Cornwall School Games Rowing and Sailing Success


Newquay Tretherras Students took part in the Cornwall School Games Gig rowing and Sailing event at Mylor on 20th September 2016.

The Newquay school entered 4 teams that included a Year 7, 8 & 9 Mixed crew, a Year 10 & 11 Mixed crew, a Year 10 & 11 Girls grew as well as a Sailing crew.

In a tough competition, the Newquay Tretherras students achieved some fantastic results.

The Gig rowers came 2nd in both the Mixed Year 7, 8 & 9 crew and Girls Year 10 & 11 crew. Despite being against some all-boys crews and rowing well, the Mixed Year 10-11 crew came 5th.

In the sailing event, Isabel Perkins and Holly Cooper came 5th whilst Morgan and Sophie Cooper came 1st.

Mrs K Pender who co-ordinates the Newquay Tretherras Rowing Club commented, ‘All the students behaved impeccably and were a credit to the school as always. Congratulations to all the crews who competed with great Tretherras spirit.’
