Firbank has a highly successful rowing program. Established in 1992, the program has produced several rowers who have successfully competed at a national and international level. Olympic gold medalist James Tomkins provides consulting advice for the program.

Year 8 students can experience on land and on water rowing prior before committing to the program for the season.

The program runs from the end of Year 8 to Year 12. It includes dedicated rowing camps where students focus on improving technique, strength and fitness, and building successful teams ahead of the rowing season commencing.

Throughout the season students undertake extensive on land and on water training. Regattas are held in Geelong, Nagambie, Ballarat, and the Yarra River, and culminate in the Head of Schoolgirls in March each year.


The tennis program at Firbank offers students the opportunity to experience all aspects of the game including technical and tactical development in conjunction with social and competitive play. Having this exposure at a junior level, equips them with the skills to enjoy and play the game for a lifetime.
