2022 WGHS Athletics 

Westlake Girls is well-represented at the North Harbour, Auckland, North Island and New Zealand Secondary Schools Athletics Championships each year due to the number of talented athletes that the school attracts. 

The season begins in early February with a full school Athletics Day held at the Takapuna Athletics Club. All students are invited to compete or participate in many events to win house points for their respective Houses.  It is also the main opportunity for our top athletes to shine and to qualify for the regional Secondary School Athletics Championships.
