Curro Klerksdorp Primary School
Curro Klerksdorp primary school is an independent Curro School in Flamwood, Klerksdorp, that provides high-quality education to learners from Grade R to Grade 7, with boarding school facilities from Grade 6. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to grow into self-confident individuals. With specialised subjects, dedicated teachers and the use of tablets in class, we are the school of choice. Grade R learners are also accommodated at the Castle. However, as their daily activities and programmes are built into the foundation phase of primary school, Grade R is included here.
Foundation phase: Grade R to Grade 3
With dedicated teachers and small class sizes, our foundation phase starts by providing the emotional and intellectual foundation required to handle the formal learning that starts in Grade 1. We then gradually develop learners’ skills and knowledge in basic areas such as language (comprehension, speaking and listening), mathematics (counting and understanding numbers), and creative problem-solving in an environment in which they enjoy being. Through our enhanced curriculum, learners are introduced to project-based learning and gain 21st-century skills through subjects such as Robotics through Duplo Lego. As a Curro School, teaching takes place in English, but Afrikaans and Setswana are offered as additional language options.
Intermediate phase: Grade 4 to Grade 7
In these grades, learners are taught to work with the learned material in an abstract manner. The nature of the content gradually builds from being tangible and real to more intellectual and abstract. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum provide learners with an inherent dedication to hard work and excellence, as well as 21st-century skills through specialised subjects such as Social Sciences and Natural Sciences. Teaching takes place in English, but Afrikaans and Setswana are offered as additional language options.
We use tablets in class
As a Curro School, learners from this phase onwards may use tablets in class rather than textbooks and, in addition, we use technology in various other ways, such as interactive whiteboards. Through being exposed to the daily use of technology, learners at Curro Klerksdorp are better prepared for the challenges of tertiary studies as well as the ever-changing workplace of the future.
