The heat is on for the Gauteng Education Department as it rushes to place more than 35 000 learners in Grade 1 and Grade 8 over the next three days.
The automatic placement of learners for the 2023 schooling year will continue until Wednesday, November 30.
However, Gauteng Education MEC Matome Chiloane said 35 897 pupils still needed to be placed. These include 9897 Grade 1 learners and 26 000 Grade 8 learners.
Chiloane assured parents that there was no need to panic, saying that all was “under control” and they were trying their very best to ensure placements were completed by Wednesday.
“So far the process is on track to ensure we place all the applicants,” he said.
