The St Peter’s College community would like to congratulate old scholar Jeremy Beale (FLL 2021), who recently received a rowing scholarship at UC (University of California), Berkeley: one of the top rowing colleges in America.

Jeremy started at SPSC in 2016 as a Year 7 student. He began rowing in Year 9 with the Junior crews. In Year 11 he was moved into the 1st VIII and was a member of the SPSC crew that won the Australian Schoolboy’s Eight at Lake Barrington, Tasmania in 2021.

Since graduating from in 2021 Jeremy has continued to excel in rowing and has been training with the South Australian Sports Institute program. At the National Championships earlier this year he won a gold medal in both the Single Scull and Under 21 Men’s Doubles and finished second in the Under 23 Men’s Quad Scull.

Jeremy will be leaving for UC Berkeley in August this year. He will be studying a business degree and is hoping to gain entrance into the college’s prestigious business school, which is ranked in the top three in the United States.

Jeremy is coming to St Peter’s College to speak with students who are interested in applying for scholarships and studying in America. He will also be discussing the importance of goal setting and how to balance academic commitments with sport. An email will be sent to students shortly regarding his presentation.
