St Catherine's School, established in 1856 is the oldest Anglican girls School in Australia with 1050 students from Kindergarten to Year 12.
St Catherine's rowing program, is open to students, parents, staff and our wider community. The program incorporates healthy lifestyle patterns and a discipline that assists the development of strong character with sound time management skills. There are many options for students to contest regattas, either individuals or as members of a quad, an eight or a double.
St Catherine's rowing competes against both clubs and schools, building strong relationships with our extended community. The highlight of the rowing calendar is the annual SGHOR (School Girl Head of River) regatta.
St Catherine's is now recognised as a notable force in girls rowing having launched its start-up rowing program in 2011. Our thanks to the generosity of a few friends of the school who donated two boats so the squad could get started. With the high cost of maintaining and building our program, the support of our community is critical to the growth of St Catherine's rowing.
The rowing project offers new opportunities for our students to excel in sport and enables a wider offering to our students Years 7 - 12 to participate as a team. Our students and their families currently benefit from the program.
