The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) is excited to announce that Phase 2 applications under the 2022 Online Admissions will begin on Monday, 13 September 2021 on at 08:00 am and end on Friday, 8 October 2021. Phase 2 will be for parents and guardians with children going to Grade 1 or Grade 8 in the 2022 academic year, but are currently not in a public school in Gauteng.
We are also glad to announce that parents and guardians who were not able to apply on time during Phase 1 for learners in Grade 7 at public schools in Gauteng will be able to apply under Phase 2.
Parents and guardians applying in Phase 2 are urged to prepare the following documentation and ensure that it is all certified and correct:
1. Parent and child ID or passport
2. Refugee Permit
3. Asylum Seeker Permit
4. Permanent Residence Permit
5. Study Permit
6. Your South African Birth Certificate
7. Proof of Home Address
8. Proof of Work Address
9. Latest School Report
10. Clinic Card/Immunization Card (Grade 1 only)
We urge parents and guardians to upload these documents onto the system or submit them at the school(s) they applied to within 7 days of applying. It is also important that parents enter the correct details onto the system when applying.
When Phase 1 applications, officially closed on Friday, 3 September 2021, we had recorded a total of 351 169 applications.
We express our gratitude towards parents and guardians who managed to successfully apply, and the patience they displayed throughout the process. We also wish to thank our entire GDE team who helped make Phase 1 applications a success.
Our team will still be available for assistance during Phase 2 applications on all our social media platforms, our Decentralized Walk-in Centres and our call center on 0800 000 789.
“We have outdone ourselves this year, not just as the Department, but as stakeholders, as parents and as guardians in having made the new two-phased approach a success so far. We wish every parent and guardian applying under Phase 2 the very best and we assure them that our team will be there to assist them every step of the way,” said Gauteng Education MEC Mr Panyaza Lesufi.
