Please note that to facilitate the adjudication process, events are scheduled according to the participants’ grade (e.g. it does not make sense to schedule a Gr R participant with a group of Gr. 6 learners). For this reason and in the interest of the participant, we will be reluctant to allow any rescheduling of events.

We are doing our best to accommodate all requests that were submitted in advance. Should you have any new request in this regard, you are requested to mail your request to, but please note that given the particular demands of this competition, we cannot give any guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all requests.
