Athletics is a multi-faceted sport including a wide range of both track and field events. In South Africa, the national Athletics calendar spans a couple of months in the first term. At most schools that take part in Athletics, however, the school Athletics calendar is firmly fixed in the third term. At Eden we have two Sports Days, one for the Junior Primary pupils and one for the rest (Whole School Sports Day - Grades 4 - 12). Furthermore, pupils are taught various skills during their Physical Education lessons. Each year, a number of athletes are selected to go through to the zonal and regional trials and a number make it through to various representative teams.
