Announcing the launch of our new school app – Hero

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Whānau,
We are delighted to launch our Student Management System and new communication platform, Hero.
Hero allows schools to build an online environment that reflects our unique context. It enables teachers, students, and whānau to view and share content anytime, anywhere, on any device. The software is secure, easy to use and brings together all school-related information in one place.
We are excited about the features that Hero has to offer our families. These include the ability for parents and caregivers to:
read and comment on school notices sent to your child’s class or groups
respond to school notices such as surveys and trip permission requests
view school term dates
view a school calendar of events
notify the school if your child is absent or late
navigate to other school-related webpages
customise your account by adding a profile image
select how you wish to receive notifications

It is Sunnybrae’s goal to use the HERO platform for all of our communication from Term 1 in 2024. We are, therefore, asking that our school whānau go through the process of signing up to HERO this year so that we can test it out and iron out any issues early. Please follow the steps below and give it a go.
For information about Hero, including how to log in, go to Hero or contact Jane Sharpe, Deputy Principal ( Also, see below for step-by-step instructions on how to get set up.
If you need further support these drop in sessions are available in the school library.
