What do we offer?
At Curro Krugersdorp we balance academic excellence with sports and cultural well-being, thereby ensuring that learners develop into well-rounded individuals. Our small class sizes and enriched curriculum provide learners with 21st-century skills to prepare them for the workplace of the future. To that end, our classrooms and facilities are fitted with state-of-the-art tools and learners may choose to use e-learning devices in the classrooms, rather than textbooks, from Grade 4 onwards. Our curriculum and unique approach to teaching focuses on fostering a creative mind, an eagerness to achieve excellence and an inherent dedication to hard work.
Our dedicated teachers give learners personal attention in the classroom, which helps to ensure that they achieve to the best of their abilities. Teaching takes place in Afrikaans or English in the primary school. From Grade 8 Afrikaans Home Language is offered as subject while and all other subjects are in English in preparation for the requirements of university. Afrikaans learners receive the necessary support to make this transition as smooth as possible. In the foundation phase, learners can benefit from having isiZulu as conversational language through the Abuti Syllabus.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in activities plays an important role in promoting health, team-awareness, discipline and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. Therefore, we offer a wide variety of competitive sports activities (D2 League) such as rugby and netball. The Curro cup competitions provide an additional competitive opportunity to our learners. Besides tours and camps, these activities are included in the school fees.
Cultural activities at our school are a priority. Our acclaimed culture department, with experienced and dedicated teachers, have seen our learners take part in many Afrikaans and English debating, public speaking and coral verse competitions. Our primary school has become known for their African drumming band, which is combined with the junior and senior a cappella choirs. We also offer Curro Create programmes, aimed at helping learners discover their inherent talents and broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework. These activities are generally included in the school fees.
How do we use technology in the classroom?
At Curro Krugersdorp we embrace 21st-century learning by using e-learning devices in the classroom from the intermediate phase onwards. Our blended approach allows our leaners to use textbooks and software to view and study from an e-book. This approach allows them to collaborate easily and securely with teachers and peers.
We are Robotics inclusive and primary school learners participate in WRO
Primary school learners further benefit from Robotics and even participate in WRO (World Robot Olympiad) events and competitions – and they do exceptionally well.
