The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) says MEC Panyaza Lesufi is finalising all admissions appeals and responses for the placement of Grade one and eight pupils ahead of the opening of schools on 15 January.
The department has announced that the late registration for Grade 1 and 8 Admissions will officially open on Tuesday, and close on Friday.
In a statement the department says, only schools with available spaces will be availed on the system during the Late Registration Period.
“Applicants should also note that they will be provisionally be placed at the schools that they have applied to. Placement at the school will be confirmed once parents submit the required documents. There will be no objections and appeals as there are only limited spaces.”
MEC Lesufi has reiterated that parents who submitted appeals to other government offices other than the office of MEC for Gauteng Education will not be responded to as the appeals process is clearly articulated in the regulations.
