** If offers are made by other schools that the parent applied to, the parent will be able to accept another offer

** If that is the only available offer, the learner will be auto-placed at the school that made the offer

5. Will a parent be able to cancel an accepted offer of placement in one school to accept another offer from a different school?
Yes. Parents may wait to accept another offer even after accepting the first offer of placement.

** Placement is based on applicants meeting admission criteria and the capacity of the Grade to admit
** Home address will get priority and if there is still space available the school will place using the other criteria

11. Will I be informed if the school does not take my child?
Schools inform successful parents and if a parent does not get any notification the parents can go to the district to find out
