Curro Academy Mbombela
In 2014, Halls Properties commenced with planning of the third phase of the Riverside Precinct and, in 2018, Riverside Park Extensions 35 and 36, were proclaimed. Shortly thereafter, Halls Properties and Curro Holdings concluded a sale for a land parcel, 4.36 ha in extent, to be developed as a Curro Academy.
Curro Academy Mbombela is a fully independent, co-educational, English-medium school. Construction of the school is currently underway and Curro will open the nursery school phase in 2020. From 2021, the school will phase in higher grades for primary and high school. The development of a new school will expand the severely constrained educational offering in the city and is a welcome addition to the Riverside Precinct. It is also expected to be a catalyst to much needed residential development in the precinct, which will roll out in Riverside Park Ext 35 and 36.
