Meet Curro’s new principal

JC Engelbrecht is the new principal for Curro Aurora.

Meet JC Engelbrecht, the new Curro Aurora principal who was brought into the team this year.

His name may sound familiar to you – and it should.

Engelbrecht was the SABC 2 and 3 weatherman for many years.

Studying the weather is not his only talent, however as he also has a Master’s degree in Environmental Management and Policy Development and has 14 years experience in the education sector.

“I have always been involved in education; I started my career in 1990. I came from a family that was involved in education, so for me, it was a natural flow,” said Engelbrecht.

His new role as principal of Curro Aurora is mostly a managerial role, but he does have the freedom to teach a class now and then.

“I like the freedom I have; it takes me away from my desk and into the classroom. This helps me interact with the learners and staff.”

Engelbrecht hopes with his years of experience he will help develop the curriculum, assist in financial planning as well as make sure the school has the top teachers in the business.

“I am grateful to the staff and parents for such a warm welcome. I hope to have years of interaction with them to ensure that our learners and their parents are happy at our school,” added Engelbrecht.

Above all else, he feels that that quality, value-driven education is the next step for generations to come.

“We believe that Curro learners are game-changers, not only in school but as citizens in our country.”
