history of head of school girls rowing regatta victoria

1996 VIC Head of Schoolgirls' Regatta

The host school this year was Carey Grammar School.

The regatta continued its considerable growth with 27 events, 38 schools and 1275 competitors.

After the introduction of sculling races in 1995, Susie Palfreyman in her President's Report in 1996 stated her hope that over the next few years that such racing would consolidate and build to place greater emphasis on sculling for younger rowers. Her hope was realised with most school programs adopting sculling as the preferred pathway into the sport.

The complexity of hosting the regatta without prior experience was evident. Rob Blair prepared an operations manual for host schools in 1995 to guide them in how to run the regatta. The detailed manual was critical in enabling schools to manage the complexities of the event.
