 💛

Today is Global Day of Parents! This year's theme is "The Promise of Playful Parenting".

With the increase in online play, this year's theme focuses on helping parents and caregivers create safe and positive online experiences for children. Mr Henry Engelbrecht, our Marion Principal, shares about cultivating healthy practices with your children and technology. Henry's tips include:

💛 Use technology in an open environment.
💛 Play games together.
💛 Be part of their social media from the start.

With the right foundations in place, online play can be a connecting experience between parents/caregivers and children. So to all our Sunrise parents and caregivers, we would like to say thank you for the love, care, and guidance you show.

It was a fun and educational day that tied into all the Grade 6s have been learning. 😊

Temple is our sister school and an important part of our "pathways" from primary to high school. Sunrise families have a guaranteed place at Temple Christian College if their choice is confirmed by Grade 5.

At Sunrise, we take great pride in the results of our Phonics Program. Years of development and refinement have led to outstanding outcomes for our students ✍️📚

☀️ What is Phonics?

Phonics is an analytical approach to teaching literacy, providing students with the skills to successfully decode both known and unknown words.It is not just about memorisation, but rather, understanding the rules of why words are spelled and sound the way they do.

☀️ Why Phonics?

Phonics has shown positive results in classrooms, is backed by research, and has been perfected by teachers and educators in classrooms for over 40 years.

☀️ How do we teach Phonics?

We make Phonics enjoyable for children by incorporating fun activities such as using actions and movement, chalkboards, playdough, and even shaving cream while learning! Through these activities, children become excited about learning to read and write.

We believe that Phonics is a crucial part of educating students for reading and writing, and we are dedicated to providing the best possible program to our students. 💛

On Friday, our Grade 3 class at Morphett Vale cooked up a storm with Mrs Neill 🌱🥟

The lesson started in the Kitchen Garden, with the Grade 3s harvesting vegetables to use in their Vegetable Gyoza.

They then headed into the kitchen and learned about the history of Gyoza, and they got to make their own!

They did a wonderful job preparing the food and creating many different shapes. Needless to say, the Gyoza tasted delicious.

Well done class! 👏
