Reminders:

Thanks to those families who have been able to make their donation contribution for the year. If paid before 31st March there is a discount of $30 to $320.  Donations fund many additional resources that we would not usually be able to fund - primarily our specialist staff - Maths, Music, Enviro & all our Learning Assistants who now are used more broadly than just Year 1 inclass support.  The Learning Assistants are also trained for additional Literacy support and Language Enrichment - so we are able to provide more support when and as needed to our learners.  Payments can be made via www.wrapitup.co.nz

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.
