Help Dexter Heffernan to continue his therapeutic activities.

This is Dexter. He is six years old. Dexter has Cerebral Palsy caused by brain damage. He has cortival vision impairment, has been through many surgeries for his legs due to the CP, and is a Liver Cancer Survivor.

Dexter's funding is running out and the NDIS is not ready for him yet, meaning there will be a gap in funding for Dexter to continue his therapeutic activities to help with his physical development.

Our instructor, Ron Scott, will be bleaching and colouring his long locks of hair all colours of the rainbow to help raise funds for Dexter (Approx. $2000 gets Dexter one fortnightly hour of physiotherapy sessions for a year.) You can donate through the link below or, if you are at Shellharbour Swim Academy, we have a donation tin at the cafe.

Shellharbour's swimming school of choice.

Welcome to Shellharbour Swim Academy, the swimming school dedicated to helping all age groups learn and perfect how to swim. We teach everyone in need from our local community across Albion Park, Oak Flats, Warilla, Shellharbour, Windang and Port Kembla, to improve their swimming techniques and abilities.

Your Babies, Our Specialty

Our swimming school specialises in baby & toddler programs where each child will be continually assessed, enabling everyone to progress at their own speed. Not only do our swimming classes present your babies and toddlers with an exciting challenge, it will boost their confidence, keep them in good health and potentially save their lives. At Shellharbour Swim Academy, we teach your children how to save themselves in water, with self-rescue training, to prevent accidental death by drowning.
