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 www.gdeadmissions.gov.za. 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.
  • Step 3 will then allow you to apply for the school of your choice.

Once you are done with the registration process you will receive a waiting list number and details of documents which need to be submitted to the school of your choice.

They have even provided a video tutorial (please note that while the video is discussing 2018, the same applies to 2019), which you can watch below.

Please note that this article is purely informative and all queries and concerns need to be sent to the Education Department directly. We are unable to provide assistance on this matter as we are a news agency.
