QISSRL  CQUniversity Confraternity 2024 Carnival | Destination Townsville

Ignatius Park College is thrilled to host the 2024 CQUniversity Confraternity Carnival at the esteemed Brothers Rugby League Club, with additional fields at Ryan Catholic College in the picturesque city of Townsville from June 24 - June 29. As a College Community we are energized and proud as we anticipate the arrival of schools from across Queensland to this prominent event which is steeped in history and tradition since inception in the early 1980's. Hosting the Carnival not only highlights competitive spirit but also offers a unique opportunity to display the warm hospitality for which Townsville is renowned, during one of the best times of the year!

As we prepare to welcome schools and players from all over Queensland, we're excited to highlight the natural beauty and cultural vibrancy of the Townsville region. Our stunning coastal environment, tropical landscapes, and diverse wildlife are sure to leave an unforgettable impression on our visitors. Beyond the excitement of the Rugby League action all week, we look forward to demonstrating the genuine warmth and community spirit of our College and the city of Townsville, ensuring a welcoming, inclusive, and exhilarating atmosphere for everyone involved.

The CQUniversity Confraternity Shield Carnival is set to be a spectacular showcase of talent, sportspersonship, and community spirit, significantly enhancing the profile of the Townsville region. This event will not only spotlight Ignatius Park College to the rest of the state but all of our local North Queensland schools as well as showcase unique local businesses and tourism, drawing attention to the diverse attractions of our vibrant city.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Mr. Peter Elmore, President of the Queensland Independent Secondary Schools Rugby League, and his committee for their trust in us. Special thanks also go to Mr. Justin Wilkins, CEO of Brothers Leagues Club, Mr. Adrian Thomson, Football Operations Manager at Townsville & Districts Mendi Blackhawks, and Mrs. Candi Dempster, Principal of Ryan Catholic College, for their crucial support in hosting the Carnival. We look forward to Seeing You There
