Head of the River

On Sunday 14 March, in lashing wind and rain, the annual Head of the River was held at Penrith. After the event was cancelled in 2020, the rowers and coaches were very excited about competing this year. The trying weather created extremely difficult conditions but our students displayed their true Ascham values of ambition and resilience.

Despite the rain, the girls achieved some wonderful results. Special congratulations to the following students for these placements:

  • 1st in the Year 8 Double Scull—Sabrina Koczkar and Lucy Yabsley
  • 2nd in the Year 9 Double Scull—Grace Carter and Kitty Zusak
  • 2nd in the Year 10 Double Scull—Portia Koczkar and Audrey Abeywickrema
  • 2nd in the Year 10 Single Scull—Sophia Miller


All students competed admirably and our supportive parents made sure the girls were fed, hydrated, warm and as dry as possible.

It was a very memorable Head of the River!
