Curro Hazeldean has a primary school in Hazeldean in Pretoria. We provide the excellent Curro education to learners from Grade 1 to Grade 7. We limit our class sizes to make sure learners get personal attention, and they benefit from having isiZulu and Robotics as subjects. Our goal is to give our learners a head start in reaching their dreams, whatever these might be. We also have aftercare and school transport service, and we close earlier on Fridays so that you can enjoy your weekend.

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 helps learners use their intellectual abilities to explore the learning material in a manner that makes it real to them somehow. This happens through research, experiments and assignments along with regular teaching methods.

 

As part of the Curro school group, learners enjoy preference when applying to us from any school in the group. Nearby preschools within a 30-minute drive whose children can easily progress to us, include Woodhill College, Curro Academy The Blyde, and Curro Hazeldean.

 

What happens in Grade 1 to Grade 7

During the foundation phase, Grade 1 to 3 learners explore 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 Afrikaans, and learners have Afrikaans and isiZulu as additional language options.

 

How big are the classes

We control the number of learners per class to be no more than 22, so that our teachers have the time and space to give personal attention to each learner, in exactly the places that they need. This is just one of the ways that we create an environment where your child will enjoy what they learn and love coming to school.

 

Our values

Our school is built on a balance of values that allow learners to learn and grow into the best versions of themselves. We believe that a good education is the basis on which learners can grow to become strong leaders and responsible citizens who will make a positive change in their communities.

Our value system is based on four pillars:

  • Child-friendliness
  • Positive discipline
  • Christian values (ethics and morals)
  • Creative thinking

 

H2: 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. Our focused variety of activities, such as art, equestrian, and swimming, are tailored to the interests of learners in our area. Your child is sure to find something that will pique their interest.
