What do we offer?
At Curro Bankenveld, we balance academic excellence with sports and cultural activities that ensure learners develop into well-rounded individuals. We provide a strong educational foundation starting with carefully designed programmes in Grade R (such as the Bazoo integrated literacy programme) and building to a variety of specialised subjects (such as Economic and Management Sciences) in primary and high school.
Teaching takes place in English or Afrikaans
Our enhanced curriculum – taught in English or Afrikaans – 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 learning by using tablets in the classroom rather than textbooks. Our learners are prepared for the IEB examination at the end of Grade 12, and we focus on a greater world-readiness rather than merely an exam-driven approach.
Furthermore, our variety of meticulously kept sports fields along with additional facilities such as aftercare, transport and modern classrooms help to ensure that our learners get the best possible learning experience.
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. Therefore, we offer a wide variety of sports and cultural activities, including Curro Create programmes, aimed at helping learners develop interests and talents that might otherwise have been undiscovered. Such activities include golf, mountain biking, gymnastics, music, and many more.
How do we use technology in the classroom?
Our school’s modern classrooms are fitted with the latest learning tools aimed at providing our learners with an enhanced learning experience. In Grade R, the Duplo Lego programme introduces thinking patterns such as creative thinking and problem solving through fun, innovative play. These thinking patterns form the basis for an understanding of later Technology studies in primary school and high school.
Learners from Grade 7 onwards benefit from 21st-century learning by using tablets (e-books) rather than textbooks for certain subjects. 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.
