Cosmo Secondary School 1 achieves 86% pass mark – Matric Class of 2022

By Mzukona Mantshontsho

Cosmo Secondary School 1 achieved an 86% pass mark for the Matric Class of 2022 examinations. This is the first high school to be established in Cosmo City.

The Cosmo City Development is the first public private partnership worth R3.5billion between the City of Johannesburg, Basil Read, Codevco as well as the community in South Africa.

Cosmo City emerged out of an urgent need to provide accommodation for the informal settlers of Zeverfontein and Riverbend who had been illegally occupying privately owned land 25 kilometres North West of the Johannesburg Central Business District.

Cosmo City continues to grow as a place of choice and as a community. That number has increased substantially over the years with backrooms being built, mostly in the RDP houses, now with the semi-financed houses and bonded ones.

For those that did not achieve, they can register for the supplementary examinations.

The National Matric Class of 2022 pass rate is 80.1%, Basic Education Minister Angelina Matsie Motshekga said yesterday 19 January 2023.
