Beginning late in Term 3, all students participate in athletics training during class PE lessons. This covers the usual array of field events, sprint training and relays.
At the end of the training sessions, each syndicate nominates a team of top athletes across a number of disciplines to compete in the full range of track and field events at the School Athletics Day.
RI Athletics Day
The RI Athletics Day is held at Mt Smart stadium in Term 4 each year.
Students who do not attend the Mt Smart competition participate in a full day of outdoor activities at School.
Central Zones Competition
Winners of individual events at the RI Athletics Day form the Central Zones Athletics team that competes at Mt Smart Stadium towards the end of the year.
