Primary School Overview

Primary School

Foundation Phase: Grade 1 to Grade 3

In the Foundation Phase the focus is on teaching the foundation skills, concepts and knowledge which provide a base for further learning. We offer a vibrant, invitational atmosphere where the learners enjoy school and acquire a love for learning that will sustain them throughout their school years. We use potential in each learner to reach optimum ability with less emphasis on competitiveness and more emphasis on individual achievement. Curro Kathu creates opportunities for personal growth in independence and responsibility so that the learners can take up the challenge of being personally responsible and accountable for their actions in the intermediate phase.

Intermediate/Senior Phase: Grade 4 to Grade 7

In the Intermediate Phase, the emphasis remains on establishing basic foundations, but learners are led into more abstract thoughts and independent work. Application of skills and concepts is also a focus aiming to prepare learners for the Senior Phase in the High School.
