Step-by-step process on how to register for Grade 1 – 8 online

The online application system for Grade 1 and 8 learners opened on Monday, with minor technical glitches.

In a radio interview in the morning, the MEC of education in the province Panyaza Lesufi said parents reported difficulties in accessing the site.

“The problem was resolved and everyone can now access the online application system.”

The applications will close on 28 May.

Lesufi urged parents to register their children as soon as possible.

Here’s the step-by-step guide on how to register online:

Visit www.gdeadmissions.gov.za to apply.

The department of education recommended the use of Google Chrome, as was found to be faster than other browsers.

A parent can apply for a maximum of five schools per learner using the following options for Grade 1:

1. Home address

2. Work address

3. Sibling

4. School of choice

For Grade 8, a parent can apply using the following options:

1. Home address

2. Work address

3. Sibling at school (the sibling should not be in Grade 7 or Grade 12 in the current academic year)

4. Previous school

5. School of choice

6. Schools of focussed learning/school of specialisation.

Once logged on to the online system, follow these steps:

Step 1: fill in the details of the parent.

Step 2: fill in the learner’s details.

Step 3: choose a school using any of the options listed above.

Once an application is successful, the parent will receive an SMS. Parents are then required to submit the required documents within seven days to each of the schools, Lesufi said.

For Grade 1, the following documents should be submitted to all the schools where applications were made:

• Parents’ ID document or legal guardian ID

• Learner’s birth certificate

• Proof of home address or proof of work address

• Clinic/immunisation card

For Grade 8, the following documents must be submitted:

• Parent’s ID document or legal guardian’s ID

• Learner’s birth certificate

• Proof of home address or proof of work address

• Report card

Upon submission of documents, parents must sign a register to indicate that documents were submitted and receive a confirmation of submission of documents received.
