Wilston State School P&C Swimming

The Wilston State School P&C Association takes pride in offering a diverse array of swimming programs designed for children ranging from beginners to those aiming for competitive success at local, regional, state, and national levels.

In Australia, it's crucial for our children to develop proficient swimming skills.

Our Learn to Swim welcomes children starting at the age of 4 years, with three swim squads available for graduates of the Learn to Swim program, and a Friday Night Swim Club affiliated with Queensland Swimming, ensuring opportunities for all children to engage in swimming while providing a safe, fun and social environment for all.

All our instructors are AUSTSWIM accredited instructors and hold a valid Blue Card. They deliver passionate and efficient lessons, paving the way for students who wish to advance to join a squad under Coach Mark.

WSSASC's mission is to provide a structured program of swimming events for its members, fostering personal satisfaction and enjoyment through ongoing improvement in swimming.

This mission will be realized by engaging quality coaches, organizing and managing events throughout the season, and nurturing a robust community spirit among the club's members and their families.


The Wilston State School swimming pool was one of the first Queensland school pools built and reflects community efforts in fundraising and preliminary site work.

Opened on 10 November 1923, the reinforced concrete pool was originally 23 metres long and 7.6 metres wide. A year later, a long timber dressing shed with a brick base, weatherboard walls and a gable roof was built to the west of the pool, and is now listed as a heritage building.

In 1970, as part of the school's Jubilee project, the swimming pool was widened to six lanes and lengthened to 25 metres. At the time, the pool represented 48 years of swimming history at the school and the pool update was considered a suitable commemoration to all who contributed to it. This project was funded jointly by the Wilston State School Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) and the Queensland Government.  In 2016 the pool was given a face lift with new starting blocks, lane ropes, flooring around the pool, and the pool itself was painted.


The promotion of water safety, as well as acknowledging the value of swimming to children’s health, were key motivating factors to the establishment of all school pools in the early 1900’s. Thanks to the efforts of the school and pool community, water safety, fun and fitness remain key priorities for WSSASC today.
