Facilities

Modern classrooms

As a Curro School we created a safe, modern environment where children can grow accustomed to learning and working with modern equipment and facilities. Our classrooms are designed to create a feeling of learning through educational decorations, but without causing undue distraction. Classrooms for specialised subjects such as Computer Applications Technology (CAT), Visual Arts and Engineering Graphics and Design (EGD) are equipped with the latest technology and tools that provide learners with 21st-century skills and allow them to interact with the learned material through experiments or projects. Our specialised classrooms allow for 3D printing, laser cutting and virtual reality (VR), which form part of the curriculum.

 

We use tablets in class

We aim to embrace 21st-century skills at our Curro School by incorporating the use of tablets in class. Using tablets in class allows teachers to provide learners with a wealth of information at the touch of a button and prepares them for the workplace of the future.
