Rowing in Secondary Schools
In recent years rowing has obtained a growing following in secondary schools. In 1947 the rowing council donated the Maadi Cup, won by the New Zealand Army eight in Egypt, for competition among secondary schools' eight-oared crews. The rowing medals and oars won by Archbishop R. Owen have also been presented as trophies for schoolboy competitions. In this connection it may be noted that, of recent years, most of New Zealand's champions and representatives began rowing at school.
