Year 7 Learn to Row

In Week 7 of this term our Year 7 students had the opportunity to visit the TSS boat sheds, learn all about our rowing program which commences from Year 8, meet some of the coaches and also pick up an oar and try their hand in a rowing quad. This is a wonderful experience for our students as they get a firsthand taste of the commitment and drive it takes to be part of the St Hilda’s Rowing Community.

The St Hilda’s Sport team loves to be kept up to date with our girls’ achievements across a wide range of sports. Please email with any sporting news that we can recognise and celebrate!
