PLG Mellow Oaks Academy opens on 13 January 2016

On Wednesday, 13 January 2016, PLG Mellow Oaks Academy opened its doors as a school for the first time at 07h25. This was symbolised by a bell-ringing ceremony, with all learners participating, as well as a ribbon cutting ceremony. The air buzzed with excitement by all present, including parents, 180 learners, teachers, admin staff and the Headmaster of the school, Mr Lance Duffield.

The PLG Group acquired the property, Mellow Oaks wedding venue, last year August and transformed it into the school. The school will be offering from Pre-Primary to Grade 9 in 2016. In 2017, Grade 10 will be offered and thereafter Grade 11 & 12. PLG schools follow the National Curriculum, namely the CAPS syllabus. At the senior level, the school will primarily teach the Independent Examination Board (IEB) Curriculum. Classes remain small at 25 learners per classroom and the primary instruction is in English. The ethos of the school encompasses Christian mores.

Heritage Day celebrations at PLG Ballito Academy

This Heritage Day news snippet and photo was supplied by the head of PLG Ballito Academy, Mr. Ryan Doig.

One of the highlights of the Term was undoubtedly our Heritage Day celebrations at PLG Ballito Academy and I have truly never worked at a school where the children embraced their different and diverse cultural heritage as passionately as our children!

We can be truly proud to be South African – a nation where our youth can most certainly show us how easily so many different cultures can be peacefully celebrated, accepted and embraced by all.
