You get an excellent 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 allows our primary school learners to explore the learning material beyond just the textbook through research, experiments and assignments. Regular assessments and tests still take place, but it’s important to us that learners can use their intellectual abilities to make the material real to them in some way.

As part of the Curro school group, we can tap into a wide network of teachers and support that can ultimately give your child an excellent education that stretches beyond the classroom.

 

What happens in Grade R to Grade 7

Our foundation phase starts by helping Grade R learners adapt to the more formal learning that starts in Grade 1. In this phase, they learn the basic foundations on which all further learning is based – and even have chess as part of the programme:

  • 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.

Teaching takes place in English, and learners can choose Afrikaans and isiZulu as additional language options. They also have Robotics as a subject throughout primary school.

 

As part of the Curro school group, learners enjoy preference when applying to us from any school in the group. Should you move to the area, we will help you through the transfer process from start to finish. Should you want your child to join our school but live far away, they can find a warm, caring home away from home in our boarding school. Read on for more!

 

Activities your child can enjoy

One part of the excellent Curro education, is that academics are balanced with sports and cultural activities. Participation activities promote team-awareness, collaboration, and self-confidence. Our extensive range of activities are tailored to the interests of our learners. Activities such as t-ball and basketball even give learners a boost in their education, because they help your child become confident in formulating their ideas and making their voice heard.
