Athletics is part of the PE syllabus and the college likes every student to find their niche at one or more athletic events. Students can choose from sprints, relays, long-distance, hurdles, high jump, long jump, triple jump, javelin, shot-put, hammer, discus, pole vault and walking. In the summer term athletics comes into its own with West Leinster, Leinster and All-Ireland finals held in Tullamore.
In 2013 the college won gold, silver and a bronze medal at these games and there are ambitions to improve on that result next year. Sports day, 18th September 2013, will be a good day for students to show what they are capable of.
