Sunnynook School

One place for all School Communications

Hero is a powerful and secure online sharing platform designed to reduce the number of places that parents need to check for information about school.

We use it at Sunnynook Primary School:

  • as our student management system (SMS)
  • to share children’s progress and next steps with whānau (for reporting)
  • as our primary means of communication with our school community

You can log in to your Hero account (even if you have students at multiple schools) and see all your children’s progress data; read school notices; record absences and pay your school account online. This is also the place to go if you need to print off reports from previous years.

We strongly recommend that all Sunnynook Primary School whānau set up a login because, while updates are emailed out to you from Hero, there is much more to see when you log on.

How to sign in to your Hero Account

1. Search for ‘Hero’ in your app store and download, or visit

 Your account will have been set up by school using the email address that you provided when you enrolled your child(ren), use this address to request a password. Please note: each contact must have their own email address.

4. Check your email!
 If one doesn’t arrive, check that school has your correct details on file. You need to be using the same email address that we currently have on our school records.
