Choir

We have an enthusiastic choir who support the music at mass and school liturgies and are involved in festivals such as the South Christchurch Music Festival. We are also involved in other community events such as Christmas singing with other schools and in malls.
Children are to wear their winter uniform on the performance nights, thank you

Lyrics


Aotearoa - Stan Walker

Nō tawhiti, nō tata
nō te whenua o te Atua tātou
ahakoa nō hea mai koe
ka whawhai tonu mātou mōu



Kings - Don’t worry about it  and April Sun in Cuba

Run free, boy, run free
That's what I would have said to the young me
Sometimes I feel I grew up just a little fast
Sometimes I wish I was the old me
I still pour it off and keep it lit
With the friends that I came up wit'
Smooth sailing like we own this ship
We don't worry 'bout it
Now we don't worry 'bout it
So don't you worry 'bout it
So don't you worry 'bout it

I'm tired of the city life
Summer's on the run
People tell me I should stay
But I got to get my fun
So don't try to hold me back
Ain't nothing you can say
Snake eyes on the paradise
And we got to go today
Take me to the April Sun in Cuba, oh, oh, oh
Take me where the April sun gonna treat me so right
So right
So right
I can almost smell the perfumed nights
And see the starry sky
I wish you comin' with me baby
'Cause right before my eye
See Castro in the alley way
Talkin' 'bout missile love
Talkin' 'bout J.F.K.
And the way he shook him up
Take me to the April Sun in Cuba, oh, oh, oh
Take me where the April sun gonna treat me So right
so right
So right
I'm tired of the city life
Summer's on the run
Birds in the winter sky
Are headin' for the sun
Oh, we can stick it out
In this cold and grey
Snake eyes on the paradise
And we got to go today, yeah
Take me to the April Sun in Cuba, oh, oh, oh
Take me where the April sun gonna treat me so right
So right
So right

Take me to the April sun
C'mon take me, take me to the April sun
C'mon, c'mon take me, take me to the April sun
C'mon, c'mon take me, take me to the April sun





Split Enz mashup - 2 songs - Six months in a leaky boat, I see red
When I was a young boy
I wanted to sail around the world
That's the life for me, living on the sea
Spirit of a sailor, circumnavigates the globe
The lust of a pioneer, will acknowledge no frontier
I remember you by, thunderclap in the sky
Lightning flash, tempers flare,
'round the horn if you dare
I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Lucky just to keep afloat
Aotearoa, rugged individual
Glisten like a pearl, at the bottom of the world
The tyranny of distance, didn't stop the cavalier
So why should it stop me, I'll conquer and stay free
Ah c'mon all you lads, let's forget and forgive
There's a world to explore, tales to tell back on shore
I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Six months in a leaky boat

I am fed up with crying
My despair is drying
Draining into rage day by day
Green before you met me
In the pink when you let me love you
I was blue when you let me down
Black and blue
When my baby is walking down the street
I see red, I see red, I see red
How can someone wicked walk around free
I see red, I see red, I see red
I see red, oh I see red





Six 60 Mashup - 3 songs - Only to be, Don’t forget your roots, Rise up


Only to be, I live in expectancy
No wonder it feels like this wasn't meant for me
Though my mind is so confined
That there ain't no point in reasoning
Now that it's clear to see
It was all in front of me
And I'm right where I'm supposed to be
Yeah yeah, I'm left just turning pages
Yeah, well I know that it's worth the ride
Ain't it good to be alive?
So what will it be?
My dreams are my company
To lose what is meI follow the path I see
So poor, my mind is so confined
That I don't even know where to begin
But it took me so long to find
That I can leave it all behind'
Cause I don't got everything I'd ever need
Yeah yea, I'm left just turning pages
Yeah, well I know that it's worth the ride
Ain't it good to be alive?
So Johnny was a good man
Armed with the power of his homeland
And with his boots laced tight and a ticket in his hand
Never to return home again
So he lost what he knows and what all is right
For a broken world and a world of lies
But the days were numbered, relationships suffered
He lost the faith of all those who mattered so
Don't forget your roots, my friend
Don't forget your family, yeah
Don't forget your roots, my friend
The ones who made you
The ones who brought you here
Don't forget your roots, my friend
Don't forget your family, yeah
Don't forget your roots, my friend, yeah
Whoa

[Chorus]
Won't you rise up
Won't you rise up
Won't you rise up
Baby, it's a revolution
Won't you rise up
Won't you rise up
Won't you rise up
Baby, it's a revolution

It's taking all your might
To get over all this strife
Don't let them tell you how to treat your life
But as sunshine brings the day
And the darkness starts to fade
Won't you stand up, rebel
Won't you show them you know how

We'll rise up
Whoa - stand up
Whoa - rise up, rebel
Show them you know how

[Chorus]
Won't you rise up
Won't you rise up
Won't you rise up
Baby, it's a revolution
Won't you rise up
Won't you rise up
Won't you rise up
Baby, it's a revolution

Whoa, whoa, yeah

Calling out to you
Stand up for what is true
Don't be afraid to fight
Baby, it's a revolution


Minuit - Aotearoa 
And if the past's a distant land
Maybe there is no rhyme or reason
And if we salvage what we can
You and me

And yes, it's true we're very young
And we have sticks and stones and bruises
Can we do undo what has been done?
Is this the way destiny chooses?

You and me
You and me
You and me
We are a New Zealand

And yes, it's true we're very young
And we have sticks and stones and bruises
Can we do undo what has been done?
You and meWe are a New Zealand
A New Zealand
You and me

And if the past's a distant land
Maybe there is no rhyme or reason
And if we salvage what we can
You and me
We are a New Zealand
It's you and I
You and me
We are a New Zealand



Slice of Heaven Dave Dobbyn
Hey, I got a lot of faith in you
I'll stick with you kid- that's the bottom line
Yeah, you have a lot of fun don't you
And living with you is a ball of a time
Hey beauty when the mood gets you down
Your bottom lip's near dragging on the ground
That's when I gotta play the clown for you
Black humour made you kick your blues
Howdy Angel
Where did you hide your wings
Her love shines over my horizon- she's a slice of heaven
Warm moonlight over my horizon- she's a slice of heaven
Hey, I gotta lotta faith in youI'll stick with you kid- that's the bottom line
Yeah, we have a lot of fun don't we
And heaven has to be with you all the time
Hey beauty when the mood gets you down
Your bottom lip's near dragging on the ground
That's when I gotta play the clown for you
Black humour made me kick my blues

Howdy Angel
Where did you hide your wings
Her love shines over my horizon- she's a slice of heaven
Warm moonlight over my horizon- she's a slice of heaven
