There are references to rowing at St Margaret's dating back to the start of the 20th century. However, it was the formation of the Brisbane Schoolgirls' Rowing Association (BSRA) in 1990 that really established rowing as prominent sport within the framework of St Margaret's. In 2005, the St Margaret's Rowing Shed, located just 1.5km from the school in Yowogerra Park on Breakfast Creek, was completed. This facility has proudly been renamed the 'Tony Elliot Rowing Shed' in honour of Toy's contribution to rowing at St Margaret's. The facility allows a full fleet of world-class boats and oars, as well as coaching tinnies and rowing machines to be stored and accessed by all students throughout the year. Rowing at St Margaret's is about developing life-long, worthwhile skills through training. Rowing requires a high level of teamwork, commitment and dedication. St Margaret's remains highly competitive within the regattas and he Head of the River competition.
