Student Volunteer Army Project - check out our video!

The Sunnyhills School Year 5 students, registered to take part in the School Kit Squad's Student Volunteer Army initiative. For this project the students had to think of ways in which we could help our community. After lots of thinking and researching, Room 5 decided to visit the local Retirement Village, Room 11 visited the local Kindy and Room 6 did some work around our school grounds and also did some work with the junior students. We also gathered a collection of bits and pieces to deliver to the needy animals at the SPCA, as well as make 'Kindness Rocks' to anonymously deliver to some deserving recipients throughout our community. Here is Room 5's video of our journey. Big shout out to School Kit Squad for providing the plans, resources and truly meaningful and rewarding learning experience for us. Enjoy!

Book worms

It is so awesome to get stuck into a good book and be transformed to other times and places, as can be seen here by Chloe and Hannah, who chose to spend their lunch time in the senior courtyard reading! That's what I call Learning for Life :)


On Wednesday we celebrated Diwali and the week before that we were lucky enough to have some international performers come and show us some of their traditional dances/songs and instruments. There are always so many interesting things going on at Sunnyhills! 

What did you learn about Diwali?

Kampung Kids X factor

Team 5, we are AWESOME. Through all our orgaisation of the X Factor, we managed to raise close to $800 for Kampung Kids in Jakarta. Here are some photos of the finalists. A big congratulations to Emma who did a spectacular job playing her violin.

Also the Room 5 hosts (Bodhi, Keeley, Steven, Vera, Isabelle and Luke) and tech supporters (Joseph and Clyde) were AMAZING and made the show run so smoothly.
