Rotary Tip Top Fun Day - Sunday 25th March.  It is a super day where families support the teams.  It is a Sunday, so we can only go ahead with this activity if we have the parent supervision.  The cost per child is $3.50 .  There are still 25 spaces left for students in Year 4-6.  Please fill in the form here: http://bit.ly/tiptop18  There is space for 20 more students to join the team. A reminder to please pay.

ENVIRO ART from Mrs Daniel - Thanks for the donations.  We now only need plastic spoons and the loan of a tile cutter (if anyone has one).  


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.
