2023 Trivia Night Fundraising – Thank you to all our Donors!

The 2023 Sunnyside Trivia night was a major success with over 110 guests getting dressed up, enjoying some fun competition and plenty of laughs.

Collectively we raised over $14,000 for the kindergarten! This would not have been possible without the generous donations from our wonderful sponsors. The funds raised will be used to replace the indoor chairs and tables, replace some of the outdoor play equipment and assist in the build of a Japanese Zen Garden.

A very special thank you to the McBride family, Emily & Alex Ivory & Nadja Arnold for donating weekends away to include in our online auction. Also, to these businesses owned by our generous Sunnyside families; Stories by Nadja, Bouchee & Rocket Mama Yoga and all our donors who contributed.

Please support these businesses where you can, to give back for their generosity.

"Both my children, as well as my husband and I, loved Sunnyside... They adored their teachers across both the 3 and 4 year old programs and we all formed very strong friendships that continue."
Lucy, Maxi and Maddie’s Mum (2019-2021)
"My daughter loves the 'fairy garden' outside at Sunnyside and always asks when she can next go back. The staff were also very helpful in determining when to send Lucy to Kinder, given she has a February birthday"
