Columba College Athletics is as passionate about athletics as you are.

Our annual athletics day near the start of term one brings the school together for friendly competition between our four proud house groups, and offers students an opportunity to try out a number of events supported by others doing the same. For those who are more serious about athletics, there is a chance to measure themselves against the efforts of students over the past 100 years, and have their names etched in the record books of the school. From this athletics day, students are selected for Otago Champs to compete in a range of Track and Field events. Many continue on to the South Island Champs, and following this a number of our top performing athletes go through to the Nationals at the end of the school year. Columba has a proud history of doing well at the National Athletics Championships. Columba’s first Class Gymnasium (Marsh Sports Centre), is equipped with fitness equipment that is cutting edge, so if you are chasing an athletic dream, our gym is fully equipped with all the equipment you may need to turn this dream into a reality.
