The Gauteng Department of Education has today, 03 August 2018, commenced with placement of learners. This means all parents who applied for the 2019 Admissions for Grade 1 and Grade 8 during the application period (16 April 2018 to 28 May 2018) will receive offers of placement via SMS.
Parents must visit our website www.gdeadmissions.gov.za to accept or reject the offer of placement within seven (7) working days. In the event of lost login credentials (username and password) parents may be assisted by contacting our Call Centre on 0800 000 789 or by visiting the nearest District Office. Failure to respond to the offer of placement will result in the forfeiture of the offer to the next applicant on the Waiting List. Parents with pending status on the system are requested to be patient; offers will be issued throughout the placement period.
Parents that failed to submit the required documents to the schools during the allocated time frame (16 April 2018 to 5 June 2018), are requested to submit documents at District Offices from Monday, 10 September to Friday, 14 September 2018. These applicants and all those who could not be placed by schools due to capacity will be placed by Districts. The Department plans to place all Grade 1 and 8 learners for the 2019 academic year by 31 October 2018.
