Facilities

Aftercare

Our aftercare service is available for primary school learners at an additional cost, as stipulated on our fees letter (see Downloads). Learners are accommodated in safe classrooms and playgrounds, and the fees include a freshly prepared meal for lunch as well as limited homework support.

 

Tablets in class

As a Curro School, learners from Grade 6 onward use tablets in class (or other e-learning devices) rather than textbooks. Using tablets in class allows teachers to provide learners with a wealth of information at the touch of a button and gives them a head start in the workplace of the future. This is just one of the ways in which our enhanced curriculum benefits learners in the increasingly digital-reliant world we live in.

 

School transport

At Curro Hermanus, our transport service is available to learners travelling to and from our school, at an additional cost as stipulated on our fees letter. Our transport service travels to and from Stanford, Caledon, Hermanus CBD, Pringle Bay, and Gansbaai. Please contact us for more information on how to make use of our transport service or download our transport service information.

 

Parent Advisory Committee

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 children. At Curro Hermanus 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.

 

Music centre

Curro Hermanus has a creative and functional music centre with a focus on developing our learners’ love of music, their skills in and their passion for the subject. The music centre has more than 100 learners enrolled, with even more learners interested.

 

Modern classrooms

At Curro Hermanus we have created a safe, modern environment where children can grow accustomed to learning and working with modern equipment and facilities. Classrooms for specialised subjects such as Robotics and IT are equipped with 21st-century learning tools that allow learners to interact with the learned material through experiments or projects. Our well-equipped and spacious art class allows learners to be taught using a variety of instruments and techniques to develop their skills.

 

Sports facilities

Our wide variety of sports activities are hosted on state-of-the-art courts and fields. Our sports facilities include an indoor aquatics centre, AstroTurf, tennis/netball courts, rugby/soccer fields, and a 300m athletics track.
