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.

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.
Amazing review from Mandy
I would like to put in writing my appreciation for administrative and swim instructor team at Warner Shapland.
Whether by phone, email or in-person, administrative staff are consistently 100% courteous, professional and knowledgeable.
Likewise, I have found Warner Shapland swimming instruction to be 100% professional and second to none. Sebastian's progress in learning to swim has been steadfast.
Staff have an excellent manner with children. Sebastian's face lights up when he sees his swim instructor, Robyn. At times he has had not had his usual teacher nonetheless has quickly adjusted, thanks to the teachers' welcoming manner.
I always recommend your swim school to anyone looking to find a swim school for their child.
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)
Persistence pays off
Our son started swimming aged 2, and he was the worst kid in class when it cam to behaviour, he would run and jump in, splash everyone and generally run amok. I considered withdrawing him but as he was such a daredevil around water we persisted, and so did his lovely teacher Robin. He slowly learnt to wait his turn and to listen. He is now just turned five and still going to classes, and he has graduated to kickboards and goggles and swims like a fish at home. Also every class paid for itself the day he fell in the pool when he was three and he automatically swam to the side. (I was with him at the time!)
Best time at Shaplands
Trust me...my daughter actually had the best time at Shaplands and picked up everything much more quicker even when she was there for just couple of terms.....i am planning to get her back there again! Amazing teachers.
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.
Children have flourished
My son (4) and daughter (3) have flourished at Shapland. They are safe around and in the water plus are now learning 'big arm' swimming. The teachers are excellent, clear in communication and encouraging and the environment is inviting with a viewing room for parents and mineral pool for the health of our kids. I recommend them to all of my friends and the results speak for themselves.
Benefits of the smaller class
I enrolled my son at Shapland Swim School after receiving glowing recommendations from friends. I had become discouraged with the lessons he was receiving elsewhere and I am so pleased that I made the change. My son has reaped the benefits of the smaller class led by his lovely teacher, Heidi, and he looks forward to attending each week. The swimming lessons are personalized so that each child is taught skills relevant to their individual abilities. The teachers know each of the children and are committed to their progress. The pool and change areas are clean and well maintained and there are only two classes in the pool at one time which lessens the opportunity for distractions during lessons. I recommend Shapland’s to friends who are looking for a good swim school for their child.Michelle client Everton Park)
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.
