Moorooka Swim School
Welcome to Shapland Swim Schools Moorooka.
My name is Lucas Shapland, I am a fourth generation Swim teacher. I am also very happy to announce that the swim school is now officially back in the Shapland fold as Marie and I secured the franchise for the swim school and we are looking forward to the stability this agreement brings to the Shapland Swim School Moorooka. I first got in the water as a swim teacher in 1999 at the original Shapland Swim School in Clontarf Brisbane, which my grandparents (Bernie & Tuppy Shapland) built and founded in 1973. My parents (Norma & Chris Shapland) ran the swim school as I was growing up and gave me the fundamentals of water safety and swimming skills. I have gained not only experience as a teacher, but also the knowledge of children's capabilities during the learning process.
We provide semi private swimming lessons for children from 6 months, as well as stroke correction and mini squad training. We only have 3 pupils per class and a maximum number of 2 classes in the pool at any one time, this ensures your child will receive more individual attention. The pool is a specially designed teaching pool and is heated to 32 degrees Celsius all year round. These lessons take place at a private residence with plenty of off street parking, heated change rooms and an air conditioned viewing room.
Our aim is to provide a safe and fun environment during your child's development in water safety with patience and positive encouragement. All teachers are accredited to Australian Teaching standards.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Lucas and Marie
