Limpopo Education on admission in public schools for 2018
Admission in public schools for 2018
The Limpopo Department of Education is currently in the process of registering leaners for admission in public schools for the next year. Admission will take place from the 18th April to 31 May 2017.
We are calling on all parents and guardians whose children will be going to school for the first time, or moving to a new school next year to immediately collect registration forms from the schools nearest to their home or work address.
These forms must be completed and returned to the said schools as a matter of extreme urgency, particularly in the urban areas because they have a great demand for admission of learners.
In order to register your child you must take the following documents with you:
- Birth certificate or acceptable proof of birth date (do not take a baptismal certificate as proof)
- Immunisation card
- Transfer card, and or
- Last report card.
If you are not a South African citizen, you must also take the following documents:
- Study /work permit
- Temporary or permanent Residence Permit from South African Department of Home Affairs.
- Evidence that you have applied for permission to stay in South Africa.
The Department of Education will monitor the admission process very closely to minimise the occurrence of unfair discrimination. We call on all parents to immediately go and register their children for 2018 admission.
Ages for admission
- Grade R – 4 years and turning 5 in June 2017
- Grad 1 – 5 years and turning 6 in June 2017
Challenges experienced in the past
Experience taught us there some parents who ignore the call to register their children until the closing date.
At the beginning of the New Year they run around to schools seeking for registration. This is a sad situation which leaves poor innocent children stranded and stressed and it is uncalled for.
Let us imagine a child going from one school to the other while others are learning just because parents did not do their part. It becomes a sad moment that in main affect the moral of the child.
The Limpopo Department of Education calls for all to register their children on said dates and by 30 June 2017, the schools will inform parents on the results following their application.
