Parents who are yet to use the Gauteng Department of Education’s online admissions site to apply for kids going to grades one and/or eight in 2018, have one more day to do so before it’s too late.

The online admission application system opened for late applications at 08:00 on 1st November and will close today, 10th November at midnight.

The system was re-opened to give parents who missed the 12 June deadline an opportunity to apply. No new applications will be processed in January 2018, the department said.

Of 2 017 public schools which have either grade one or eight or both, 402 are already full and won’t accept anymore applications.

Parents who applied during the Admissions period in May, who still have not been placed, are urged to visit the district office for placement or email the department on [email protected] for urgent assistance. These parents need not apply as their details are already on the system.

“The Department has plans to ensure that all applicants that applied on time are placed. Once more, we thank the people of Gauteng for their overwhelming response to our call to utilise the online application system,” said Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi.
