Public schools’ registrations closing date looming


The Limpopo Department of Education has announced that online registrations for public schools in the province will be closing on Friday 29 July.

The department has urged parents and guardians to use the remaining time to secure space for their children.

Department Spokesperson, Mike Maringa, said the applications closing date will affect admission for Grade R to Grade 12 that commenced on 24 May 2022 at all public schools in the province.

“After the online closing date, the department will only process walk-in applications for the year 2023 learners’ admission in public schools,” he said.

Mavhungu Lerule-Ramakhanya, Education Department MEC in Limpopo, is pleading with parents and guardians to use the remaining time to register their children for admission.

She emphasized that a proactive approach will ease the annual registration challenges faced by schools and circuits in the beginning of the year.

“We are also urging parents, especially those residing in townships and villages not to overlook schools nearer to their places of residence in favour of urban schools as they have a common curriculum. The migration of learners from villages and townships schools to urban schools has significantly reduced learner enrolment in most rural schools, which has led to merging as well as closure of schools that do not meet the required threshold,” she said.

The MEC said the department’s focus is mainly on the lower grades (grade R and grade 1) and learners who are either switching schools or progressing to senior schools.

“The applicants will receive feedback in or before the end of August 2022. Returning learners will be issued with confirmation forms in September 2022. The number of all applications received and processed will be communicated when the registration process is finalized,” concluded Lerule-Ramakhanya.
