At Curro Roodeplaat, we believe that sport plays in important role in promoting friendship, team-awareness and self-confidence in addition to physical well-being. Therefore, we offer a variety of sports activities that include specialised activities such as golf and equestrian. 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 aptitude in subjects such as Mathematics.

Culture is one of the foundational pillars of developing a well-balanced learner and plays a great role in broadening learners’ reference frameworks. Our learners have the opportunity to participate in several 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. Public speaking, for example, provides learners with self-confidence and presentation skills that will benefit them well into their professional lives.
We have an annual culture week during the third term for Grade 1 to Grade 7 learners. Learners are invited to audition to be part of the gala evening – a highlight on our culture calendar.
Our school choirs have taken part in festivals and competitions which include the Tshwane Youth Arts Festival as well as kykNET’s Sing in Harmonie.

We also offer a 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.
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.
