The Government announced that this year they can only accommodate 24 246 for Form 1 Boarding places this year yet there are 300 000 children seeking the same place.

With that limited number of places, the GOVERNMENT has opened online applications for 2018 Form One boarding school places with limited places on offer. Parents and guardians can start applying online today for their children intending to go to boarding school next year. The government introduced online applications last year after realising that parents were being shortchanged by some schools.

The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education successfully launched (EMAP) Electronic Ministry’s Application Platform for Form One boarding places enrolment in 2016. The advantages of using the platform among others include time efficiency, corruption minimisation, zero registration cost and convenience of applying online safety and securely without leaving the comfort of your home. Parents/guardians who wish to send their children to boarding schools are advised to start applying through the platform (www.emap.co.zw) with effect from Monday, November 13, 2007,” reads the ministry’s statement. There is a vast gap between the demand for boarding places and the number of boarding places available in the country. The total number of Form One boarding places available for 2018 is 24 246 and the potential number of applications is 367 629.”

“Enrolment by school heads will only start when the Grade 7 results are published by Zimsec. Successful applicants will be notified through short message service (SMS) by the representative school heads,” reads the ministry’s statement.

Please note: An applicant can only apply at five schools and once offered a place in one of the schools, they will not be considered at the other schools.
