Rowing is incredibly popular at Fintona and is introduced to all Year 8 students during Term 3 as part of the Physical Education curriculum. From Year 9, girls are encouraged to join the rowing squad where we compete at regattas across Victoria throughout the rowing season.
The Rowing program at Fintona aims not only to produce well-prepared, fit, skillful, and successful crews but to develop the girls' self-esteem and positive attitude to sport. Rowing is a unique sport that requires individual determination and excellence, while also demanding a high level of teamwork. Fintona rowing encourages a family commitment through Friends of Rowing so that parents, rowers, and rowers' siblings can share the many high points as well as the challenges of each season.
As rowing at Fintona has grown over the years, so has the need for new equipment to keep us at the top of our game. Our immediate need is a new racing quad and set of oars.
