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.
Sport extracurricular Opportunities:
A wide array of sports are on offer at St Patrick’s College Townsville 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:
- Touch football
- Rugby Union
The College fields a number of teams in the local Wednesday Night Netball competition.
Rowing is a sport that demands a commitment of time and energy. Girls involved in the St Patrick’s College Townsville rowing program train rigorously and compete in interschool rowing regattas held over selected weekends. St Patrick’s College Townsville rows with Ignatius Park and St Margaret Mary’s College, and the Rowing Coordinator for the three schools is Mr Harrison Park.
Please contact Catherine Rentoule, the Rowing Team Manager, for more information.
NQ ALL SCHOOLS TOUCH
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 the girls work hard over 8 weeks to train and prepare for the competition in the Open, Junior and Minor divisions.
TOWNSVILLE RUNNING FESTIVAL
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.
INTERHOUSE & INTERSCHOOL CARNIVALS
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.
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.

We recognise their ongoing deep spiritual connection to this Country, and the care they gave for thousands of years. We also acknowledge the Bindal people as the neighbouring Custodians of their Country. We pay our respects to the Elders, past, present and emerging and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples here today.
