Kia ora, Fakaalofa lahi atu, Talofa lava, Ni hao, Annyeong, Namaste, Salam, Beunos dias, Un nyung and welcome to Sunnyvale Primary School.

Our school lives and breathes a culture of belonging, inclusiveness, diversity, learning and success. We value and model the importance of understanding what learning and progress looks like, sounds like and feels like. This means that your child will develop their understanding of themselves as a learner and how they might engage with and lead learning. They will be supported and nurtured by a dedicated, caring staff to feel confident, successful and listened to.

To find out more about our school I welcome you to explore our website, our Facebook page or meet with us in person.

Ngā mihi nui,

Katie Pennicott
