Welcome

Term 2, Break

Term 3 starts back on Monday 23rd of July.  We hope that you have a relaxing and safe break with your family.  After the break, we welcome many short term international students who will be hosted in each of our Year 3-6 classrooms over the first 5 weeks of the term.  This is a great opportunity to profile our school on a global scale, practice our school values of kindness and celebrating diversity, and utilise the income from our visitors into large scale projects around the school.

Waiho i te toipoto, kaua i te toiroa
Let us keep close together not far apart

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 and environmental educational specialist teachers 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.
