Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
At Curro Helderwyk, our Grade 8 and Grade 9 learners are guided to adjust to a greater workload of higher intensity. Our teaching is aimed at developing innovative and critical thinking, while a problem-solving approach is used in subjects such as Mathematics. Our affordable, enhanced curriculum places a great emphasis on problem-solving and individual thinking, while 21st-century learning is implemented in subjects such as Technology. Our curriculum even covers aspects of nanotechnology and Leonard da Vinci’s inventions in certain subjects.
Learners receive comprehensive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9 and we also have a support committee to assist learners who may struggle emotionally or academically.
FET phase: Grade 10 to Grade 12
The FET phase prepares learners for the IEB examinations written at the end of Grade 12. However, emphasis is placed on a greater world-readiness rather than a purely examination-driven approach. Our learners are taught to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives to be valued members of the community. We also provide them with an inherent dedication to hard work and achievement. Some of our specialised subjects include Computer Applications Technology and Engineering Graphics and Design (EGD).
We also have a support committee to assist learners who may struggle emotionally or academically.
