Thousands of learners in the Western Cape will start Grade 1 and Grade 8 in 2025. The provincial education department is now releasing placement offers for these learners. 


A recent ruling by the Western Cape High Court compels the Western Cape Education Department to place all students who applied to schools. This is a significant development for learners who have missed months in the classroom. 


Thousands of parents submitted admission applications for Western Cape schools in 2025. However, the department has opened the late application period to ensure learners whose parents didn't apply for placement can still do so. 


The Western Cape province has high ambitions for the new year by tackling the electricity crisis. The province's government has put in place multiple solutions that can hopefully lessen the strain of the continuous blackouts. 


In 2020, schools around South Africa shut for extended periods as the country was forced to navigate the Covid-19 pandemic. The loss of learning time has been observed through recent examinations.

 


Earlier this week, Statistics South Africa released the Quarterly Labour Force Survey for the final quarter of 2021. Whilst unemployment rose countrywide, one province has celebrated the creation of jobs.
