The MEC for Education in the province, Matome Chiloane, made an  announcement on Sunday, regarding the 2024 online application period for grades one and eight, which opens from 15 June until 14 July.

However earlier this year, a number of parents expressed their grievances about the process after it failed to place some learners on time for this academic period. Chiloane said the department is tacking actions to building more schools to avoid learners not being placed due to space constraints.

“Our system has been growing over the past 10 years or so. So, the infrastructure need is also becoming exponential, so we have to come up with measures.''

"That is why I say that parents must be rest assured that in terms of capacity, we are working around the clock to ensure that we get the spaces right, so that the capacity is increased” he said.
