2024 ATHLETICS DAY – Friday 1 March

The Westlake Girls Athletics Day is an annual all school event and a major undertaking where everyone relocates to AUT Millennium Athletics Track, the home of North Harbour Athletics, for a day of fun. Students compete, participate, officiate or cheerlead to help their one to become the top HOUSE overall . There are two types of competitions on Athletics Day which are run separately, CHAMPIONSHIP or HOUSE. The CHAMPIONSHIP competition is for competitive athletes and helps to determine the school champions as well as the qualifiers for the regional championships. It will be held at the NORTH end of the track by the ENTRY GATE. The HOUSE events are focused on participation and having a go and will be run at the opposite end.

ALL STUDENTS must attend and enter at least 3 Championship or House events on the day. Every event earns 1 point but the CHAMPIONSHIP podium finishers will earn more. ALL YEAR 9 AND CYGNET STUDENTS MUST ENTER THE CHAMPIONSHIP EVENTS . Other students can opt for either Championship or House events. The Competitive and House competitions are separate events. Parents are welcome to support on the day but we ask that they watch from the South bank, opposite the HOUSE TENTS and students.


Registrations are only needed for CHAMPIONSHIP events. Students who wish to represent the school at the regional championships, the North Harbour and Auckland Secondary School Athletics Champs, must enter the CHAMPIONSHIP events to qualify. ENTRIES CLOSE ON MONDAY 22 FEBRUARY 2024.

HOUSE events are entered on the day by going to the event when your Year group is called.
