JOHANNESBURG - Parents have until midnight to apply for Grade 1 and Grade 8 submissions using the Gauteng Education Department's online 2017 registration portal.

"If you apply late, you are inconveniencing your child, which means come January your child will not be in a classroom. Your child will probably start school late February and it makes it even harder for us to allocate educators."
