In an interview with The Chronicle, Deputy Minister of Primary and Secondary Education Edgar Moyo said 56 out of 258 boarding secondary schools in the country still have vacancies for Form One.

Moyo also said online applications closed on December 21 and parents whose children are yet to secure places should go to the remaining schools and physically apply. Moyo said parents can first call provincial call centres where they can be advised on schools with places in their respective provinces. He said the 56 schools are left with around 1 000 places. He added that the remaining schools will continue to enrol until schools open on Tuesday. Said Moyo:

We have 258 secondary boarding schools in the country and 202 are already full with only 56 still enrolling. There were 24 231 vacancies for Form Ones and 22 941 have been taken. The online application was meant to reduce expenses of travelling to schools but unfortunately some parents could not secure places on time.

Schools with places include Eveline Girls High, Founders, Gifford, Milton and Townsend High schools in Bulawayo, Gloag Secondary in Bubi, Fatima Secondary School in Lupane, Hlangabeza Secondary School in Nkayi, Matopo High School in Matobo, JZ Moyo High School in Insiza, Masase and Musume secondary schools in Mberengwa.
