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.

Paralympian began swimming lessons at Kallangur

Dear John and Sally,
I would like to thank you for teaching me how to swim. Over the years you have taught me lots about swimming. Thanks to you I have improved my swimming very much and I enjoy it so much. I will always remember you and the fun times Marcus and I have had in your classes. Thanks to my first coach maybe one day I will swim for Australia. 

Love Brenden.

Success in short space of time

When my daughter started with John at Shapland Kallangur, she had all the confidence but lacked the ability which I felt was a dangerous combination.  John, had her swimming beautifully very quickly. I can’t believe how far she has come in such a small space of time. She listens to John and really wants to make him proud of her – it really matters to her. Maddison loves her lessons which, as a mum makes it so simple to get her going every Thursday afternoon even through the Winter! The small groups means she doesn’t get bored and has more one on one time with her coach, we also love the make-up system which allows free catch ups if we can’t make a session.I have in the past and will continue to recommend John and all the team at Shapland Kallangur.

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.

Great support and encouragement

With all our 3 children, we have tried 3 swim schools in the area over the years and I know we have made the right choice now with Shapland Swim School, Everton Park. Our children are very settled there and doing very well with their swimming now. They are genuinely excited to see their swim teachers and are eager to get into the pool. Isaac is great with our eldest child and is supportive and encourages her stroke and breathing. Our two younger children just love seeing Emma's smiling face to greet them in the pool and Emma does a great job in teaching them and challenging them within their comfort levels. Thanks Shapland.

Kids stay focussed

Shaplands Everton Park provides quality swim classes that run like clockwork. My kids stay focussed as there are no distractions on the pool deck. We watch from the airconditioned comfort of the viewing room. All three of my kids have become happy, confident swimmers due to this exceptional swimming school. Best of all they love going!

Fun and productive swimming lessons

The fabulous amazing Anne our swimming instructor at Stretton meets the needs of the children's personality and learning styles and makes the class fun while extremely productive, small classes and the very friendly manager Gerry knows everyone by their names. Also the catch up lessons a blessing when your child has health issues and can be away lessons at a time.

Care and Compassion shown

Hudson has started lessons only recently (after 18 months without lessons and originally starting at another school) and I couldn't have hoped for a better school. It was a little difficult at first but the care and compassion shown to Hudson during the first few lessons made it an easy transition and one he adapted to quickly.
I couldn't have asked for better teachers who are strong and clear without being intimidating, stern or unhappy. I have a little boy who talks about Isaac and Emma in such a positive way that, I couldn't be happier for making the choice to sign up with Shapland. Hudson looks forward to his class and has progressed so quickly.
Thank you to everyone at Shapland for making us feel welcome with a special thank you to Emma, who sat with Hudson during lessons until he was comfortable and Isaac for being a great teacher and so very patient. Grace Stephens (mother of Hudson O'Neill)


Patient, kind and encouraging staff

Both our children have been taught swimming at  Shapland Everton Park for the past 7 yrs. Every single staff member have been amazing in their patience, kindness and encouragement. We haven't needed to look anywhere else.

Hard work pays off

Hannah - student at Shapland Swim Schools Everton ParkHere 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.
