Sun Valley Primary School named Apple Distinguished School

Sun Valley Primary School is pleased to announce that it has been recognised as an Apple Distinguished School for 2019–2022 for its implementation of a modern and reliable IT infrastructure, a dynamic team of well-equipped educators, and an innovative/diverse curriculum synced with technology which enables our students to express their creativity, foster their own collaboration and become critical thinkers.

Apple Distinguished Schools are centres of innovation, leadership and educational excellence that use Apple technology to inspire creativity, collaboration and critical thinking. They showcase innovative uses of technology in learning, teaching and the school environment, and have documented results of academic accomplishment.

The selection of Sun Valley Primary School as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success as an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic accomplishment.

We know that children have different ways of learning and that meeting those individual needs is paramount to helping them reach their potential. This is why we approach education in an innovative way that has the student’s wellbeing at its core.

Students are placed in co-operative groups of four of varied strengths and challenges. They sit together and are inspired to learn how to work individually, as well as in a team. With our one-to-one program, and use of the various Apple Apps, learning and creativity is now in the hands of our students, thus creating highly independent individuals. Learning can now take place anywhere; it is no longer restricted to the classroom. Collaboration has become the norm. Our lessons are highly adaptable and thus cater to all learning styles.

Our dedicated teaching staff are 100% committed to the holistic education of their students. Our teachers look at how they can make their lessons more stimulating through the use of the Multi-Touch textbooks and various Apple Creative Apps such as Keynote. We want our students to be engaged and excited to learn.

Our aim is to build strong, independent and considerate members of society. To give them a well-rounded education that fosters their creativity and critical thinking skills in order for them to develop a growth mindset that will help them succeed in their future.

Sun Valley Primary School provides an integrated and cooperative learning environment that lends itself to growing responsible, caring, and self-motivated individuals. At Sun Valley, children are nurtured and encouraged to develop and master relevant skills, concepts and attitudes. We believe that in order for our future generations to contribute to and uphold a society in which all are considered equal, it is imperative to have a vested interest from the earliest possible stages in education.
