What do we offer?
At Curro Academy Wilgeheuwel, we offer a high-quality curriculum at affordable school fees, along with a wide variety of subjects and activities, as we believe that a well-rounded education stretches beyond academics. Our small class sizes and enriched curriculum provide learners with an inherent dedication to hard work and excellence as well as 21st-century skills to prepare them for the workplace of the future.
Some of our specialised subjects include Robotics and Computers, and Engineering Graphics and Design in the high school. Furthermore, our value-added programmes, which are offered as part of the school fees, include intervention lessons, Saturday academic boot camps as well as an NSC exam preparation week for Grade 12 learners.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting health, team-awareness, discipline and self-confidence. Many of our activities are designed to help learners discover their inherent talents, or to broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework. These activities are generally included in the school fees.
How do we use technology in the classroom?
Learners from the intermediate phase onwards benefit from 21st-century learning by using e-learning devices (e-books). 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.
Classrooms for subjects such as Computer Literacy and Technology are fitted with modern tools and equipment to ensure that learners learn skills that are current in the workplace.
