When registrations were counted it soon emerged that there wouldn't be sufficient places. The authorities then decided to set up classes in sixteen new locations creating over a thousand extra places.
Some of these classrooms are not yet ready.
Robert Voorhamme: "For a short while the children and their teacher will be accommodated in a neighbouring school. The parents have been informed."
The Antwerp authorities say that sufficient teachers have been found to teach all the new classes starting 3 September.
