Curro Somerset West 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: Graeme Waite

We are extremely proud of our Class of 2023. Each individual has thrived in all areas and platforms in their journey at Curro Somerset West and we have no doubt that they will excel in this new chapter of their lives, taking with them memories that will last a lifetime.
