At Curro Helderwyk, we believe that sport plays an important role in promoting friendship, team-awareness and self-confidence in addition to physical well-being. Therefore, we offer a variety of sports activities. While healthy competition is encouraged, the enjoyment of the game is not compromised.
Activities such as chess further help to stimulate thinking patterns such as logical analysis and problem-solving, which help to improve skills and aptitude for subjects such as Mathematics.

Culture is one of the foundational pillars of developing a well-balanced learner and plays a fundamental role in building a sustainable and vibrant community. Our learners have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of cultural activities, regardless of their interests and abilities in sport or academics.
These activities introduce learners to valuable experiences and real-life skills that few other platforms allow. Participation in public speaking, for example, provides learners with self-confidence and presentation skills that will benefit them well into their professional lives.
With a strong history of achievement in eisteddfods as well as carefully selected teachers and coaches, we go to great lengths to ensure that each learner is stimulated in their areas of interests.

We also offer two Curro Create programmes aimed at helping learners develop their creative talents to their full potential. Curro Arts Superhero (CAS) is an internal creative mentorship platform with a grading element, where learners are encouraged to discover, develop and display their inherent creative talents.
Learners have the opportunity to participate in the annual Curro Create National Youth Theatre Festival, wherein schools enter a one-act play in any genre and official language. The winning plays are chosen through a series of adjudications by world-class theatre-makers, who closely mentor learners throughout the process.
Extramural activities are offered by external tutors or coaches. They are offered at an additional cost and generally take place on the school’s premises. Some extramural activities are aimed at improving or supporting academic learning or mental and physical development, while others are purely recreational.
