Yarra Canoe & Kayak

The great opportunities available to students at Yarra Valley Grammar come from activities where students are able to participate in teams made up of a large range of year levels. The students are able to learn from, as well as bond with, students in the other year levels and this greatly assists them in gaining the confidence to achieve. Yarra Canoe & Kayak is one of these great opportunities.

We are a parent group set up to support the expanding Yarra Valley Grammar Canoe & Kayak Team. The team offers opportunities for Yarra students to participate in the challenge of canoeing and kayaking and competing throughout the year at various locations around Victoria. Yarra Canoe & Kayak parents form a friendly, social and informal committee which aims to meet once a term. Joining the group has resulted in a lot of fun for families and students in all year levels including past students who may join us and compete on the Old Yarra Team.

Parents have an opportunity to support their children in the team by providing help at events and working to raise funds to provide equipment and boats. With an increasing number of students participating in the team there is always room for more parents to be involved. Here is a chance to meet other parents who also enjoy being able to support their children through one of their passions. It’s a chance to meet, socialise and have fun with a broader range of families than just your child’s year level.
