Welcome to Term 3, Week 1:

NEW BEFORE SCHOOL CARE: There is just enough support to get this off the ground, we are hoping that more families will take up this opportunity as indicated in the responses from the recent Principal's Email Group survey. Before School Care from 7am please contact Beth Chapman (who runs the After School Care too) on 5202273 or 0272902737.  Beth will let you know the special code for the gate if you are entering before 7.45am. 

The back pathway to Fordyce Avenue is complete.  The Board wishes to thank the Becroft Family for contributing to this project in order to get this pathway improved.  We are also thankful that the Council came through with extra concrete on their side of our boundary.

Friday: 12noon - Whole School Assembly - all invited! Come along and find out about the Councillor "One Can, Two Can" project for the City Mission and the PTA's upcoming Huff n Puff athon!  1.30pm Year 6 Health Talks

What makes Sunnyhills such a unique school?

It is a place where children are articulate, caring and respectful, displaying a strong sense of citizenship; a place endorsed by a safe and nurturing community. Our parents have high expectations of their children, matched by unconditional support.  At Sunnyhills we strive to unlock the potential in every child as we grow lifelong learners.

Our business first and foremost is children’s learning; preparing our young people with the skills they need for the future. The Sunnyhills’ ‘Learning for life’ philosophy fosters independence, curiosity and critical thinking.  Students are engaged, and lead their own learning pathways through inquiry based topics.  They display a ‘have a go’ attitude and are not afraid to take responsible risks. 

Opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom are plentiful and diverse.  Children’s learning is supported by high quality teaching, well resourced classrooms, a music specialist and we have learning assistants in all of our junior classrooms. The Arts, sports and culture are valued and are an integral part of our varied programme.
