Curro Brackenfell's junior and senior choirs won several trophies at the Sing in Harmonie provincial finals this weekend.
The junior choir was the overall winner for the junior choir category and also won the category for the best non-Afrikaans song. The senior choir was the second overall winner for the senior choir category and also won the viewer's choice award.
Singing in a choir takes a lot of dedication and discipline, as well as long hours of practise. Congratulations to all learners who participated and thank you to teachers Myrtle and Lelanie for their great effort and commitment.
Curro Durbanville's junior, senior and high school choirs placed first, second and third in their respective categories at this year's Tygerberg International Eisteddfod gala evening held on Friday, 2 August 2019 in the Endler Hall in Stellenbosch.
Their scores were as follows:
- Junior choir: First place with a score of 93.5%
- Senior choir: Third place with a score of 91.6%
- High school choir: Second place with a score of 90.3%
This evening was an astounding testament to the hours of commitment and dedication on the part of the learners and music department. The school initially made history by having all three choirs invited to the gala evening and their achievement at the event shows how passion and hard work can lead to success.

Learners at Meridian Karino can soon participate in robotics club as an extramural activity. Grade 7 learners have already started enjoying the club and Grade 4, 6 and 8 learners can join in 2020, thanks to contributions from Curro Thatchfield and Curro Roodeplaat.
The intensive programming involved in robotics prepares learners to understand and participate in the ever-changing 21st century where most processes are computerised and introduces them to new career possibilities. It also provides insight into the technology involved with modern developments such as self-driven cars and artificial intelligence.
These projects promote creativity and, as they are done in groups, also improve skills such as communication, collaboration and critical thinking that help learners integrate in society and the workplace.
