Aftercare and holiday care
Our aftercare service is available at an additional cost and is managed by Sherpa Kids.
Sherpa Kids brings our parent community an internationally benchmarked, structured and professional before-school, after-school and holiday-care programme that is fresh, exciting and engaging. The focus is to provide a loving, caring, home-away-from-home environment for your children where there will be loads of learning, fun and personal development. Sherpa Kids provides a safe and secure environment for the quality care of Castle and primary school learners through a structured well-balanced programme. This is achieved by thinking ahead, anticipating what children might like to do to keep them safe and happy; and by having planned activities and supervised free play.

As a Curro School, we created a safe, modern environment where children can grow accustomed to learning and working with modern equipment and facilities – made possible by our competitive school fees. Our classrooms are designed to create a feeling of learning through educational decorations, but without causing undue distraction. As a Curro School, classrooms and laboratories for enhanced curriculum subjects are equipped with the latest technology and tools that provide learners with 21st-century skills.
Tablets in class
Learners from the intermediate phase onwards may choose to use tablets in class (e-learning devices) rather than textbooks – or a combination thereof, if they choose. Furthermore, assignments and homework are often submitted electronically via the Microsoft Schools Suite, which allows learners to easily (and safely) collaborate with teachers and classmates. This specialised approach is made possible by our enhanced curriculum and competitive school fees. Furthermore, by exposing learners to the daily use of technology through tablets in class, they are better prepared for the challenges of tertiary studies as well as the ever-changing workplace of the future.
Excellent activity facilities
Our wide variety of sports and cultural activities are hosted on state-of-the-art courts and fields, as well as carefully designed studios tailored to the activities’ requirements – all part of our commitment to providing learners with 21st-century skills. Our activity facilities include an aquatics centre and a five-a-side soccer field.
Parent Teacher Association
We encourage parents to play a role in managing our school through a duly-elected parent teacher association (PTA). As the name indicates, the PTA’s role is strictly an advisory one – they do not make and enforce decisions regarding school matters. The committee comprises of parents of current children. Our PTA acts as liaison between the school and parents, raise funds through specific events throughout the year and host social and fellowship events. Through the PTA, 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.
Our tuck shop offers a variety of drinks, snacks and freshly made meals for our learners and staff. Our tuck shop is cashless, and parents have control over their children’s spending via an app that allows them to upload money to a card. Learners use these cards to make purchases at the tuck shop
