Clontarf Swim School
Welcome to Shapland Swim School Clontarf. We are the original Shapland Swim School which was established by "Bernie and "Tuppy" Shapland in 1973 and has operated continually on this site since then. We supply semi private swimming lessons with only three students per class and one class in the pool at any one time ensuring your child will receive more individual attention in a calm and friendly environment. The pool is heated to 32 degrees Celsius all year round. These lessons take place at a private residence with plenty of off street parking, viewing room and air conditioned change rooms.
The swim school is owned and operated by Marcele and Andrew Cowley.
All of our staff are either AUSTSWIM or Swim Australia qualified, hold a current blue card and First Aid Certificate. Andrew and I as well as all of our staff find great enjoyment in providing your child with the best possible Personal Aquatic Survival Skill tuition.
Please contact the swim school for more information.
