High interest and participation in swimming has resulted in St Margaret's becoming one of the most successful schools within the QGSSSA competition, Andrews Cup competition and in state and national competitions. In 2021, we have extended our swimming program to introduce a Swim Club and Learn to Swim. The Learn to Swim program caters for members of the St Margaret’s community conducting classes for pre-prep and school aged children all year round.
