Each year the school has it’s own athletics day as well as its own swimming sports day. Here students compete against other students in each event but also to take out the title of best swimmer or best athlete. This takes place in Term 1.
From our school championships students then go on to compete at Canterbury Championships. Last year we took nearly 20 students to Canterbury Athletic Champs and 5 to Swimming Champs. This takes place in Term 1.
Each year students from Riccarton compete at National and South Island events. This is organised by the students and their families as is usually just a small group. Athelics Nationals is in Term 4 with Swimming Nationals in Term 3.
