The provincial education department has urged parents not to wait until the last minute to apply for school places.

In the first minute of the department of education’s (GDE) online school admission system 10 000 success application have been completed.

“We are very pleased and we are monitoring the system and are confident that we will be able to handle the 30 000 applications per minute,” GDE spokesperson Steve Mabona said at the Atteridgeville Community Centre on Monday.

However, Mabona requested parents not to wait until the last minute to apply for school places.

“It’s a very important learning tool for us, it doesn’t discriminate and because it’s linked to the Home Affairs system it knows identity numbers,” Gauteng MEC of education Panyaza Lesufi said after assisting a parent to apply.
