Cooper College Matric 2023

You had a bear celebrity with a special bear identity, who helped you forget your worries and your strife. Matric is like a rollercoaster ride – often stressful, but with loads of chances to make lasting memories. 


Your school's trusty teddy bear buddy was right there, sharing in the experience, and so were your executive head and class leaders … let’s hear from them!

Executive Head: Hesna Muller  

Somebody once wrote a few words that I would like to share with you: ‘This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind … let it be something great!’  

We believe that our learners at Cooper College are imaginative, resourceful and are the sources of energy and enterprise that underpin everything that we do. They are precious and valued. Their growth is the mission of the school. However, life is not about expecting, hoping, and wishing, it is about doing, being and becoming. Remember the words of Thomas Edison, ‘If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves’ 


Head leader: Aman Harripersadh 

Today, expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday. Realise the past no longer holds you captive. It can only continue to hurt you if you hold on to it. 


Deputy head leader: Ameera Sulaiman

If there is one thing these years have taught me, it’s that mistakes along the way pave the path to perfection. Be the author of your own story. And to my Class of 2023, I wish you all the best for your futures, inshallah we’ll go out with a bang 

Deputy head leader: Banele Mgcina 

Inspiration comes from overcoming failure.
