Curro Secunda Primary School

Academics

Curro Secunda primary school is an independent Curro School situated in Secunda, Mpumalanga, that provides high-quality education to learners from Grade R to Grade 7, with a focus on developing 21st-century skills. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum (which includes the use of tablets in class) empower learners with skills and knowledge to grow into self-confident individuals.

 

Foundation phase: Grade R to Grade 3

With dedicated teachers and small class sizes, our foundation phase starts by providing the emotional and intellectual foundation required to handle the formal learning that starts in Grade 1. Through our enhanced curriculum, we then gradually develop learners’ 21st-century skills and knowledge in basic areas such as language (comprehension, speaking and listening), mathematics (counting and understanding numbers), and creative problem-solving, in an environment to which they enjoy coming. Furthermore, as a Curro School, Robotics and chess form part of the curriculum, and we create opportunities for personal growth so that learners can become personally responsible and accountable for their actions in the intermediate phase.

 

Intermediate phase: Grade 4 to Grade 7

In these grades, learners are taught to work with the learned material in an abstract manner. The nature of the content gradually builds from being tangible and real to more intellectual and abstract. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum provide learners with an inherent dedication to hard work and excellence, as well as 21st-century skills through specialised subjects such as Natural Sciences and Technology (including Robotics).

 

We use tablets in class

As a Curro School, learners from this phase onwards may use tablets in class rather than textbooks. By exposing learners to the daily use of technology, they are better prepared for the challenges of tertiary studies, as well as the ever-changing workplace of the future.

See which subjects we offer on our fact sheet (see Downloads).

 

Extra classes

At Curro Secunda, we believe in helping all learners reach their full potential. Therefore, we offer extra classes on Wednesdays to assist learners who may need extra academic support.
