Pretoria - The second day of online registrations for parents visiting the Lemoshanang Teacher Development Centre in Atteridgeville went like a "well-oiled" machine.
The centre was one of the few that experienced setbacks shortly after Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi switched on the online registration for grades 1 and 8 at 8am yesterday at the the Diepsloot Youth Centre.
While Lesufi and his departmental representatives were hard at work monitoring the process at the centre in Soweto, parents arriving at the Atteridgeville centre were greeted by locked gates.
Some parents huddled together in small groups to try and help each other register using their phones, while other parents complained that they had arrived as early as 5am, only to be told by officials upon arrival at 9am that the system was slow.
Education spokesperson, Steve Mabona, confirmed that there were delays and challenges at the Atteridgeville centre, much like with other areas for officials and parents who were logging on using Wi-Fi.
