Takapuna Grammar School (TGS) Rowing Club is both a Rowing Club and a Rowing School, with a proud history of providing a secondary school rowing programme for 70 years, competing at both local and national level.
We pride ourselves on the spirit of achievement by participation, and our club policy is an inclusive one, welcoming all students who wish to participate.
We are a non-profit organisation, managed by a volunteer committee of parents, and are fully affiliated Club with the Amateur Rowing Association, and the Secondary Schools Rowing Association.
The core philosophy of our program is teaching our crew members how to achieve excellence through discipline, hard work, and perseverance.
Rowers at TGS form a tight knit social community across all age groups which seem to create lasting friendships and great role model/mentoring opportunities for younger rowers. The skills of teamwork, discipline, time management and leadership which rowing teaches flow into academic achievement and school leadership positions.
