Old Brighton Grammar Boys at 'Sunset at the Sheds' Meliora Club

Meliora Club

The Meliora Club (formerly the Boaterie) is the oldest and one of the strongest parent support groups at BGS. Through rowing many boys and parents have forged life-long friendships.  


  • Provide a focal point for parents and friends at regattas for the parents and families of the boys involved in rowing
  • Plan and organise social occasions to involve parents and families in the Boat Club, making the rowing experience enjoyable for the whole family
  • Support BGS rowing through fundraising to provide the best equipment possible for the boys

How to get involved

Join the Committee

You are invited to attend the meetings of the Meliora Club. These meetings are relatively informal and include a report from the Director of Rowing, discussion of current business and planning up-coming social events.

Attend a function

Rowing is an expensive sport. The equipment required to operate and maintain a boat club is costly. The Meliora Club aims to raise $25,000 each year to assist in purchasing equipment.  This is primarily achieved through two major fundraising events

  • Sunset @ The Sheds – This event marks the beginning of a new rowing season and is held at our home on the Yarra: the Mercantile Boat Shed.
  • Boat Club Trivia Night – A fun event to be enjoyed by the Parents, held in late February, with many great items on auctions as well as an interesting Trivia Competition.
