"All our schools have been identified as designated areas for collection and submission of admission forms.

Parents and legal guardians of qualifying learners are therefore encouraged to immediately collect registration forms from the school nearest to their home, where other siblings are attending or within a feeder zone," said spokesperson, Tidimalo Chuene.

She said completed forms must be returned as soon as possible as admissions will be processed on a first come first served basis, assuming that all other criteria in the admissions guidelines are met.

Please bring the following documents to register a child :

· Birth certificate or acceptable proof of birth date (do not take a baptismal certificate as proof)

· Immunisation card

School management teams have been directed to ensure that the process of collection and return of forms, is managed in line with the Department of Education’s standard operating procedures for the management of Covid-19 in schools.

This means strict adherence to screening, sanitising and social distancing protocols throughout the process

Any formal complaint from parents whose children have not been admitted can be lodged through the nearest circuit offices.

The Department says it will monitor the learner admissions process very closely to ensure that the rights of learners are always protected.
