Rowing

Macarthur has had a rowing programme for several years with crews competing in regattas since 2005.  Over the last few seasons the School’s Rowing Programme has had great success with students making the finals of CIS Schoolboys and Schoolgirls Head of the River as well as NSW State Championships.  We have also had success at interstate Independent School Regattas.  The 2010/11 Rowing season was Macarthur’s most successful season to date with crews winning 7 races in both the School Boy and School Girl Regattas.

The Macarthur Rowing Programme conducts its on water training at either Penrith Rowing CLub on the Nepean River or the Sydney International Regatta Centre (SIRC) Penrith, the venue of 2000 Olympic Games an incredible international facility for our rowers to train at.  This venue is often used for the National Championships as well as being the venue for the World Rowing Championships in 2013.
