What do we offer?
At Curro Academy Parkdene, we balance academic excellence with sports- and cultural well-being, thereby ensuring that learners develop into well-rounded individuals. Our foundation phase provides a strong basis of skills and knowledge on which more intensive learning is built throughout primary and high school.
Our enhanced curriculum 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 in some of our specialised subjects.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting friendship and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. Many of our activities are designed to help learners learn valuable skills that require more time for development than can be provided during the daily programme.
Our value-added programmes, which are built into our affordable school fees, include character-building programmes and career guidance for learners in high school.
How do we reach out to our community?
At our school, we believe that outreach programmes are important not only to benefit the community, but also to develop appreciation and empathy in our learners. Therefore, we try to host one outreach programme per school term. Projects or beneficiaries can be identified by the school, learners, or parents, and learners are actively involved in all areas of the project.
