An Education Designed for Girls


St Patrick's College Townsville is pleased to offer a varied extracurricular sporting program; however, information is subject to change if and when we respond to Queensland Health roadmaps for COVID-19.


Each year students compete at the annual swimming, cross country and athletics house carnivals for the House Cup and the Spirit Award.  These competitions are friendly and help to build House and College Spirit, as well as confidence, teamwork and resilience amongst girls. Students placing  highly in these competitions earn a position in the St Patrick’s College Interschool carnival teams. The College has a history of success in Interschool carnivals, placing within the top three schools for each carnival.


A wide array of sports are on offer at St Patrick’s College through our extensive Block Sports program. Block sport is a great way  for students to meet new people, learn and further their skillset across a variety of sports, including:

  • Netball
  • Basketball
  • Volleyball
  • Waterpolo
  • AFL
  • Touch football
  • Soccer
  • Rugby Union



The 2021 season will progress and expressions of interests are needed by 5.00pm on Tuesday, 9 February . Interested participants should forward the following details to

  • Student name

North Queensland All Schools Championships is an annual touch tournament held in Townsville each year to decide the region’s top touch football schools. Each year St Patrick’s College girls work hard over 8 weeks to train and prepare for the competition in the Open, Junior and Minor divisions. St Patrick’s have had a successful track record, with top four places achieved in 2018 and 2019.


Rowing is a sport that demands a commitment of time and energy. Girls involved in the St Patrick’s College rowing program  train rigorously and compete in interschool rowing regattas held over selected weekends.  In 2019, three teams progressed through to the State Championships held in Rockhampton.

For the past two years, students have participated in the 5km junior run along the beautiful Strand waterfront as part of the McDonald’s Townsville Running Festival.  With growing support each year, our girls experience competitive running in an international event, while helping to raise much needed fund for the Ronald McDonald House. The College Running Club, which operates mornings and afternoons throughout the year, also supports students leading up to this event.


The College’s most coveted sports event is the annual Sportswomen’s Awards. Students have the chance to be selected for the Rae Cole Memorial Award for Junior Sportswoman of the year and the Pavia Family Award for senior Sportswoman of the year.
