Not only were athletes and spectators treated to squeaky-clean bathroom facilities at Iona College’s Confraternity Carnival in Queensland recently, but they were also well-hydrated thanks to the team at ServiceFM.

ServiceFM has been in partnership with the Brisbane-based college for two years and was again at the frontline to ensure Queensland’s premier rugby league competition for Catholic and independent secondary schools – better known as ‘Confro’ – was conducted in a safe, sanitary environment.

The tournament, organised by Queensland Rugby League, is known for a high-quality of play with former school representatives including Johnathan Thurston, Wendell Sailor, Daly Cherry-Evans and Cameron Munster.



In addition to supplying a complimentary team of cleaners to ensure bathroom facilities at the carnival, hosted by Iona, were well-maintained throughout the event, ServiceFM also had a visual presence on the Monday of the carnival in the form of a ‘Hydration Station’.

As part of the set-up, the ServiceFM team gave out free water to student athletes competing at the event, and spectators – including parents, family members and staff – who were also in attendance.

Sadly, while the Confraternity Carnival was scheduled to run across six days – starting with a Sunday opening ceremony and finishing on Friday – the event was cut short after just three due to a snap Covid-19 lockdown.

ServiceFM State Manager (Queensland) Peter Watkins said while it was unfortunate the carnival was shortened, it was still an excellent opportunity to bolster the relationship with Iona College.

“Having the chance to work with Iona College to assist with the hosting of the 2021 Confraternity Carnival, by providing quality, complimentary cleaning services, was a highly-rewarding experience for ServiceFM,” he said.

“Our Hydration Station was also well-received by those at the event and provided us with a great networking opportunity with other local sponsors and businesses, while also showing our continued support for our valued partner, Iona College.”

The Queensland Independent Secondary Schools Rugby League, in a statement, praised Iona College for hosting this year’s carnival despite the unforeseen shutdown.

“Iona College has been a brilliant host. It’s been a wonderful carnival,” the statement read.

The spirit of play across (Monday and Tuesday) has been outstanding. The Spirit of Confraternity was upheld.

“While we are unable to play finals matches, we are grateful for the opportunities that more than 1230 students had to become Confro players.”
