One of the highlights of the College’s Sporting Calendar has been the tradition of entering teams in the QLD Independent Netball & Rugby League Competitions. The annual carnivals are held each year, attracting the finest Independent Secondary School Netball & Rugby League teams in Queensland. Each year the carnival is hosted by a different school and in 2017 the competition moves to Brisbane.
