GDE: Outstanding Learners Finally Find Placement


The promises made by the Gauteng Education Department has been fulfilled as the outstanding learners in grade 1 and grade 8 have been placed in schools across the province.

Since the start of the 2018 academic year, the department have been struggling to place thousands of learners across the Gauteng province due to applying in high pressure areas which resulted in shortage of space.

The education Department Steve Mabona revealed that all future applicants who will be applying for the 2019 academic year, will be provided with an opportunity to make applications when the online application are open.

“So we have all those learners that have been placed across the board and we are just saying parents must look out for when we announce again that we are opening the system.”

While on Monday 26th February marks the start of the matric supplementary exams nationwide, the department wishes all second chance candidates well.

“Good luck to those that will be writing because we know that this period, it means that they would have been given ample time to prepare for those supplementary examinations.”
