A number of provinces have opened their online application portals for learners starting Grade 1 and Grade 8 in 2023. While parents can apply for specific schools, some schools will require learners to complete tests before they can be admitted.

The Gauteng Education Department has announced the opening dates for online school applications in the province. Here’s why Grade R parents should take note of the dates.

Parents in Gauteng will have a four-week period to apply for a placement at schools for their children attending Grade 1 and Grade 8 in 2023. 

Technology has evolved the way we conduct daily tasks and the days of approaching schools directly for learner placement are no longer standard practice in many of South Africa’s provinces.


Last week 700 learners were not placed in schools in Gauteng. This was worrying for parents as the school year had begun.

Over a period of 12 months, 23 226 teenage pregnancies were reported in Gauteng. The report also revealed that girls between the ages of 10 and 14 gave birth to 934 babies. 

The South African economy will not be able to remain globally competitive if it does not move away from Victorian-era, rote learning systems and embrace education methods that are tailored for the new digital future of work.

After receiving thousands of applications for learner placements, the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) has now moved on to the next step of the application process. 

With the final matric exams less than 3 weeks away, over 700 000 full time candidates are counting down the days until they write the biggest exams of their school career. The Department of Basic Education held a media briefing on Friday to unpack its readiness for the final exams.

With learners set to return to school next week, the Department of Basic Education is expected to address parents and learners about changes they can expect.
