Mission Statement:

At Sunshine Hills, we, the school community, work together to create a supportive environment in both English and French. Students are encouraged to achieve their personal best academically, physically, and socially in an ever-changing world.

History of School:

Sunshine Hills Elementary School was originally named "Peck Road School". What was Peck Road then is now 64th Avenue. The school was renamed Sunshine Hills shortly after the school had opened in April 1958 as requested by the Peck Road School PTA. A local developer, Tom Ryall, bought 250 acres in the Sunshine Hills municipality in the mid 1950's. The Municipality encouraged him to develop some of the land as residential areas. The name "Sunshine Hills" was chosen by Tom Ryall as a realtor's advertisement, "sunshine" being a valuable commodity in the Lower Mainland. In the past years, Sunshine Hills has had the largest elementary student enrolment in the district, usually around 600. Now in 2002, the population has remained approximately 530. The Early French Immersion population remains almost consistently one third of our enrolment.

Mr. G. W. Graham officially opened Sunshine Hills.
