  • I was the head prefect class of 2010. The confidence that they install in a child is remarkable. The teachers there sincerely care about the child’s emotional situation and how they perform in the classroom. I loved being here, every day of my primary school life was a bliss.

  • Teachers of Sunrise Primary School are very caring and supportive in nature. They are always ready to take academic problems of their students. School is also very keen to improve the performance of their students in every aspect of their life whether academic or personal. I am thankful to the school and its management for putting in such sincere efforts for all the students of their school.
  • Primary school years were a literal sunrise for me with Sunrise Primary School; started each day of the week bright and sunny with a lot of productivity given to us by very enthusiastic educators, who patiently handled average and high performance from learners with much professionalism. If I were to choose a primary school afresh, I'd still choose sunrise; where all the brightness to your future begins.
  • Sunrise Primary School gave me the best foundation that has enabled me to pursue my goals without any limit nor fear. I remember particularly grade 7 where we were only 11 in class, the determination, drive and competitiveness in the classroom was very exciting and that experience l wont trade it for anything in the world. The teachers were passionate, dedicated and friendly, they gave us high quality education. Today l’m proud to say I'm a product of Sunrise Primary School and l highly recommend the school to everyone.
