Facilities

School transport 

Our school transport service includes several buses on routes to MalmesburyKuils River, Brackenfell, and on the N1. This service is available at an additional cost as stipulated on our school fees letter (see Downloads). Contact us for information on how to make use of our transport services.  

 

Modern classrooms 

As a Curro School, we created a safe, modern environment where children can grow accustomed to learning and working with modern equipment and facilities. Our classrooms are designed to create a feeling of learning through educational decorations, but without causing undue distraction. As part of our commitment to an enhanced curriculum and competitive school fees, our classrooms for specialised subjects such as Engineering Graphics and Design or Technology are equipped with tools that allow learners to interact with the learned material through experiments or projects. 

 

Tablets in class 

High school learners may choose to use tablets in class rather than textbooks. Using tablets in class provides learners with 21st-century skills and allows teachers to provide learners with a wealth of information at the touch of a button as part of our enhanced curriculum. 

 

Excellent activity facilities 

Our wide variety of sports and cultural activities are hosted on state-of-the-art courts and fields, as well as carefully designed studios tailored to the activities’ requirements. As the first Curro School, our activity facilities include an aquatics centre with an indoor heated pool, a high-performance centre, world-class AstroTurf fields (with floodlights for evening practice) tennis/netball courts, rugby/soccer fields, a cricket pitch and cricket nets (indoor and outdoor). 

 

Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) 

We encourage parents to play a role in managing our school through a duly-elected parent advisory committee (PAC). As the name indicates, the PAC’s role is strictly an advisory one – they do not make and enforce decisions regarding school matters. The committee comprises of parents of current learners. Our PAC acts as liaison between the school and parents, raise funds through specific events throughout the year and host social and fellowship events. Through the PAC, parents can share their input in a structured manner to the benefit of the learners and school; as a community they can, therefore, be involved in the operational success of the school.
