The Western Cape Department of Education said 80 percent of late enrolment learners in the province come from the Eastern Cape and they largely go to the metro area.

The WCED has enrolled 19 857 learners from the Eastern Cape and majority of these learners are entering Grade R. 

WCED MEC Donald Grant said in a flow of people coming into the province since 2010, of 131 834 about 9 456 are coming in from outside the country and most of them come from the Eastern Cape and most of them go to the metro area.

Grant said there are also two districts that experience late enrolments, metro East and district north is most under pressure.

He added that this influx of people put pressure on the departments` annual budget as they need to accommodate these learners.
