At Somerfield we pride ourselves in being an ‘active’ school. We provide opportunities for our students to be involved in multiple sports such as cross country, athletics and swimming.
During the first two weeks of term 4 the whole school has swimming lessons at Pioneer Leisure Centre.
Over the past year we provided opportunities for our older students to be involved in basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rugby and touch rugby.
Many of our students went on to represent Somerfield School at Zones or Centrals in football, hockey, netball, swimming, and athletics and cross country. Students were able to develop leadership through sport by being a House leader or being a member of the Active Council.
Throughout the year we have various sports organisations and clubs come to school to teach softball, tennis, netball and football skills.
Our teachers follow the Canterbury Sports Start programme for weekly PE sessions. Each term our daily fitness focus changes and includes jump jam, skipping and cross country practice.
