A great learning experience
The Curro system is very structured and rigid. The work hours are reasonable and the salary is as expected of an educator position. The staff are warm and friendly and the learners are of diverse cultures.

Stressful and Rewarding
The school is still new, therefore stress levels are high, we often manage in crisis mode. I have learn't a lot about teaching and myself working here. The hardest part about my job would be balancing my personal and work life. The best part of my job is to be a teacher.
ConsDisorganised and poor management

Provide opportunity to grow and be a valuable teacher
Because you work with learners, co-educators and parents not two days are the same. Every day something new is happening. This is on the one hand exciting and it forces you to be alert and creative, but also very tiring.
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with young people, to be part of the process to prepare them for their future after school.

Stressful and too much strife
I was not happy at the school. The school was barely 1 and a half years old and we had 2 admin people and 15 teachers resigning since last year. All 920 odd pupils from gr r to gr9 in one building. Discipline issues. The heads who are all high school teachers run the foundation phase like the rest of the school. Our phase head resigned in the third term last year. Too many unhappy people. Salary does not equate the workload and stress. Unrealistic expectations. They make decisions and don't respect teachers opinions. I am an experienced teacher but they humour you and don't listen. Very important to keep parents happy and get more bums on the seats. Suppose to be private 33 in a class. NO ADMIN PERIODS FOR FOUNDATION PHASE TEACHERS.
ConsToo much unhappiness, disrespect for teachers expertise
