Sunrise Bethel Christian School began in the year 2010 after several years of careful planning, prayerful research and discussion. The school is a ministry of the Bethel Tabernacle of Praise in Waigani, Port Moresby. The founding principal, Mr Roger Tumes, invested into the school by ensuring that the foundation was laid for a curriculum which is biblically based, and leads students to find their area of Christian service, with academic excellence paramount.
Sunrise Bethel Christian School Inc is a body incorporated in PNG. It has a Board that governs the School. The Board comprises leaders and members of the Bethel Tabernacle of Praise and professional people from the Community. The Board receives input and feedback from the school community directly as they are involved directly in either the life of the school or the church.
The SBCS Board liaises closely with the CEO of Adelaide Christian Schools, its sister organization in Australia. The CEO operates in an advisory capacity to the local Board. ACS provides operational and financial advice and a level of accountability that assures that financial and administrational excellence is maintained.
Changing Nations Through Christian Education
Equipping Students for Life by Providing Christ-Centred Quality Education
The Leadership at the Bethel Tabernacle of Praise and CRC Churches International have a heart for quality Christian Education to help support and encourage families across the nation of Papua New Guinea.
Our primary goal is to establish a demonstration school (E1-12) and a teacher training institution in Port Moresby.
The aim will be to have well trained, qualified teachers in many of the cities, towns and villages where CRC Churches International, or any other interested church, has a presence. This network may also extend to other Pacific nations.

LEARNING AT Sunrise Bethel
Our Strategic Plan
Sunrise Bethel Christian School will offer an excellent Biblical, Christ-centred school in Port Moresby, to provide a base for teaching children to become effective members of their communities and leaders in their Nation. This school will be a demonstration school and a model for further schools in the country.
Sunrise Bethel Christian School will provide a base for ongoing teacher training for those who are currently teaching and to train those who desire to be teachers. It would also be a base for LANT (Literacy and Numeracy Training). This will contribute to building communities in PNG and the whole of the South Pacific region.
Sunrise Bethel Christian School will build communities, primarily through schools and health education programs. The facilities, however, apart from offering schooling, will help build communities by developing a base for English as a second language and life skill development (leadership skills, finances, conflict resolution etc.) to people of all ages.
MAJOR EXPANSION PROJECT
OUR AIM is to provide the best educational learning environment for our students now and in the future.
Our immediate expansion plans for the School includes the construction of a double storey building of 5 classrooms, that will include provision for specialist subjects like science and technology. .
