The Crags Primary School was built in 1981 and is the only school in Kurland Village. There are approximately 650 pupils speaking both Afrikaans and Xhosa from Grade 1 to 9. There are so few teachers allocated to this school by the Dept of Education, resulting in some classes having up to 90 pupils per class! The quality of education was therefore affected and children were leaving school at 14 or 15, ill prepared for modern living. Since Kids of Kurland have introduced the additional teachers the classes are down to an average of 35 - 47 per class. Although this is much better, it is still inadequate for improved learning. Smaller classes produce better results and social problems can be identified and addressed.
