Curro Academy Savanna City
Curro Academy Savanna City is an independent school in De Deur, Vereeniging that provides high-quality education for learners from Grade R to Grade 10 with higher grades phasing in annually. Our school’s small class sizes and enhanced curriculum provide learners with skills and knowledge to grow into self-confident individuals capable of reaching their personal, educational and eventual workplace goals. Our dedicated teachers and well-rounded approach prepare learners for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations at the end of Grade 12.
What do we offer?
At Curro Academy Savanna City, we offer high-quality education at affordable school fees, along with a variety of activities. Our foundation phase provides the important, strong basis on which further learning is built, through the use of specialised programmes such as Duplo Lego and the NumberSense programme. In later phases, our project-based learning approach allow learners to take ownership of their own studies and learn through engaging, interactive teaching methods.
Our small class sizes allow our learners to receive personal attention in the classroom, which helps to ensure that they reach their full potential. We also offer value-added programmes as part of the school fees, that include character-building programmes, career guidance and entrepreneurship skills.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in school sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting health, team-awareness, discipline and self-confidence. Many of our activities are designed to help learners discover new talents, or to broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework. These activities are generally included in the school fees.
Activities such as chess also help to develop critical thinking patterns used in subjects such as Mathematics and Science. These thinking patterns also help to develop logical reasoning and analytical skills that have far-reaching benefits in tertiary studies and the workplace.
How do we make learning fun in the classroom?
Children learn best in a fun, supportive environment where they form an active part of the learning process. This environment is built by several factors, including the classroom’s appearance, the teacher’s enthusiasm, and the teaching method (how the work is presented).
Our classrooms are designed to be visually pleasing without causing undue distraction, while our dedicated teachers explain or present the work with enthusiasm and passion. However, the most engaging principle is project-based learning, which guides learners to learn the material through their own research and discovery. Rather than simply reading information from a textbook, the information is learned by interacting with the material through assignments, research, discussions, or creative projects.
