Isaac Dommett grew up at a Shapland Swim School. His parents John and Sally opened the first Shapland franchise at Kallangur in 1992, so it is fair to say Isaac has swimming teaching in his blood. At the age of 17 Isaac starting teaching swimming and has been working for the family-owned and operated businesses at Everton Park and Kallangur for over 11 years.
Maddy, Isaac's partner, has been teaching for 9 years 6 of those years being with Shapland Swim Schools. Maddy also teachers at the two swim schools she assists in managing, Everton Park and Kallangur.
The Aura Shapland Swim School will feature the latest Shapland, unique heated state of the art teaching pool a design which has evolved over 7 decades. The pool will incorporate 10 different depths. This incredible variety of depths helps facilitate all skill levels and ages in the pool which also allows the teacher to keep children of different levels and ages always on the move and accelerates a pupil’s confidence as they grapple with this new aquatic environment.
Our Aura mineral pool will, like many other Shapland teaching pools use MagnaPool technology which ensures the pool water is gentler on a child’s skin and eyes. By locating the teaching pool in a fully enclosed outdoor space Shapland’s have been able to utilise the best of both worlds. A warm, friendly, well ventilated teaching area for our pupils and a separate air-conditioned viewing area for parents and siblings from which you can view all the action in the pool. It also means a lot more space in our change rooms.
With only three pupils per class in the pool at any one time your child will receive more individual attention. The pool is heated to 32 degrees Celsius all year round and all our instructors are Industry qualified with CPR, First aid and Blue Card certificates.

Call us today
Fill out the Booking Enquiries form or 'Look for a lesson' ( you can look and see what we have) if you can not find anything that suits you you can send the details through to the swim school and they will contact you. Once we have the information we will contact you to discuss a suitable time for your child to start their learn to swim experience, a life long life saving skill.
Free make up system should you miss a lesson.
You can take your child out of their class provided it is done any time before 8am on the day of their lesson, this can be done through the My SSS system online. If you have taken your child out using the My SSS system you do not need to contact the swim school. This will then entitle you to a make-up lesson. History has shown us that the most effective way to organize your child's make up swimming lesson is to use the My SSS system. It is the swim schools policy not to give out make up lessons more that one day in advance, the swim school relies on you to use the My SSS to book a make-up.
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.
MagnaPool technology powers the filtration and sanitizing system used at Everton Park. Unlike traditional pools where you end up soaking in a very dilute caustic soda solution (NaOh) in our manapool your child and our staff soak in a very different solution which is by far more gentle on the skin that traditional systems. So if your child suffers from any skin conditions you might like to consider enrolling in our program.
