What do we offer?
At Curro Bloemfontein, we balance academic excellence with sports- and cultural activities that build a sense of community among learners. While healthy competition is encouraged, we emphasise the enjoyment and teambuilding aspects of these activities, thereby ensuring that learners develop into well-rounded individuals.
By offering excellent teaching at affordable fees, our learners benefit from teachers that have been at the school for many years, as well as our specialised offerings such as Robotics and Engineering Graphics and Design. We also offer Sesotho as a First Additional Language option.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting community, friendship, team-awareness and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. Many of our activities are designed to help learners develop interests and talents that might otherwise have been undiscovered. Such activities include art classes, public speaking, talent shows and writing for a school newspaper.
How do we use technology in the classroom?
We embrace 21st-century learning by using tablets in the classroom. When you enrol your child, the school fees include technology provision and support services. However, you would still need to purchase the accompanying tablet and e-books. Our new drone programme will further introduce learners to the basic coding and programming principles, as well as more advanced skills such as web-development, data analysis and scientific computing.
