The Swim Club is a sub-committee of the Wishart State School P&C Association and therefore we have a number of policies and guidelines that we must adhere to ensure the School maintains the health and safety of all its students and members who come onto the school grounds. The Swim Club is obligated to remind all Members and their guests that when on the School grounds all persons must adhere to all Queensland Education, Wishart State School, Wishart P&C Association and Wishart Swim Club Rules, Policies and directions. Specifically Student Protection and Welfare is paramount to ensure all our Swimmers are safe in and around the pool environment.
