Curro Monaghan is an independent school near Lanseria International Airport that provides high-quality, English-medium education for learners from Grade R to Grade 7. Alongside our mainstream offering, our assisted learning stream accommodates learners from Grade 2 to Grade 4 who require additional support to achieve expected competencies in the core academic skills – literacy and numeracy – with the goal of reintegrating them in the mainstream environment within two to three years.
What is assisted learning?
Curro Monaghan’s assisted learning stream provides excellent academic intervention within the mainstream curriculum. The small classes allow teachers to attend to each learner based on their needs, while allowing them to work at their own pace until they are equipped to cope in the mainstream environment.
The assisted learning stream includes remedial teachers and therapists focusing on English and Mathematics. Learners could also participate in all sports, cultural and extramural activities offered by the school.
What do we offer?
At Curro Monaghan, we offer a unique approach to mainstream education and assisted learning. Learners who need academic intervention are moved to small classes where they can get the personal attention needed while still following the mainstream curriculum. The goal is to reintegrate them in the mainstream environment within two to three years. Some of our specialised subjects include Robotics and Music. The technology and tools to offer these subjects have been built into our school fees for this year.
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. Some of our activities include choir, chess and swimming. We also offer value-added programmes such as educational tours and excursions, character-building programmes, and anti-bullying campaigns.
