The Gauteng Provincial Government has called on parents who have not yet found schools for their children to take advantage of the late application period which opens on Wednesday, 15 January to Friday, 24 January 2020.
Only schools with capacity will be availed in the system during this period. Applicants will be provisionally placed, until they submit documents to the school accordingly. No objections or appeals will be entertained.
"Unfortunately, we can only accommodate a certain number of learners at our schools and as such call upon parents to accept placement offers by the as these are the only spaces available at some schools.
"Based on the stats on the System we have a total of 912 Primary Schools and 374 High Schools with space available for LATE APPLICATIONS", said Gauteng MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi.
To deal with the anticipated influx of late applications, all districts will operate as walk-in centres to assist parents with applications from 15 24 January 2020.
Parents who need assistance are encouraged to visit the district offices.
