Continuing the province’s dedication to establishing centres of educational excellence, the Gauteng Department of Education has seen the Schools of Specialisation Programme shape the educational landscape. Khutlo-Tharo has become the 35th specialised school to be inaugurated in Gauteng.

Reflecting on the impact of these specialised schools, the department expressed its aspirations, “As we reflect on the journey thus far, it is clear that the Schools of Specialisation Programme has become an integral part of Gauteng’s educational legacy. Through collaboration, innovation, and a steadfast commitment to excellence, Gauteng continues to strive for greatness.”

The initiative of Khutlo-Tharo signifies much more than academic advancement; it’s a leap towards rectifying the social imbalances by providing access to resources for underprivileged learners. “We take pride in Khutlo-Tharo continuing to be a beacon of hope in this community and beyond, providing underprivileged learners with opportunities to explore and develop their creative talents that might otherwise have remained dormant within the confines of traditional education,” the Gauteng Education Department commented in a recent overview.

Recognising the role of arts in modern education, the department underscored the advantages of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) education, which has been shown to elevate creativity, academic performance and further enrich the learning experience for students.

Khutlo-Tharo Performing and Creative Arts School embraces this STEAM initiative wholeheartedly, allowing students to connect with traditional subjects through an artistic perspective. “Indeed, we envision a transformative educational journey that nurtures and challenges learners’ technical, creative, and academic talents. We are committed to dispelling stereotypes associated with arts education and demonstrating the boundless possibilities that lie ahead,” MEC Matome Chiloane declared with conviction.

The academic excellence of Khutlo-Tharo is self-evident, with the school’s accolades in the realm of music coinciding with outstanding achievement in matriculation results – boasting a laudable 90.8% pass rate in 2023.

The school’s launch showcased how art and science intertwine, balancing academic pursuits with entertainment and creativity. Entrepreneurial skills are also encouraged, with students selling self-made jewellery, artwork, and other crafts.

Looking at the aspirations the Gauteng Education Department holds for its learners, Chiloane articulated the grand perspective, “Our goal is to cultivate well-rounded citizens who will contribute meaningfully to our society and beyond, and it is the learners of Khutlo-Tharo who will be the trailblazers who turn these possibilities into reality. We look forward to embarking on this journey of growth, innovation and empowerment alongside our learners, staff and community.”
