The St Catherine’s Rowing Club has enjoyed a relatively short but illustrious history. Starting in 1987, the program quickly became one of the largest and most successful in the country.

Based at the Mercantile Rowing Club on the Yarra River, St Catherine’s rowers compete at various club regattas leading into the annual Head of the Schoolgirls Regatta, in which the School has enjoyed much success.

St Catherine’s School boasts one of the most experienced group of coaches on the river bank along with state of the art equipment.

  • Enhance the physical, mental and personal development of students through the enjoyment of Rowing
  • Challenge girls to achieve their personal best through teamwork and commitment
  • Foster friendships and School spirit amongst rowers, coaches, parents and staff.
