Gold Coast / Gaven Swim School
We supply semi-private swimming lessons with only three children per class, ensuring each child receives more one-on-one attention with their teacher. And by having a maximum of just two classes in the pool per time slot, we reduce distractions and noise, making for a more focused lesson time.
Our friendly and highly experienced managers Sandra & Alex, along with our swimming teachers are all committed to making you and your child's learn-to-swim experience the best one possible.
The pool is heated to 32 degrees Celsius year-round, change rooms and toilets are located pool-side. Parents can choose to view a lesson in air-conditioned comfort, or go poolside whilst siblings can play in our large well equipped secure play area.
All our instructors are Industry qualified (e.g. AUSTSWIM, SwimEd), and Blue Card holders. Shapland Swim Schools Gold Coast is a Swim Australia registered facility.
This facility is a purpose Learn-to-Swim pool with 8 different depth levels to accommodate the student from beginner to advanced swimmer. The pool design incorporates over seven decades of experience in teaching children to swim, as well as optimal building and poolside facilities.
Located in Gaven, not far from Westfield Helensvale the school is very central and easily accessed being just off the M1.

Log into MySSS to take control of your lessons. Features include cancelling a lesson if you are going to be away or booking a makeup lesson when you are ready to have one. You can also pay your account, book a sibling in for classes and look for a new time for your child if you want to swap days.
Free make up system
If you cancel a lesson before 8am, you are entitled to a free makeup lesson. To cancel a lesson, you can either log into MySSS, or phone the swim school.
To book a makeup lesson, we have found that the best way to schedule that class is via MySSS. Alternatively, you can call the swim school on the morning you require the makeup.
Over the years we have found that once you break your child's swimming lesson routine (come at a different day and time for a makeup lesson) it is very easy to forget the makeup swimming lessons time and day. It is swim school policy not to give out make up lessons more that one day in advance.
A water temperature of 32 degrees Celsius (all year round) is crucial for your child's comfort. Normally children have a low percentage body fat and if the water is below 32 degrees Celsius then they start to feel the cold. Any parents who are in the water with their child will understand how important it is to feel comfortable in that environment.
