At Curro Nelspruit, a Curro School, learners have a wide variety of activities from which to choose. From school sports and Curro Create programmes, to community outreach initiatives, our learners can gain 21st-century skills in nearly any field they choose.
We believe that participation in school sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting health, team-awareness, discipline and self-confidence, in addition to physical and social well-being. As our school has a strong school sports performance record, we offer a wide variety of activities, including specialised activities such as mountain biking and target shooting. Learners also take part in various competitions and productions, such as the ATKV-Tienertoneel, and our marimba and drumming band literally makes the feet tap with their quirky numbers.

As a Curro School, we offer Curro Create programmes aimed at helping learners develop their creative talents to their full potential. Curro Arts Superhero (CAS) is an internal creative mentorship platform with a grading element, where learners are encouraged to discover, develop and display their inherent 21st-century skills and creative talents. Learners can also participate in the annual Curro Create National Youth Theatre Festival, for which schools enter a one-act play in any genre and official language. The winning plays are chosen through a series of adjudications by world-class theatre-makers, who closely mentor learners throughout the process.
Our learners further benefit from value-added offerings, which are included in the school fees. These include a business and entrepreneurship programme to promote the development of 21st-century skills, various olympiads, subject-choice assessments and career-guidance counselling, as well as remote learning for learners in self-isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Curro Nelspruit community outreach
At Curro Nelspruit, we believe that community outreach programmes are important not only to benefit the community, but also to develop appreciation and empathy in our learners. Therefore, at our Curro School, we host various community outreach programmes during the year and learners are actively involved in all areas of the projects.
For information on upcoming outreach programmes, please contact us.
