GP Education postpones online applications for 2020

The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) has postponed the opening of the online admissions applications from 13 May 2019 to 20 May 2019.

This follows concerns raised by the Federation of Associations of Governing Bodies of South African (FEDSAS), union Suid-Afrikaanse Onderwysunie (SAOU), and other SGB associations.

The request was to delay the opening of Grade 1 and Grade 8 school admissions for the 2020 academic year.

These stakeholders pleaded with the MEC to delay the opening of the online admissions application because the department is implementing the newly amended admissions regulations and feeder zones for the first time. 

“They believe that it is necessary to heighten greater awareness on the changes in legislation and admissions processes for public benefit.

“The MEC humbly acceded to the request and as such the admissions application period will commence on Monday, 20 May 2019 at 08:00 and close on 22 July 2019 at 24:00,” said the GDE MEC Panyaza Lesufi.

This will allow the GDE the opportunity to inform the public of the department's tutorial and step-by-step user-guide to clarify how the system functions and acquaint parents with the 2020 admissions processes.

“This will include the amendments to the admissions regulations and the incorporation of the feeder zones.
