Ipswich Swim School

UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT

We’d like to introduce ourselves as the new owners of the swim school. My name is Lucas Shapland and I will be overseeing the teaching/learning side of things and my wife Marie will be taking care of the administration. We have two young boys ourselves: Bernie (8) and Murphy (7)

For those interested in my background, I'm a 4th generation swimming teacher, my father Chris Shapland, Grandfather Bernie Shapland and great Great-grandfather Thomas Shapland were all swim teachers. I grew up with both my parents being swimming teachers when they operated the first Shapland swim school in Redcliffe, which was built and operated by my Grandparents prior and is still in operation right now. I have been teaching for over 20 years now and I have a lot of knowledge across the board when it comes to swimming on all levels from babies to advanced students.

Marie and I have been running the Shapland swim school Moorooka since 2012 and it is a very exciting time for our family to be taking on the school here at Ipswich. We are both very nervous but also very optimistic in continuing a family legacy for our children

From our family to yours, thank you, for choosing Shapland Swim Schools and being part in the prevention of childhood drowning. Learning to swim is a skill for life when learnt right.

Thank you for your time and we look forward
to seeing you all at swimming!

Yours sincerely
Lucas, Marie, Bernie and Murphy Shapland
