Modern classrooms and playgrounds
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 Robotics, Natural Sciences and Technology, 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 age-appropriate playgrounds boast jungle gyms, shaded areas and plenty of climbing and play equipment.
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 them for the workplace of the future.
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
Learner-support centre (foundation phase)
At our school, we understand that some learners may require extra help in order to succeed. Therefore, our learner-support centre offers support to foundation-phase learners in the form of extra classes and with the help of on-site therapists (remedial, occupational, speech). Although support sessions take place on site, they do carry an additional cost.
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.
