Activities

Sports activities 

As a Curro School, 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 that include specialised activities such as golf and Curro Tennis. While healthy competition is encouraged, the enjoyment of the game is not compromised. 

 

Cultural activities 

Culture is one of the pillars on which our school’s identity was built. Our learners have the opportunity to participate in several cultural activities, regardless of their interests and abilities in sport or academics. 

Our drama department holds a big, professional production every two years while our choirs participate in various music competitions and eisteddfods every year, e.g. the Stellenbosch Eisteddfod, the Tygerberg International Eisteddfod as well as the Johann Vos piano competition and the Hubert van der Spuy music competition for primary school learners. We have also had learners playing at the Hugo Lambrechts Concerto Festival.  

Curro Durbanville also has several clubs and societies that allow learners with similar interests to build relationships and collaborate in various projects. 

 

Curro Create 

We 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 can also 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. 

 

Soft-skills development programme 

We aim to educate our high school learners on skills that are highly sought after in the workplace and in the world beyond their classroom. Therefore, we offer a soft skills development programme to help with skills such as communication, leadership, work ethic, and more. We believe that soft skills development will equip our learners with vital characteristics for a successful life and will help them differentiate themselves from others in the workplace one day. 

 

MySchool PAC initiative
