Your child benefits from a team of dedicated Christian teachers who believe in developing your child’s academic potential and character with high quality pastoral care and attention given to the wellbeing of every student.
In Primary we focus on the establishment of strong literacy and numeracy skills, development of effective social skills and a love for learning. The Primary years at Suncoast Christian College includes a specialist Prep Centre, Junior Primary (Years 1 – 3) classes and Upper Primary (Years 4 – 6) classes.
We understand that your child is unique and at Suncoast you will find our goal is the same as yours, to prepare your child for their future.
Suncoast has a purpose-built Prep Centre, incorporating interactive whiteboard learning technology, spacious child-height multi-purpose kitchen and an exclusive outdoor learning area. In a word, Prep is FUN!
The Prep curriculum is an engaging play based program with learning embedded through exploration, experimentation and child-centre investigations.
The importance of Early Years education is reflected in Junior Primary where students are nurtured within their own precinct and provided with a safe, supportive environment in which to learn and flourish. Our students develop effective social skills and gain confidence through performing art lessons, a specialist physical education program, literature enrichment in a purpose built area of the library and contemporary IT resources.
Discoveries made, friendships formed, the beginning of a lifelong adventure of learning – these are the Junior Primary years your child will enjoy.
In Upper Primary we provide a balanced curriculum with co-curricular programs for students as they continue on their educational journey, building on academic and social skills learnt in Junior Primary.
Our students will further develop their literacy and numeracy skills, participate in fun and engaging physical activities, express themselves through the performing arts and be equipped with practical IT skills. Students are provided with a leadership development program to grow their Christian character and learn to lead by example to younger students.
Information Learning Technology
Our ILT strategy enables our students access to up-to-date technology in the classroom to enhance their learning. Classes have access to banks of notebook computers, interactive whiteboards, digital cameras, as well as collaboration and communication software. Internet access is safely monitored and restricted.
Sport and Physical Education
A commitment to health and fitness is important at Suncoast. Fun and engaging physical programs commence from the Prep year with a Prep perceptual motor program, through to Upper Primary SCCISA program. Students participate in swimming lessons in Terms 1 & 4.
Student Learning Support
At Suncoast we are known for our quality student support programs. In providing a supportive and inclusive learning environment for children, we have a team of people dedicated to early intervention, effective remediation, individualised programs and enrichment to help every child achieve learning success.
With a dedicated Primary Chaplain, students are supported on an individual basis as well as benefitting from group programs that support students in the areas of friendship and social interactions, family life, crisis situations and leadership. Our Chaplain partners with teachers, parents and other members of the College community to achieve positive outcomes.
A love for the Arts is encouraged at Suncoast. Students are regularly given the opportunity to perform at Chapels, assemblies and special events such as Spotlight, Easter Celebration and end of year celebrations. Upper and Junior Primary Choirs, dance group, Chapel Band as well as a College Band provide a world of performing opportunities. Many Primary students also choose to participate in the Voice & Instrumental program (VIP) offered at the College.VIP Program
Upper Primary students have the opportunity to participate in a camp program aimed at self-discovery, personal development and leadership. Each camp is purposefully designed around specific aims and outcomes. The program culminates with a Year 6 National Capital tour.
