Our children get opportunities to participate in a wide variety of activities outside the classroom including music, choir and kapahaka.
Kapahaka is taught as an optional extension programme from Year 2 – Year 6. There are currently 3 groups:
– Senior Kapahaka – Experienced seniors Y4-6.
– Junior Kapahaka – Experienced juniors Y2-3.
– Beginners Kapahaka – This is a mix of seniors or juniors who haven’t done kapa in previous years
Somerfield Te Kura Wairepo provides opportunities for children from year 2 to 6 to become a member of one of the school choirs. Each choir participates in one of the following out-of-school performances during the year: Kids in Town, Kahukura Schools Music Festival and the Christchurch Schools Music Festival.
We have three choirs within our school:
Waka Mōkihi Choir (Year 2)
Waka Kōpapa Choir (Year 3/4)
Waka Tētē Choir (Year 5/6)
