Modern classrooms

As a Curro School, we have created a safe, modern environment where children can grow accustomed to learning and working with modern equipment and facilities. Our classrooms are designed to create a feeling of learning through educational decorations, but without causing undue distraction. Classrooms for specialised subjects, such as Computer Applications Technology (CAT), Engineering Graphics and Design (EGD) and Visual Arts, are equipped with the latest technology and tools that provide learners with 21st-century skills and allow them to interact with the learned material through experiments or projects.

We use tablets in class

We aim to embrace 21st-century skills at our Curro School by giving learners the option to use tablets in class. Using tablets in class allows teachers to provide learners with a wealth of information at the touch of a button, and prepares them for the workplace of the future

 

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 or enforce decisions regarding school matters. The committee comprises parents of current children.

At Curro Mount Richmore, our PAC acts as liaison between the school and parents, raises funds through specific events throughout the year, and hosts 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.

 

Activity facilities

Our wide variety of activities and events is hosted on state-of-the-art courts and fields to promote the development of 21st-century skills.

  • Tennis/netball courts
  • An eight-lane swimming pool (1,8 m deep, 25 m long)
  • Two large sports fields for rugby, cricket, hockey, cross-country, etc.
  • Two changing rooms
  • Cricket nets 
  • Indoor hockey/soccer facility

Curro Mount Richmore also has a modern culture studio near the school hall, where music and drama are taught. Facilities include prop storage rooms, a kitchen, changing rooms, classrooms and music tuition rooms. 

 

Therapists

Our high-school learners may arrange sessions with an in-house psychologist at no additional cost.
