Athletics Club begins at the end of Term 2 and runs throughout Term 3. The girls have the opportunity to experience a number of Track and Field events on site but are also given access to friendly competition against other schools at local athletics tracks. Strathearn has a long history of success at District, Ulster and Irish level and a number of girls achieve representative honours at various age groups as a result of this success. Practices are led by Ms Young, Mrs Harvey and a team of other coaches after school throughout the week as well as Saturday mornings.
Sports Hall Athletics
Sports hall athletics takes place during the winter and is run by Miss Brittain. An U13 and U15 team is selected to represent East Belfast at the Ulster Aviva Sportshall Athletics Championships. The team meets one evening and one lunchtime a week.
