St Dominics Newcastle 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: Chad Moses

To the Class of 2023. May your futures shine bright and may the journey that you are about to embark on be one filled with wonderful experiences and beautiful memories. Please carry in your heart that the race of life that we each must run looks different for us all. Instead of looking to your left or your right, keep your gaze fixed on your own path. We will continue to cheer you on as you strive for future successes.


Head boy: Mvelo Mashinini

I believe in striving for the difficult, as the best destinations are always achieved after them. Make use of all the opportunities handed to you, as I did. Participate and see what your strengths are. These past five years have helped me grow into who I am now.

Strive to be the best person you can be and never settle for anything but your best.


Head girl: Dia Singh

The power of perseverance and hard work has been my guide in matric as determination paves the way for remarkable achievements. My passion for learning and dedication to serving the school community have been the driving force behind my leadership journey as both a head prefect and a Grade 12 learner. In such a position, I strive to be a good role model to my peers; to show them that they can also achieve their goals.

Integrity, empathy and resilience are key characteristics I have tried to embody as I know that success isn't solely measured by grades, but by the positive impact you make on others.

The fun we shared with our teddy

Whoopy has arrived and our learners could not wait to get him out the box and into their arms!


Whoopy was a big hit at many home matches this year, here he’s posing with Ciana Captain and Lacey Grace Moses (Grade 1).


All dressed up, and with a fancy event to go to! Whoopy looked dashing and set many hearts aflutter at the matric dance.
