Gauteng Provincial Government to launch integrated sport and arts programme in schools

The Gauteng Department of Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation, together with the Gauteng Department of Education, will on Wednesday launch the highly anticipated Sport and Arts Integrated Programme for Gauteng Schools.

The Integrated Schools Sport and Arts programme, which has been dubbed the Gauteng CreActive Sports and Arts Schools Programme, aims to breathe new life into school sport and elevate competitive participation in the arts and recreational activities in schools.
The programme will be implemented in over 400 no fee schools in the province, with the introduction of Netball and Soccer Leagues as pilot sporting codes for participating schools.
In addition, the introduction of an arts and culture programme will give creatively inclined learners an opportunity to compete and showcase their talents in activities such as dance, chorale, clap and tap, drum majorettes and school war cries, fine arts and many others.
