Acknowledging the recent Curro social media post incident, the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) has taken note of Curro Holdings’ statement addressing the racially unbalanced narrative portrayed in the post.

Over the weekend, images circulated online, sparking public outrage as they depicted a black learner as a cashier and a white learner as a veterinarian, according to Jacaranda FM.

On Tuesday, Curro Holdings released a statement admitting the error and promptly removing the post. The statement emphasised the organisation’s commitment to diversity and non-racialism within its schools. Curro pledged to investigate the post’s circumstances to prevent similar incidents in the future.
