Curro Mount Richmore aims to not only offer learners the best possible education, but guide them through their challenging high school and teenage years.

One teacher who has taken on the role of mother-away-from-home, is not only loved and respected across the school but also embodies the school’s ‘your family is our family’ ethos.

Life Orientation teacher Merheza O’Brien teaches children how to explore their emotions and helps them mature into young, successful adults.

“At Curro our curriculum balances academic excellence with sports and culture, developing learners into well-rounded individuals who are able to compete at an international level.”

A critical part of that curriculum is the school’s approach to Life Orientation.

“I give my learners the opportunity to find their voice in a safe space with no judgement,” says O’Brien, who has more than 30 years’ experience in teaching.
