Do you think Sunday School is still a relevant and effective way to reach people today?

Absolutely!   I became a Christian through my children.  While we teach our children the complicated things in life, they  remind us of the simple things. Here is my testimony.

I wasn't raised with a religious education as I grew up in foster care, moving between group homes. I never understood that religion had anything to do with me. I always thought that it was just something other people did like family reunions or birthday parties. I married and had two sons. When my husband past away I of course became a single parent.  It was difficult even without my eldest child having autism and being dependant on government income.  One day a couple of young men knocked on my door and invited me to church. I said no. I had my hands full already and no time for church.  Then they asked me if my kids could go to church.  Even after questioning them extensively about church and explaining my sons disability they still wanted to take my children to church.  So of course my answer was "sure!".lol. My kids came home later that day with big smiles on their faces and and a hand full of pictures and stickers. They wanted to go back again the next Sunday.  They haven't missed a Sunday to this day at 25 and 28 years old. But as I said, my eldest has autism.  And a symptom of his autism is a lack of imagination.  He is person that doesn't know how to lie, he can not be embarrassed or humiliated,  and can not keep a secret.  But he knows God. He doesn't just understand God, he knows God. I had to find out for myself  so I started going to church too.

How can Sunday School not be relevant?  If it's not relevant, it's not Sunday School itself that's irrelevant, it's how it's being handled. 

At my church, my children get a lot out of Sunday School, but I find the adult class my wife likes irrelevant to me.  It's just too much fluff.  I'd like to see Churches go to segregated classes.   But, no hint of that ever happening...

If the focus is on the word, then yes, it is relevant.  God's word does not come back void.  ::shrug::
