At Curro Roodeplaat, we pride ourselves on providing learners with a well-rounded education that stretches beyond the classroom. That’s why we offer a wide variety of sports and cultural activities that range from fun and recreational, to competitive and specialised (such as Curro Create). Several of these activities are included in our school fees, while others may be offered at an additional cost.
At Curro Roodeplaat, we believe that sport plays an important role in promoting friendship, team-awareness and self-confidence in addition to physical well-being. Therefore, we offer a variety of sports activities ranging from swimming and lawn bowls to non-competitive activities as part of the school day. Sports activities are generally offered as part of our school fees, unless otherwise stated. Furthermore, while healthy competition is encouraged, the enjoyment of the game is not compromised.
Culture is one of the pillars on which our school’s identity was built. Our learners have the opportunity to participate in several cultural activities, regardless of their interests and abilities in sport or academics. Cultural activities are generally offered as part of our school fees, unless otherwise stated.
These activities introduce learners to valuable experiences and real-life 21st-century skills that few other platforms allow. Public speaking, for example, provides learners with self-confidence and presentation skills that will benefit them well into their professional lives.
Learners are invited to audition to be part of the gala evening – a highlight on our culture calendar. Furthermore, our school choirs have taken part in festivals and competitions which include the Tshwane Youth Arts Festival as well as kykNET’s Sing in Harmonie.
As a Curro School we offer two 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 creative talents. Learners can also participate in the annual Curro Create National Youth Theatre Festival, wherein 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.
