Athletes are selected to represent the school for track and field and cross country at North Harbour zones based on results at school athletics days and athlete’s personal records. 

All Year 9 and 10 students run school cross-country and it is optional for seniors. The event is held in late Term 1 or early Term 2. Students interested in competing at zone, Auckland, and national levels should participate. 

Coaching is available through the school and local clubs. Athletes can also register as members with local clubs.


Singlets will be loaned to students for each event. Black shorts or tights must be worn with the school singlet.
