Schooling Teacher

The 2019 online registration system for grade one and eight pupils is live meaning that parents can register their children easily for the 2019 schooling year.


The online portal for 2019 schooling registrations is currently live. Applications will close at the end of May so parents are being urged to act fast.

To avoid technical problems this year, the provincial Education Department worked with the Home Affairs Department and its experts to strengthen the online portal.

“Everyone who doesn’t know how to use it, they can visit any community library and that library is going to have admission personnel who will assist them on how to enrol. So if you can’t afford data, you can go there.” – Panyaza Lesufi, MEC

If you would like to know how to register your child, check out the tips below.

Register your children for 2019 on the online portal by logging into Online applications will open on the 16th of April 2018 from 8 am and close at midnight on the 28th of May 2018.

Registration Process

  • When you land on the homepage click on the “Apply for 2019” button in the middle of the page. From the next page click on the “Continue” button after reading the terms and conditions. Follow the steps.
  • Step 1 of the registration process will require you to enter your details as a child’s parent or guardian.
  • Step 2 will require you to enter the child’s details.
