Maragon compete in both track & field events in term 1 & 3. Term 1 is designated to those top achievers scoring well on the ABSA table and wanting to explore further Provincial and/or National opportunities. In contrast, the term 3 athletics are only track events against other English Schools, where there is more emphasis on teams, rather than individuals.
