Facilities

Modern classrooms

As a Curro School, we have created a safe, modern environment in which 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 decor, but without causing undue distraction. Classrooms for specialised subjects, such as 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.

 

We use tablets in class

As part of our enhanced curriculum, we aim to embrace 21st-century skills by incorporating the use of tablets in class from the intermediate phase onwards. Using tablets in class allows teachers to provide learners with a wealth of information at the touch of a button and prepares learners for the workplace of the future.

 

Activity facilities

Our wide variety of activities and events, many of which are included in the school fees, is hosted on state-of-the-art courts and fields to promote the development of 21st-century skills.

Our activity facilities include:

  • Multi-purpose sports field
  • Swimming pool
  • Tennis/netball courts
  • Cricket nets
  • Music room

 

Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)

At Curro Westbrook, we encourage parents to play a role in managing our school through a duly elected parent advisory committee (PAC). As the name indicates, the PAC’s role is strictly an advisory one – they do not make and enforce decisions regarding school matters the enhanced curriculum or school fees. The committee comprises parents of current learners. Our PAC acts as liaison between the school and parents, raises funds through specific events throughout the year, and hosts social and fellowship events. Through the PAC, parents can share their input in a structured manner, to the benefit of the learners and school. As a school community, they can, therefore, be involved in the operational success of the school.

Please contact us if you would like to get involved in our Parent Advisory Committee.
