Our annual athletics is held during the first term at the West Rand School. We begin very early in the term with our house sports, during which the athletics team is chosen. Practices take place during school hours to accommodate those learners who cannot stay after school because of transport.

We participate in three competitions during the term against sister schools (LSEN schools), building up to the highlight of the term, the Herman Immelmann Athletics Championships, usually held around mid-March.
