Swimming School-CEO Statement
As the CEO of Shapland Swim Schools I am dedicated to ensuring we deliver the best possible learn-to-swim experience to every child entrusted to our care and tuition. We strive to give you friendly and professional service, an easy and accessible online interface, and a comfortable learning environment for both you and your child.
I personally feel very lucky that I was taught to swim correctly many years ago by Chris Shapland. It has given me the confidence to be a keen surfer, ocean swimmer, friendly competitor in the pool, and allowed me to meet many interesting people who have enriched my life’s experiences.
By enrolling your child in a Learn to Swim program, you are giving them a 'skill for life' that will open up many opportunities for them. We commend you.

Operations Manager Statement
My vision was to supply smaller more personalized specialist learn to swim centers throughout south east Queensland where we could offer semi private lessons so that your child could get more individual attention. My family have leased public pools and owned indoor heated pools where the atmosphere (humid and odoriferous) and environment (large classes and lots of classes in the pool at any one time) was not ideal to teach children and adults their Personal Aquatic Survival Skills.
In 1973, after twenty six years in the swimming industry, my parents "Bernie" and "Tuppy" Shapland opened the first of these specialised swim schools, (which still operates very successfully), on which all the other Shapland Swim Schools were modelled.
By using franchising as a tool I was able to deliver this dream (smaller more personalised centers) as our franchisees are able to supply the most important ingredients for a successful swim school, stability, 100% commitment and passion for making a difference in childrens lives.
As Operations Manager, I am dedicated to ensuring that every program at every school meets the high standard I set for Shapland Swim Schools.
