Girls in Years 9 to 12 have the opportunity to trial and train for the College Rowing Program. Girls are selected to compete in various crews.
Crews train at the Genazzano/Xavier boat sheds in Kew, also along the Yarra River and Maribyrnong River, to prepare for weekend regattas, in Terms 4 and 1, including the Head of School Girls Regatta, on the Barwon River in. An introductory ‘Learn to Row’ program is also run for Year 8 students in Term 3 of each year.
Aims of the junior program:
Students have the opportunity to receive colour points in line with College policy. To qualify for a colour point, a student must participate once a week during a term (for a non-training team) or twice weekly a term for a training team. Participation must involve a minimum 80% attendance at both training and matches.

We hope that, regardless of the results at the end of each season, our students feel a strong sense of achievement and pride from the commitment they have made.
