The deadline for grade one and eight online application admissions for the 2020 academic year ends at midnight on Monday.
While nearly 300,000 applications have been received, MEC Panyaza Lesufi says he is concerned that about 63,000 parents are yet to submit required documents to schools.
He says provisions have been made to accept the documents until August.
We have extended that to the end of August so they can give us all the relevant documents. If they cannot do that at the end of August we have no choice but to offload them and then take those that have applied and slot them in.— Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng Education MEC
By now I must tell parents that have not applied, yes they have the remaining hours but the reality is that the good schools have been taken. Just in case the 62, 000 parents do not submit documents, we will still have that window of opportunity but I doubt it.— Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng Education MEC
