The Mpumalanga Education Department says schools are ready for the start of the 2018 academic year.
MEC, Reginah Mhaule says all learning material including top up text-books were sent to schools last year.
According to Mhaule, some learners in urban schools are still on the waiting list for placements.
However, Mhaule is confident that everything will go well on the first day.
In the Western Cape, more than a million learners are expected to arrive at schools across the province.
The provincial Education Department says 11 000 learners are still to be placed at schools.
MEC, Debbie Schafer will visit Levana Primary, in Lavender Hill, to meet and interact with teachers, learners and parents.
Earlier, MEC Panyaza Lesufi officially opened the newly-constructed Everest Primary School in Newclare, Johannesburg.
The former asbestos school was rebuilt at a cost of R90-million. Everest Primary is one of 29 schools in Gauteng that were earmarked for replacement by the province’s Education Department because they are made of asbestos, material that could have a detrimental effect on one’s health.
However, nearly 30 000 learners are yet to be placed at the Gauteng’s public schools.
