What do we offer?
At Curro Langebaan, we balance academic excellence with sports and cultural activities that ensure learners develop into well-rounded individuals. We provide a strong educational foundation starting with carefully designed programmes in Grade R (such as the Bazoo integrated literacy programme) and building to a variety of specialised subjects (such as Engineering Graphics and Design) in primary and high school.
We incorporate 21st-century learning
Our enhanced curriculum, taught in English and Afrikaans, incorporates a project-based learning approach, while our dedicated teachers and recreational activities aim to make learning a fun experience. We also incorporate 21st-century learning by using tablets in the classroom for certain subjects, rather than textbooks. Our learners are prepared for the IEB examination at the end of Grade 12, and we focus on a greater world-readiness rather than merely an exam-driven approach.
What does our boarding school offer?
Curro Langebaan’s boarding school offers safe accommodation for learners from Grade 5 to Grade 12. With no more than four boarders per room, laundry and housekeeping facilities, comfortable learning areas, and live-in boarding school staff, our boarding school is a safe, comforting home away from home.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting friendship, team-awareness and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. Therefore, we offer a wide variety of sports and cultural activities, including Curro Create programmes, aimed at helping learners develop interests and talents that might otherwise have been undiscovered.
Our learners enjoy healthy competition with surrounding schools and often achieve outstanding results in the West Boland eisteddfod.
How do we use technology in the classroom?
Our school’s modern classrooms are fitted with the latest learning tools aimed at providing our learners with an enhanced learning experience. In Grade R, the Duplo Lego programme introduces thinking patterns such as creative thinking and problem solving through fun, innovative play. These thinking patterns form the basis for an understanding of later Robotics studies.
Our learners further benefit from 21st-century learning by gaining skills relevant to the workplace of the future in subjects such as Technology and Natural Sciences, and by using tablets (e-books) rather than textbooks for certain subjects from the intermediate phase onward. Using innovative technology allows teachers to provide a wealth of information at the touch of a button and better prepares learners for the workplace of the future.
