The Gauteng Department of Education hosted the first award ceremony at Curtis Nkondo School of Specialization in Emndeni.
The event was mainly aimed at rewarding great work done by the top three exceptional learners from each of the nine subjects and to encourage others to do more and do better.
The event was in the form of a gala dinner and with a number of government dignitaries in the presence of parents and learners from the school.
“That’s the main reason why we are committed as the department to make sure that we launch a special school every month.
“This school aims to break away from the classical way of doing things and aims to incorporate practical learning so that the learner is equipped by the time they leave school.
