My son asks to go swimming all the time
We love all the instructors! The personalised attention from small class sizes and of course just being in the water. My son asks every day to go swimming at the moment.
Excellent attention to daughter
I really enjoy being able to watch my 15 month old little girl learn to swim with Daddy through the large windows as I can see all the giggles (from both of them) and I know that she is in good hands with her teacher. I like the fact that there are only 3 children in a class at any one time so I find the attention on my daughter is excellent. Also the temperature of the water is a beautiful 32 degrees so it is easy to hop in all year round. My daughter loves it so much and I am so glad to have such a great swimming school close by, so thank you to all the team at Shapland.
Wonderful year of swimming lessons
Thank you Pamela for a wonderful year. Our son Jackson has loved swimming on a Saturday morning and I really enjoy coming too. We can't wait till our other son Mitchell can so get a place.
I've read everyone of your newsletters and each has brought a smile to my face.
Thank you for what you do, you do it well.
Hard work pays off
Here is a photo of Hannah after her swimming carnival today. They split them up in their classes into ability levels – she is medium level. She placed in each race – third in the kick board race (although it was a tie for second J), second in the noodle race and second in the ball race (ball is held like a kick board). In the second and third races she had so much determination to beat the little boy that had won in the first race, with perfect kicking she very nearly mowed him down and was a whole body length in front of everyone else.
She was so proud of herself and I just wanted to thank Jasmine for her hardwork with Hannah. I know it hasn’t been easy but the persistence is paying off.
Hannah has Retained Neonatal Reflexes – so coordination is poor and so is the strength in her neck and shoulders – both things required for swimming! But after 12 weeks with a kinesiologist and the understanding from Jasmine each Saturday, and some huge adjustments to diet she is doing really well, both with physical activity as well as academically. Thank you.
Amazed at the change!
Hi Michael and Diana (Carindale)
I took Olivia to Chandler for a swim on Sunday - the first time we'd been swimming since she started classes with Shapland (her teacher is Johnny). On previous trips to the pool she has been scared and it hasn't been a pleasant experience but I was amazed at the change in her this time. She showed me all the things she has been learning in class - 'monkeying' along the edge,climbing out, jumping in and paddling and kicking to me as I stood further and further away. We even went on the waterslide - twice!! Olivia was like a different person, I was amazed and delighted to see her enjoying being in the water. I just wanted to pass this on to you and say thank you so much - your methods are getting amazing results with Olivia!
Kind regards Deb Pratt
Confidence quickly gained
Our daughter has gained confidence very quickly since coming to Shapland Swim School. She adores her teacher, Robyn, who is just great with her and the other kids. Robyn is very calm, patient and has an amazing ability to give kids the confidence they need in the pool.

Less Distractions at Shaplands
My 12 month old son has come on in leaps and bounds since starting at Shapland Swim School. In fact he has learned more in 4 weeks at Shapland than he did after 5 months of swimming lessons somewhere else. I feel that the small swimming group and only two classes in pool at once has made a big improvement as my son is not so distracted. The staff at Shapland are very helpful and our swimming teacher Emma is just lovely. She is so gentle and encouraging with my son and I'm sure that's why he has learned so much so fast. I also appreciate how Emma knows exactly where my son is up to so we can work on things like him holding his breathe under water. The pool itself is very clean and a pleasure to swim in. I can't recommend Shapland Swim School high enough and most of friends have already swapped over to it.
Teaching children to be water wise
Shapland, Everton Park employs professional, experienced and friendly swimming instructors. They focus on teaching children the correct way to swim all the strokes, and more importantly to be water-wise too. My children love the extra attention they get from being in a small class size of 3.
Just started and very impressed
Ted started with you 3 weeks ago and i just wanted to say I am beyond impressed with your school and in particular Teds teacher Heidi!
Ted has always been a big water baby but was a bit scarred by our previous swimming school experience with a really terrible teacher in an very overcrowded class. I truly cannot believe what a remarkable change I've seen in him and his swimming in just 3 short weeks-all thanks to Heidi, so thank you a million! We are so happy to be a part of your school!

6 years of fabulous swimming lessons
After 6 years of fabulous swimming lessons with you without a single break, thanks for all that you have done over these many years. Having a reason to get out the house every week was incredible for my sanity during those early years of parenting and the support and genuine caring that you have shown my boys has been truly wonderful. As you already probably know, I recommend you to everyone I know and will continue to do so. Samantha (Shapland Swim School Stretton)
