You get the excellent Curro education

We are committed to providing learners with an excellent education. That is why our approach to teaching the national CAPS curriculum is based on project-based learning and self-discovery. This approach helps learners use their intellectual abilities to explore the learning material in a manner that makes it real to them somehow. This happens through research, experiments and assignments along with regular teaching methods.

 

As part of the Curro school group, learners enjoy preference when applying to us from any school in the group. Such preschools whose children can progress to us include HeronBridge College, Curro Midrand Halfway Gardens, Curro Midrand Sagewood, as well as Curro Fourways, Curro Rivonia, Curro Chartwell, Curro Bryanston, Curro Waterfall, Building Blocks Pre-primary within a 30-minute drive.

 

What happens in Grade 1 to Grade 7

Our foundation phase starts by helping Grade 1 learners get ready for the formal learning that starts in this phase. In this phase, they learn the basic foundations on which all further learning is based:

  • Language (read, spell, understand, speak, listen)
  • Mathematics (count, understand numbers, addition, subtraction and multiplication)
  • Life skills (physical education, real-life experiences, problem-solving, creativity)

In the intermediate phase, the work becomes less tangible or real, and more abstract. To do this, learners start with project-based learning, which means they do research, assignments, and experiments to explore the material outside just the textbook.

 

On-site therapist team

When a teacher identifies that a learner might need some additional attention from a specialist, they approach our school’s team. We then reach out to you to discuss assessments by one of our therapists. The therapist team, which includes speech, occupational and educational psychologists, then conduct an initial assessment follows by a personalised therapy plan until they feel the learner no longer needs it.

 

Activities your child can enjoy

One part of the excellent Curro education, is that academics are balanced with sports and cultural activities. Participation in activities promote team-awareness, collaboration, and self-confidence. Our focused variety of activities, such as choir, tennis and Esports, are tailored to the interests of learners in our area. Your child is sure to find something that will pique their interest.
