Curro Academy Wilgeheuwel learner selected for prestigious mentorship programme

The wait was finally over on July 26 when Curro Create announced the names of the first-ever group of learners to be part of their Advanced Mentorship Programme (AMP).

Curro Academy Wilgeheuwel Independent School congratulated their Grade 8 learner, Samantha Cuthbert on being selected as one of this year’s group of AMP learners.

Samantha is exceptional as she is one of the Curro Create selected 30 learners out of a group of almost 6 000.

The learners selected are recognised as creative outliers in their field, and AMP allows them to be mentored by a professional artist in their specific discipline.

Curro Create is the creative engine within the Curro group of schools, and through various national projects, Curro Create helps learners develop their creative skills to their full potential.

Powered by theatre-makers Hennie van Greunen and Pedro Kruger from Wordsmith’s Theatre Factory the national Curro Create initiatives help learners to discover and develop their creativity in a wide range of disciplines.
