IGSSA Rowing Regatta 2019
On Sunday February 22nd IGSSA hosted the annual IGSSA Rowing Regatta at the Sydney International Regatta Centre. It was a beautiful day on the water and I would like to acknowledge the spirit of the rowers, staff and officials for contributing to a very successful regatta. Congratulations to Pymble Ladies College, the overall champions of the day, Loreto Kirribilli for taking home the handicap champion trophy and St Catherine’s school for being the most improved. As always, Donna Baker (LOK) coordinated the carnival with great organisation and extensive expertise. We feel exceptionally lucky to have her as our IGSSA convener and extend a very special thank you for her efforts.
I would also like to recognise the Tara students who return each year to assist with the presentations. The girls are required to be in full school uniform for the entire day and I am always impressed by their enthusiasm and general behaviour. I’m sure this is a direct reflection of their Head of Sport, Ngaire Musto who is always nearby when help is needed.
Finally I would like to thank Jenny Walton and Paul Brotherson from the IGSSA office for their contribution on the day. Paul ran the medal presentations and ensured that the day ran on time without incident. Jenny, as always, works tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that the day ran smoothly. I am sure we would be lost without her, so thank you Jenny for all you do!
