The Wishart Sharks Swim Club is dedicated to providing an active swimming environment for the local community. Our home is within the grounds of the Wishart State School and as such we have a specific focus on encouraging young swimmers.
We welcome the involvement of the local community and encourage all swimmers in the Wishart and surrounding areas to come and compete in our club meet each Friday night of the swimming season. Parents, Grand Parents and Guardians can also come have a swim on Friday nights to show the younger swimmers we can still participate.
The club meets every Friday night from the first week in Term 4 until the last week of Term 1 the following year, except school holidays. All ages and swimming abilities welcome.
Wishart Swim Club is located at the Wishart State School pool on Morella St, Wishart.

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.
