The Gr R facility at Colin Mann School is a registered GDE facility, but finances are privately managed. Applications for Gr R will commence at the same time as the Gr 1 applications, the year prior to enrolment. These dates will be released by the GDE and differ on a yearly basis. The School Governing Body considers each application and makes the final decision. Due to the fact that the Gr R finances are run privately, no school fee subsidies are available in Gr R.
Gr 1 Enrolment
The GDE is continuing with the online application system for 2023. All parents/guardians interested in applying for Gr 1 in 2023 must apply online at http//: www.gdeadmissions.gov.za. Only applications that have been submitted online will be considered.
Please note that an application is NOT an acceptance. Once the parent/guardian has applied online, all the required documentation must be submitted to the school within the allotted time frame stipulated. Failure to do so may result in the application becoming null and void. All documentation submitted must be certified as true copies. The school is not able to make copies for parents/guardians.
- A certified copy of the birth certificate.
- A certified copy of the parent’s identity document.
- A certified copy of proof of immunization against polio, measles, tuberculosis, diphtheria, tetanus and Hepatitis B.
- Proof of residence/work e.g. water and lights account.
- Proof of sibling relationship.
Colin Mann School will only accept a Municipal Lights and Water account as proof of residence. Should a parent/guardian be renting a property, a legal lease from a registered letting agency or estate agency will be accepted as proof of residence. A downloaded lease (E.g. Horters) will not be accepted as proof of residence and neither will an affidavit from the SAPS or the landlord be accepted.
Any fraudulent documentation handed in will result in the application being disqualified and the child will not be accepted at the school. Should the School Governing Body find a document to be fraudulent, legal proceedings may be instituted against the person who submitted the application.
Grade 2 to Grade 7
The Gauteng Department of Education sets the policy for enrolment at Colin Mann School for Grade 1 – Gr 7. As per the current policy, application for enrolment opens as per guidelines set by the GDE. The GDE determines how many learners the school may accept. An application for admission is divided into the following waiting lists:
Placement of applications will be based on the following admissions criteria, ranked in the order outlined below:
1st – Home address closest to the school within feeder zone (WA1)
2nd – Sibling at the school (WA2)
3rd – Work address within the feeder zone (WA3)
4th – Home address beyond 30km of the school (WA4)
Placement will be prioritized at the school closest to the parent’s home address.
The waiting lists are submitted to the GDE District Office for ratification. Once the lists have been signed off by the official at the District Office, parents are notified as to whether their application has been successful or not.
