JOHANNESBURG – Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says the online registration process is not meant to frustrate parents and guardians or cause them anxiety.

Lesufi was speaking to the media at Hoerskool MenloPark in Pretoria on Sunday regarding the placement process for Year 1 and Year 8 students for next year.

Outlining the plan for the 2023 academic year, the MEC emphasized that the online registration system is intended to be accessible.

“Because I think a lot of people think we went down this road in order to frustrate them, in order to place them with an acceptable level of anxiety, but with online registrations you can queue in five schools at the same time. Your forms will be taken into account, your application will be counted and we may be able to trace each application.”

The department launched the system in 2016 promising it would be a game-changer for school admissions.

However, due to technical issues, the system has increasingly become a nightmare for parents and school management.
