Curro Nelspruit Matric 2022

You had a bear celebrity with a special bear identity, who helped you forget your worries and your strife. Matric is an important and often stressful year, but it’s also a time to make memories that will last a lifetime. 

Your school’s teddy shared in the experience! 


Let’s hear it from your head girl and boy 


Ané Janse van Rensburg and Willem Blom 

What a roller-coaster ride the past five years have been! From starting out as insecure Grade 8 learners, to remote schooling in Grade 10, from full-time masks in Grade 11 to a mask-free Grade 12 year! We survived the Fanie Botha Grade 9 camp as well as our leadership camp at Queen’s River, which will definitely make for some interesting stories when we are older (and wiser)!  

Although there have been some tough academic times, late-night assignments and (very few) horrible losses on the sports field, we have survived – and we are more than ready to tackle all the challenges that life will throw at us! We are grateful and blessed as we say thank you to everybody at Curro Nelspruit and the greater Nelspruit community. You all gave meaning and value to our school careers. We will always look back at high school with the fondest memories.  

Wake up. Curro. Sleep. Repeat.
