HeronBridge 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 school leaders … let’s hear from them!

Executive Head: Keith Wilke

It is not within our power to tell the wind which direction to blow or how strong it should be, but we each have the power to navigate purposefully through any storms we face.

To the very special Class of 2023, I keenly anticipate watching on from a distant shore how you conquer the world, with heart.


Head boy: Thabang Ramokoma
‘Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.’ – Henry Ford


Head girl: Agapé Ledimo
Leadership is about inspiring people rather than forcing them in a direction.

‘A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.’ – John C Maxwell
