Curro Midrand Halfway Gardens is a primary school in Halfway Gardens in Midrand. We provide the excellent Curro education to learners from Grade R to Grade 7. Teaching takes place in English and we limit our class sizes to make sure learners get personal attention. We also have optional aftercare and transport services, as well as Robotics and IT as subjects. Our goal is to give our learners a head start in reaching their dreams, whatever these might be.
We are closely affiliated with nearby Curro Midrand San Ridge and Curro Midrand Sagewood. Learners from us or any of these two schools automatically progress to one another, unless you choose another school in the group.
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 learn to make the material real to themselves in some way.
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:
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 languages. They also have Robotics as a subject throughout school.
How big are the classes?
We control the number of learners per class to be no more than 25, 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.
As part of the Curro school group, preschool children enjoy preference when applying to us from any preschool in the group. Nearby preschools whose children can progress or transfer to us include Curro Waterfall and Curro Rivonia, with The King’s School Linbro Park, Magic Beings, Curro Thatchfield, Curro Fourways and Curro Bryanston, slightly further away.
More than academics
We believe in providing your child with more than just pure academics. We have a few programmes that enhance our academics, with a few others that teach skills that will benefit them beyond the classrooms.
Here are a few of the value-added programmes from which your child can benefit?
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. As a primary school in Halfway Gardens, our focused variety of activities, such as public speaking and hockey, are tailored to the interests of learners in our area. Your child is sure to find something that will pique their interest.
