‘What we are is God’s gift to us, what we become is our gift to God.’ Eleanor Powell
What does one look for when deciding on a school for a child in South Africa? Many people believe that past matric results play a huge role in their decision. Yes, matric results are very important, and certainly contribute to the success of a school, but one needs to investigate how these learners, once matriculated, adapt to the demands of tertiary educational institutions, to societal norms and practices, and to workplace integration in our country. The strength of Curro Serengeti lies in the ability to challenge a learner academically and to ensure that each day is a learning experience for him or her. We believe that, as we strive for excellence and promote the potential of each individual learner through dynamic curriculum development, we are also educating young South Africans to transform our country into a truly peaceful and productive nation.
As a very young school our values – based on our educational approach and our efforts to maintain our Christian ethos – strengthen our drive to develop our learners to a level at which they are prepared and equipped to deal with the challenges of modern society. Ultimately, the greatest advertisement for a school is not what learners achieve, but what they become.
Our function at Curro Serengeti is to develop, encourage and educate our learners on the basis of the foundations of the four core value pillars of Curro schools, namely child friendliness, excellence, positive discipline and creative thinking. Through these values, Curro Serengeti creates a balanced educational arena in which many extramural activities, such as sport and culture, can be enjoyed by learners while not losing sight of the core essence of a typical school, namely successful learning.
Education must at all times be relevant, and therefore change is called for from time to time. Curro Serengeti will always strive to provide a balanced approach to education. In an age of change, uncertainty, failing standards and materialism, we will never lose sight of the real meaning and purpose of education.
