The Mpumalanga Department of Education takes this time to make a clarion call to all parents to register their children of school going age for the 2020 school year from 02 May 2019 to 30 August 2019.

Early registration of learners enable schools to plan in advance and to commence with teaching and learning on the first day of school re-opening.

Parents are required by law to produce the following documents as requirements for registration:
• An application form from the school;
• Official birth certificate of the child;
• Proof of immunization;
• A transfer card if a learner transfers from one public school to another;

Should a parent experience a problem regarding the registration of a child to a school, he/she should request a written explanation from the principal or contact the nearest circuit office for assistance or call the departmental toll free line at 0800 203 116 during office hours.
