Over 200 000 students in KZN remain unplaced for the 2022 academic year.
Over 200 000 students in KZN remain unplaced for the 2022 academic year.

Over 200 000 pupils in KZN remain unplaced for the new academic year despite the province’s massive advocacy on application cut-off dates.

The affected pupils are those who will be enrolling in schools for the first time and those leaving their former schools to enrol in new schools from Grade R to Grade 12.

This emerged when the Department of Basic Education briefed the Portfolio Committee on Basic Education this week on its state of preparedness for the 2022 academic year.
