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 target shooting and mountain biking.
We have a culture period and learners take part in various productions
Our intermediate-phase learners have a culture period every Friday, with specialised activities such as film study, photography, recycling and more, and learners also take part in various competitions and productions such as the ATKV-Tjokkertoneel.
See which activities we offer on our fact sheet (see Downloads).
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.
Extramural activities are offered by external tutors or coaches. They are offered at an additional cost and generally take place on the school’s premises. Some extramural activities are aimed at improving or supporting academic learning or mental and physical development, while others are purely recreational.
We have value added programmes (foundation phase)
In addition to extramural activities, we also offer value-added programmes for foundation-phase learners, which are included in the school fees. These include Tumbling Tigerz, tennis, movement, extra Mathematics and phonics lessons, music, Learn 2 Swim and computer studies to promote 21st-century skills.
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.
