From the Principal
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.
Our Grade Eights have proven that all students can succeed with 100% of our students entering Grade Nine in local schools, excelling in their new locations.
It is our desire that students develop an understanding of the Christian way of life through personal relationship with Jesus and it is our goal that we shine a light on truth, directing students to the author of all truth.
Romans 12 verses 1- 3 indicates that any transformation begins with renewing our mind. It is our thinking which needs to be identified, engaged, evaluated, critiqued and, if necessary, changed.
The Bible says our thinking comes from the heart (Genesis 6:5; Proverbs 23:7; Daniel 2:30) as well as our willingness, our plans and decisions (Proverbs 16:1,9; Matthew 12:33-34). Learning requires deep knowledge and conviction about the God-given purpose of life, to serve others and not ourselves. To be stewards of creation.
At Sunrise Bethel Christian School, we believe that thinking is the key to knowledge and understanding. And knowledge and understanding are treasures we should hold onto.
Colossians 2: 2-3 reflects our goal that “… they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
