The Confraternity Carnival has a new member school – Brisbane’s Villanova College has been accepted and will participate in 2023.
It’s a significant step for Villanova, which joins six of its fellow Associated Independent College (AIC) members in the historic Confraternity.
The addition of Villanova means all AIC member schools catering to boys will participate in next year’s Carnival hosted by St Laurence’s College.
Villanova College principal Paul Begg says his school is proud to join a Carnival that has developed a history of helping players to grow on and off the field.
“We are thrilled to be joining the Confraternity Carnival in 2023,” Mr Begg said.

“The Carnival is an opportunity for our students to embrace the tradition and test themselves physically and mentally.
“I thank all who supported this endeavour and we look forward to Villa’s first Confraternity Carnival in 2023.”
While Villanova is new to “Confro”, it has a strong rugby league history.
Queensland prop Christian Welch is a Villa Old Boy along with former Broncos premiership forward Brad Meyers, showcasing the calibre of league players from the College.
Villanova has a strong connection to rugby league with the school overlooking Langlands Park, home of the Brisbane Tigers.
Villanova has already had experience in the AIC’s annual rugby league competition, which takes place in Term 3.
“We are excited to see what the future holds for our rugby league program, and we can’t wait to take the field at the Confraternity Carnival in 2023,” Mr Begg said.
“We encourage all of our supporters to stay tuned for updates on our progress, and we look forward to representing Villanova College and the AIC with pride.”
