  63. Mmathapelo Mokena

    I have applied for my child in 2 schools around Alberton and was offered space in a school I did not apply to because of my personal reasons. I rejected the offer and yesterday I received an sms stating that if a child is not placed we must apply to schools with openings. How do I do that if the system is not even accepting my logins? I struggled connecting from last night website stating that the site cannot be reached. The system seems to be unfair somehow as I do not understand why the offer was made at a school I did not apply to and the status on the other two just says the application is in process. How do kids get placed? I need help as this is frustrating not knowing where the child should go beginning of the new year. Can we be assisted?
