Curro Academy Riverside 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: Belinda Gibson 

‘Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. Sail away from the safe harbour. Explore. Dream. Discover.’ – Mark Twain 

This is your time to explore and embrace each moment of your destiny! 


Head boy: Arendiwe Māhanga 
Always remember these words from Nelson Mandela: ‘Action without vision is only passing time, vision without action is merely day dreaming, but vision with action can change the world.’  


Head girl: Mosa Phala 

In the words of Anatole France: ‘To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe.’
