ONLINE learner admissions for the 2023 school year will begin on May 23 for grades R, 1 and 8.

Northern Cape Department of Education spokesperson Geoffrey van der Merwe on Wednesday encouraged parents and legal guardians to enrol their children as soon as possible.

“The Northern Cape Department of Education (NCDoE) will open the 2023 online learner admissions from May 23 at 9am until June 20 at midnight, only for grades R, 1 and 8 applications. Parents and legal guardians can apply directly to schools for admission and placements for all other grades,” said Van der Merwe.

Parents must log on to the NCDoE online learner admissions website at www.ncdoeadmissions.org to register and apply.

Van der Merwe added that documents including a copy of a South African parent or legal guardians’ identify document or a sworn affidavit in the absence of an ID document and proof of address, such as a municipal account or lease agreement, had to be submitted within seven days after making an application.

“The child’s birth certificate or an affidavit or a sworn statement, clinic card or proof of immunisation for Grade R and 1 and the most recent Grade 7 learner progress report must also be submitted.”

Van der Merwe said that non-South African citizens are required to submit a valid study permit/asylum seeker or refugee permit, temporary or permanent residence issued by the Department of Home Affairs.

“Parents or legal guardians must submit a passport/ asylum seeker/ refugee permit/ temporary or permanent residence issued by the Department of Home Affairs.

“Proof of home address such as a municipal account in the name of the parent with the home address used during application or a legal lease agreement between the tenant and the owner of the property or landlord must also be provided.

“Proof of immunisation for Grade R and 1 and the most recent Grade 7 learner progress report must be submitted.”

Van der Merwe stated that all the applications would be considered and recommended.

“The successful applications will be determined by whether the applicant already has a sibling attending the school of application in the year of submission and if they reside in the same suburb where the school is situated and if the parent or guardian is an employee of the school.”

He added that if any places remain once applicants were placed, other applicants would be offered space according to the order of their position on the list.

“The above-mentioned directives with regard to the criteria shall not apply to special schools, technical schools, schools of skill or industrial schools.”
