JOHANNESBURG - The Gauteng Education Department has once again appealed to parents of grade 1 and 8 pupils to use this period to apply for the 2018 academic year before it's too late.

Registration opened earlier in May and will close on 12 June.

The department says it has received over 300,000 applications so far.

Spokesperson Steve Mabona says from this weekend, some schools in Soweto and Mohlakeng will open to allow parents an opportunity to register.

“There are schools that we’ve identified and availed so people can come and apply without any hesitations.”
