Can I just take this opportunity to say thanks for running such a great Swim School! Lara as you would know John, is a rather shy child and I was getting so tired of swimming lessons where we would have so many different instructors each week, and she wouldn’t even want to get in the water. Thanks for being such a great teacher!
After trying three other Swim schools for my daughter, we are so happy to find a swim school where you have the same instructor every week, a very professionally run business. Thank goodness for John, he has such an amazing rapport with the children. Thank you John & Michele.

We want to thank you for all the work you have done teaching both my children to swim. They are both confident in the water and display good technique. Both have enjoyed going to swimming lessons with you and we think they have gained skills in more than just swimming while doing the lessons. We love going to swimming and enjoy your footy banter and John-erisms.

John trained all three of our children in his friendly home pool. Well organised and highly attentive to needs of our kids. With small classes, John was able to give extra attention to our little ones, which gave them a huge advantage when starting school. When they were just babies he allowed us to be part of the lesson in his heated pool and the kids loved swimming. Attentiveness to their technique created excellent habit which created confident swimmers.

My children have been coming to swimming lessons with John since about 5 months of age. They look forward to coming every week. John is always encouraging while at the same time firm, teaching the boys respect for pool safety and the safety of others in the pool thanks John!

I am thrilled with the progress both my children have made in such a short time with John. My husband was amazed at the increased confidence and skill in just three weeks. Both kids have responded very well to John and I’d recommend this school to anyone with kids – and I have. I’m so please I listened to two of my friends who also recommended John to me.

On behalf of all the girls (and boys) in our class we want to say a massive thank you for all your help with our little ones swimming. You are so patient and kind and you’re always ready with a good joke!

Our son first started attending Swimwell lesson’s when he was five years old. Until then he had been very apprehensive of water. The continuity of only ever having John as an instructor, the small sized groups and the calmness of John and Michele’s home pool…plus not to mention John’s good humour…all created a safe environment that wasn’t overwhelming for our son. He now loves swimming and eagerly looks forward to his weekly lessons. It has totally been worth our 40km round trip commute! We will continue to highly recommend Swimwell Swim School.
John, do you remember how scared Simon was when he first started coming to you? He didn’t even like putting his head under the shower. He is definitely the type of kid to do things in his own time (i.e. he still won’t get on a bike). The trust you quickly established with him made all the difference. We are really appreciative. I could’ve gone on about how organised it all is, how reasonable priced etc. but I’m sure you’ll get other testimonial about that. So thank you both!!! You don’t offer a bicycle riding school do you??? He tells me his is going to learn on his 7th birthday. The kid can ski so I’m not sure why he isn’t into bike riding!! Maybe because snow is softer than bitumen?
