Adelaide High School Rowing Program
Adelaide High School is committed to providing all students with an opportunity to learn, develop and excel in rowing. With numerous students from Years 8-12 actively training and representing Adelaide High School, rowing is a popular summer sport with a competitive season which begins in late October with the Henley on Torrens Regatta in the city and culminates in the annual Head of the River Schools’ Regatta in late March/early April. The Head of the River regatta was founded in 1922 when St Peter’s College challenged Adelaide High School to a race in eights on the Henley course on the River Torrens. The race was won by Adelaide High and so began the Head of the River Regatta. From these small beginnings the event has grown into SA’s largest championship regatta.
