Culture is one of the foundational pillars of developing a well-balanced learner. At Curro Roodeplaat, learners are offered the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of cultural activities, from choir to drama. In this way, learners can develop a love for art, regardless of their abilities in sport or academics.  

Eisteddfods 

Curro Roodeplaat primary school takes part in two eisteddfods a year where our talented learners get a chance to show off their skills. We encourage learners to take part from Grade 1.  

  • Pretoria Eisteddfod: Promotes a formal opportunity for learners to participate in a competitive arena in a variety of items. The Pretoria Eisteddfod runs from the beginning of the year until the end of the second term. 
  • Kungwini EisteddfodThe organisers of the Kungwini Eisteddfod aim to promote the performing and visual arts by organising arts festivals and/or eisteddfods and to offer young artists the opportunity of performing in public. The eisteddfod runs from August to October.
