St Patrick's College Townsville is pleased to offer a varied extracurricular sporting program:
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. Students involved in the St Patrick’s College Townsville rowing program train rigorously and compete in local and regional rowing regattas. Our College is part of a Combined Rowing Program with Ignatius Park College and St Margaret Mary’s College under Head Coach, Harrison Parks.
NQ ALL SCHOOLS TOUCH
The NQ 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 meets 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. These competitions are friendly and help to build House and College Spirit, as well as confidence, teamwork and resilience. Students placing highly in these competitions earn a position in the St Patrick’s College Townsville Interschool carnival teams. The College has a history of success in Interschool carnivals, placing within the top three schools for each carnival.
