3 MAGSROW Alumni at the world's premier rowing event!

Fergus McSwiney, Carl Pracey and Jonathan Winter are all racing at the Henley Royal Regatta this week! Fergus is rowing for Waikato, Carl for Cornell, and Jono for Yale.

This is the stuff our dreams are made of! Three of ours who all became MAGSROW graduates at the end of 2015 now go on to row at arguably the world's most prestigious rowing event, taking the strength, excellence and grit they built in their early days at MAGSROW through to representing world famous universities. Wow... fantastic work boys!!!

Ready Steady Go 2017/2018 Season.... and thank you Lynne and Kristine

Before we get stuck into the new season we do want to say a big Thank You to Lynne Taylor and Kristine Brothers for their tireless and gritty support of our squad over the last few years. Hope to see you both lakeside some time soon and don't worry we will always have a job for you to do  - if you miss us.  Thanks again. 

Maadi Cup NZSS Rowing Championships at Lake Karapiro from 27 March-2 April.

The MAGS Rowing squad continued to go from strength to strength in securing 11 final positions at the Maadi Cup NZSS Rowing Championships at Lake Karapiro from 27 March-2 April.


MAGS crews lined up in three A Finals and eight B Finals, up on our tally of two As and four Bs in 2016, at what is one of the largest high school sporting events in the southern hemisphere. More than 2000 students from over 120 schools took part.

The Under 16 Boys Four and Under 15 Boys Four won their B Finals, while another Under 15 Boys Four came a creditable 5th in the A Final. Our Under 15 Eight and Under 16 Eight also made A finals. Two or our girls' crews made B finals, finishing among the top 13 in the country.

Headmaster Mr Patrick Drumm attended the two finals days of this prestigious event, and said the positive attitude among the squad and support crew was impressive. "Our success in the younger age groups gives us an encouraging platform to build on for the future," said Mr Drumm.
