Primary School


Dear Parents and Guardians

“The freedom to make mistakes provides the best environment for creativity. Education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't.”

- Anatole Franc

Curro Aurora Primary is a happy and inclusive school and we welcome learners and families from a wide diversity of backgrounds. We aim to maximise our learner’s achievement by removing barriers to learning through a varied, inclusive curriculum delivered in a safe, stimulating environment. The success of this approach can be seen not just in the fantastic academic results our learners achieve, but also in the confidence and enthusiasm for learning our well-rounded children exude. The learning experiences for our learners are enhanced by opportunities to work with specialists, professionals as well as educational visits, which give them a wide understanding of the world around them.  We foster an atmosphere of mutual respect, tolerance and high regard for all members of society and for one another. Our learners have enthusiasm and a thirst for learning and they learn to be confident, motivated and independent. We are ambitious for our learners and work closely with our parents, guardians and families to support their leaning and development. We have an excellent staff team who are enthusiastic and committed to supporting every learner to achieve the highest possible standards as well as exploring their interests and talents to the full.

We all know Martin Luther King Jr. was very influential in his time, and even more so today. He valued education, and realised that without it what he spoke was of no value to those who chose to remain ignorant of change. Below is a valuable quote. It helps you to appreciate the cost and effort put forth by parents, and those who paved the way for an easier education available to so many today.

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.

Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education.”

-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
