The 2020 year has been a tumultuous one for everyone on the planet. However, not even a global pandemic has stopped the 38th Qld All Schools from going ahead.
In absolutely, terrific weather (uncommon for All Schools recently) the event saw some 350 teams in 7 divisions do battle over 5 days. Over 1400 games of touch were played and the 3500 participants revelled in the freedom that only a game of touch footy can bring. After being locked up for most of the year, the lucky students from all over Queensland had a ball – literally!
Qld All Schools is incredibly proud of everyone involved in Qld All Schools 2020 for their cooperation, understanding and support of all COVID Safe measures that were in place at the event. Thank you to parents for respecting our no spectator rule, we hope we can welcome back spectators and visitors from all over Australia and the world once again in 2021!
After the round robin was completed, the finals series sorted the teams who progressed to the grand finals and ultimately the following grand finals were played.
St Mary’s Toowoomba (6) defeated Keebra Park SHS (1)
Cavendish Road SHS (4) defeated All Hallows (3)
Emmaus Rockhampton (8) defeated St Joseph’s Toowoomba (3)
Keebra Park SHS (6) defeated The Cathedral College (3)
Emmaus College Rockhampton (7) defeated Cavendish Road SHS (6)
The Cathedral College (6) defeated Coombabah (2)

The Overall champion school calculated on performances of all teams entered by a school, saw two schools The Cathedral College from Rockhampton and Sunshine coast school Chancellor College finish on 70 points. On a countback, The Cathedral College was awarded the trophy as they recorded the highest ranked title being the 18 Boys, just ahead of Chancellor’s 18 girls’ title. No matter, these two schools are leading lights in the sport in schools in Queensland. Congratulations to their staff and students.
Qld All Schools would like to thank our major sponsor Brisbane City Council as well as Inferno Sports Clothing for their on-going support of the event and school sport. Also, the event could not have been achieved without the commitment and expertise of Queensland Touch Football and their staff who have worked tirelessly for months.
Finally, appreciation to Brisbane Metropolitan Touch – long-time supporters of the event, as well as Alex Wong and his referee team who provided all the officials.
Let’s all look forward to a healthy and safe 2021. We look forward to seeing you again next year at QLD All Schools, 6-10 October 2021, please keep an eye on your e-mail regarding exciting announcements about the 2021 event, which we hope to announce in the coming months.
