Vision:

At Curro Bloemfontein Primary School we strive to develop our learners to be holistically independent, based on Christian values.

Mission:

  • Developing SELF (-respect, -confidence, -esteem)
  • Teach them perseverance and diligence
  • To lead them to discover and utilise their own full potential as an individual
  • To create a platform to assist learners to become a well balanced individual on academic and physical level
  • To expose learners and guide them in the diversity of our country and their role in their community
  • To keep learners up to date with technological advances
  • To develop “the leader” in every child.

Educators apply 21st Century teaching and learning skills and, with the guidance of the Curro Curriculum Department, prepare our young learners for their future. The curriculum teaches them to work in groups (collaboration) and still be an individual with special gifts and talents and to become global citizens with an understanding for diversity and a compassion for life and the heart to protect our nature.
