All Saints’ College is one of Australia’s leading independent Anglican coeducational Pre-Kindergarten – Year 12 schools, where students are encouraged to ‘have a go’ and their diverse strengths and talents are nurtured, valued and celebrated throughout the College community. Rowing is one of the schools many cocurricular programs where students are taught valuable life skills such as discipline, team work and time management. However, rowing isn’t just a technical sport but a social one as well, and it is this supportive community surrounding the sport which helps to develop well-rounded individuals who are confident and capable.
All Saints’ College students began rowing out of CUBC in early 2000, an initiative thought up by ASC teacher and CUBC life member Jo Boserio. ‘Mrs B’ as the kids like to call her, has been a lover of rowing since she first joined CUBC in 1971. She has since gone on to represent the club at National Championships from 1976 to 1982 and was also CUBC Club President for a number of years. She has also been awarded Rowing WA's Oarswoman of the Year and in 2006 Club Coach of the Year for her dedication and commitment to the Curtin University Boat Club.
Currently, ASC competes in the All Schools Regatta Series which comprises four regattas held at the Champion Lakes International Regatta Centre during Terms 2 & 3. These regatta's are a great way for ASC rowers to compete against rowers from the same year level from other schools located all around Western Australia. Students also have the option to compete in Singles, Doubles, Quads, and Eights in Years 9, 10, and open events, whilst also having the opportunity to compete in boys, girls and mixed crews.
As the All Saints College Rowing Program approaches its 22nd competitive season in 2021 the partnership between ASC and CUBC is as strong as ever with Jo supported by a number of coaches many of whom are ex All Saints' Rowers who are now current members of the Curtin University Boat Club.
