It is usually held during the month of November.  Like Junior School Sports, the Senior School Sports Day is also kick-started by the March Past.

The day then proceeds into the track events. Various schools like Bishop Cottons Boys’ School, Clarence High, St. Germains’ and others are regular participants in the inter-school track events.M
