On Saturday, 20 August we co-hosted Stuartholme/Brisbane Girls’ Grammar regatta and I am proud to say the girls represented the school so beautifully. Congratulations to the rowing girls on another wonderful regatta. The girls won 11 x 1st places and 1 x 2nd place. Out of the 17 crews entered, 12 of them achieved 1st place – well done girls.

The girls have 1 regatta remaining – the Head of the River, this Saturday 27 August.

This is the main event of the season where points are counted, medals and trophies are awarded! I hope to see as many supporters as possible cheering on our rowers.
