A curro member told News24 that “Curro are cognisant of the allegation made on social media and the matter is currently subject to internal investigation. Curro reiterates that comments made about the school, the artwork and the learner are not an accurate reflection of our school and the situation referred to.” The member also stated that they don’t want to comment until an internal examination has been finished.
