A huge thank you to everyone who came and supported Burnside High School over the weekend and witnessed our most successful South Island Secondary Schools Rowing in recent years!!

My favourite quote from the regatta came from Hamish after the Novice four getting 4th in their A final "we didn't get the result we wanted but it's pretty cool getting to go out and race like that with my best mates" They absolutely gave it their all in that race and showed a lot of heart. Sometimes races don't go your way and it was so awesome that the boys picked themselves up and are ready to do it all over again.
