Best Wishes to the Class of 2019

On behalf of the Mpumalanga Department of Education, I would like to extend my best wishes to the Class of 2019 as they continue writing their final examinations.

All your years of studying and preparations have been a steady build up to this point.

As you approach the final stages of this twelve-year educational journey, it is important that you apply even greater effort in preparing for these examinations.

We wish to assure everyone that will be sitting for the 2019 National Senior Certificate examination that we are behind you all the way – our support is guaranteed.

These examinations are not intended to put undue pressure and create anxieties, but they are simply the symbolic pinnacle of the hard work that goes into fashioning a finished product.

You have been equipped to make a mark in your final examinations throughout the year.

Those morning , weekend, afternoon , winter and spring classes you attended are about to pay off.

Time management must be your top priority now. Ensure that each section is given the necessary time it deserves so that you are able to complete all your questions on time.

Study all prescribed content in each subject, and ensure that you go through previous examination papers, as this exercise will guarantee that you are familiar with the question paper.

In the examination room, make use of the period that the invigilators provide for you to go through the examination paper as this will enable you to understand all instructions, and what is expected of you.

Your teachers, principals, school governing bodies and parents will continue to support you to ensure that the conditions for preparation and study are conducive.

Please use the remaining time wisely to strengthen any areas of weakness as well as to go through revisions.

Remember that YOU CAN, you are ABLE, and you are GIFTED.

The Mpumalanga Department of Education wishes you the best on your 2019 Grade 12 examinations

Admission of Learners for 2020

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;
• The last report card issued by the previous school.

No learner can be refused admission on the basis that his/her parents are unable to pay school fees.

Learners with special disabilities must also be admitted to schools in line with the dictates of White Paper No 6.

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.
