The online registration system is a provincial government web platform where parents can apply for learners’ school registration and placement for Grades 1 and 8.
Parents are notified of the outcome of their applications vis SMS and have to respond within a week. The platform provides an alphabetic list of schools in the Gauteng province and it can handle about 35,000 users in one second. The media reported in early November 2018 that 282 000 applications were made that year and 248 866 had been placed in schools for the academic year of 2019.
