Our school

Photo of 3 studentsSunnybank Hills was opened in 1979 with several hundred students. We cater for students from prep to year 6 and teach in a year level format. Due to our enrolment management policy, our current enrolments sit at around 1390. We endeavour to not exceed this to enable best use of our facilities and resources.

During 2019, construction on a new teaching block consisting of nineteen classrooms, five practical learning areas and a science and art room will be built.  This new facility will cater for our growing enrolments and maintain the highest standard for our learning environment by incoroporating the latest classroom designs.

Every classroom in our school is fully air-conditioned to provide the most productive learning environment for all children.

Class numbers are kept at or below the recommended 25 students in prep to year 3, and 28 for years 4 to 6. At Sunnybank Hills, teachers work in year level teams to ensure continuity of experiences, curriculum and assessment. Sometimes we do need to form a composite class of two year levels. In this case, parents are consulted. Children selected for composite classes are usually higher achieving and often independent students capable of completing extension activities.

We are extremely proud of the multi-cultural nature of our school community. Our student population consists of over 54 cultures that all work and play together very well. Students who have English as a second language (ESL) are given support by our specialized ESL staff.

As a school, our academic results are of a very high standard. Our students are constantly encouraged to enter national and state wide academic competitions with many obtaining high distinctions, distinctions and credits. More information regarding these results can be found on our website.

Extra curricular options are offered to students in music, sport, chess, robotics, dance and drama. Students are usually not auditioned for these, as we believe that participation and commitment are important factors.

Sunnybank Hills State School is a large school that offers a very high standard of educational, technological, musical and sporting programs. This coincides with a very supportive teaching and administrative staff and a friendly community spirit that values and supports the work of day to day school life.
