Athletics 

Term 1 - Summer Code

Over the past ten years Islamia College participated in the AMS (Association of Muslim School) Athletics for high schools and Quadrangular Athletics for Muslim Primary Schools. This was exhilarating for our athletes to be competing against their fellow Muslims. However, for the athletic enthusiasts, there were no benefit in surpassing beyond the annual AMS competition or Quadrangular. We decided in 2012, when the Sports Department was established at Islamia College, to enrol forty athletes in the Western Province Table Bay Zone (the first leg of the WP Athletics) competition for High Schools. That year two of the forty athletes, Abdullah Bayat & Ismaeel Williams, made it through to the semi-finals and the Champs of Champs. In 2013, twelve athletes made it through to the Champs of Champs and in 2014 twenty five made it through to the Champs of Champs. 2015 was the first year when the Primary School enlisted in the WP athletic competitions producing our first WP Athlete ñ Bilqees Essa.

Our Schools (Primary School & High School) have the annual Interhouse Athletics competition during the First Term, where the four houses (Excellentia, Concordia, Invictus & Veritas) compete for dominancy.
