Sunnyside Primary opened in 1894 and until 1998 was housed in the original sandstone building. In August 1998 the school moved to the present new accommodation comprising classrooms, library, and games/assembly hall.

Photogtaph - Sunnyside Primary SchoolSunnyside Nursery class, a 60/60 place nursery, is housed in the old building and provides a safe, stimulating and attractive learning environment for 3 and 4 year old children.

In April 2006, the refurbishment of the top floor of the old building created two new bright, attractive classrooms for P7s, a music/drama room, a large resource room, office space and a meeting room.

The school has excellent facilities and a hard-working staff.
