Shapland have a highly effective swim program delivered by excellent and friendly instructors who my children have loved. My children have now become competent and safe swimmers. Thank you Shapland!

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.

Patient and amazing teacher

thank you card, Shapland Swim SchoolsJohn, thank you so much for the last four years. You are amazing witht he boys and have such patience! When I told Aiden last night that today would be his last lesson, he cried for about an hour! That in itself demonstrates what an impact you've had on the boys! 

All the very best,
Mary.


Parents confident in toddler's abilities, thanks to Shaplands

We enrolled our son Chace to start swimming at 6 months because we were building a pool at our house and wanted to ensure he could it safely. Shapland has turned our son into a living, breathing, fish. At just two and a half he now loves the water. He can swim unassisted and confidently in our backyard pool without any problems at all. He can do entire laps by himself and he can swim faster than me. I would never leave my child alone near a pool, but I know if he ever did fall into the pool he would be able to swim to the side and climb out without any difficulty at all. The teachers are fantastic and they really care about the kids, the mineral water pool is indoors, heated and usable all year round, and the facilities are just great. We’ve now enrolled our new born son, Beau, as 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.

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.

Out of sight improvements

My boys have been swimming at Shapland Everton Park for nearly 3 years. We changed from another local swimming school because I felt the boys weren't improving but since we have been at Shaplands the boys have improved out of sight. They both have become extremely good swimmers and I honestly believe it is because of the dedication and expertise of the instructors that have made my boys the swimmers they are today.

For most of our time at Shaplands the boys have had Robyn as an instructor and as I tell everyone 'we love Robyn she's the best'! My eldest now has Heidi and we have found her to be right up there with Robyn.

Any chance I get I recommend Shaplands Everton Park

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.

Fantastic guidance and reassurance

I just wanted to thankyou both for all your assistance in beginning to teach Lachlan to swim. I was a little unsure at first on his ability but with fantastic guidance and reassurance from you both he has come a long way in just a few short months. If it wasn't for us moving out to Jimboomba next month we would not have ended Lachy's lessons.

Thanks again and I would happily recommend Shapland Swim school to anyone.

Regards
Stacy W. 


Impressed by dedication

I have been impressed by the dedication of the teachers at Shapland Swim School. The small classes allow each child to get personal attention.
As we usually arrive a little before my grandson’s lesson, I have been able to observe the teachers with a class of babies. The atmosphere is calm and non- threatening. I have seen few children unhappy in the classes. Any tears have been easily turned to smiles with gentle encouragement.
I would highly recommend the school.
