This year Ara Lympics was bigger than ever before, with fourteen different events spread across the Christchurch City, Woolston and Timaru campuses. The events, which ran between 4-13 April, were organised to coincide with the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Over 170 students threw themselves into a variety of sports, games and activities including: soccer, dodgeball, basketball, netball and a quiz. The most popular activities were futsal, volleyball and a new addition to Ara Lympics, PlayStation 3.

This annual inter-department tournament stemmed from an idea shared at Student Council in 2016, for classmates to compete together to score points for their department.
