Eastern Cape Education says unregistered learners should visit its District offices

As the 2019 academic year kicks off, the Eastern Cape Department of Education says it has established systems to address the late learner admissions in the province to ensure a smooth start of academic calendar.

The move by Eastern Cape Department of Education Head of Department (HoD), Themba Kojana, is meant to ensure that all unplaced learners are placed to schools with spaces so that they can start the academic year in class like all other children.

Kojana urged community members and parents not to send unplaced learners to schools, rather directly to District Offices for urgent intervention and help.

"We are aware that some learners have not been placed due to various issues as such parents are moving from school to school looking for space. I urge all our parents and community members to rather go to their local District Offices or Circuit Offices for quick help with admissions," urged Kojana.

Kojana emphasised that these District and Circuit Admission Committees will help ensure that alI learners are placed accordingly.

"We have activated all districts and circuits admission committees to help address this issue across the province. We urge all parents to utilise this route as we believe it has been created to harness the problem", concluded Kojana.
