You get the excellent Curro education

We are committed to providing learners with an excellent education. That is why our approach to teaching the national CAPS curriculum is based on project-based learning and self-discovery. This approach allows our primary school learners to explore the learning material beyond just the textbook through research, experiments and assignments. Regular assessments and tests still take place, but it’s important to us that learners can use their intellectual abilities to make the material real to them in some way.

Our learners also use laptops in class to view e-books and for communication via MS Teams. This, in addition to project-based learning, better prepares them with knowledge and skills that will stretch beyond the classroom.

 

What happens in Grade R to Grade 7

Our foundation phase starts by helping Grade R learners get ready for the formal learning that starts in Grade 1. In this phase, they learn the basic foundations on which all further learning is based:

  • Language (read, spell, understand, speak, listen)
  • Mathematics (count, understand numbers, addition, subtraction and multiplication)
  • Life skills (physical education, real-life experiences, problem-solving, creativity)

In the intermediate phase, the work becomes less tangible or real, and more abstract. To do this, learners start with project-based learning, which means they do research, assignments, and experiments to explore the material outside just the textbook.

Teaching takes place in English, and learners can choose Afrikaans and isiZulu as additional language options. They also have Robotics as a subject.

 

More than academics

As part of our commitment to the great Curro education, we have value-added programmes at no additional cost that help learners excel! Academic enrichment lessons include English, Mathematics, and a first additional language help to provide a solid understanding and foundation for further learning, and our learners write the IEB international benchmarking tests in Grade 6.

 

Activities your child can enjoy

One part of the excellent Curro education, is that academics are balanced with sports and cultural activities. Participation in activities promote team-awareness, collaboration, and self-confidence. Activities such as art and choir help learners develop the skills to gather their thoughts and express themselves in creative ways. Our wide variety of activities, such as eisteddfod and robotics club, are tailored to the interests of learners in our area. Your child is sure to find something that will pique their interest.
