Athletics at RPS encompasses the entire student body of the school. Hundreds of learners from Grade 1 to Grade 7 take part in our Annual Inter-House meeting held in Term 4. Our team size is reduced on a performance based criteria until we reach our final Inter-Primary School team which competes at the beginning of February in the A – League Inter-Primary event.

We run numerous athletics meetings during our compact season, which takes place during the first 4 weeks of Term 1 and Term 4.

The RPS athletes always impress us with their outstanding performances, and we as a school. Our athletes have built up a proud tradition of excelling at all the subsequent events after Inter-Primary. Approximately 25 RPS athletes participate at Greater Benoni and D-17 and an average of 15 – 20 athletes proceed to qualify and compete at the Gauteng Championships each year.

RPS boasts an IAAF Standard Long Jump Facility which enables our Long Jumpers to fine tune their run ups and techniques in the best possible environment. All of the equipment used to run practices and events are all IAAF Certified. This equipment ranges from shot put balls to our newly acquired full set of hurdles and starting blocks.
