PLG Hartbeespoort Academy: Social Science History Project

We wish to commend all our grade 4 pupils on their amazing Social Science History Project. They created a museum of old things and hosted a spectacular display out of these amazing nostalgic items.

The pupils were very intrigued by all these funny, clumsy looking items and the older grown-ups just enjoyed this trip down memory-lane.

Well done on making this academic project a fun experience for all.

PLG Hartbeespoort Academy visit a Herb Farm

Pupils and parents visited the Margaret Roberts herb farm on 8 February 2017.  Upon arrival we all received a bunch of herbs and salt.  Mrs Roberts discussed each herb with us as we added it to our salt.  Each learner made their own braai salt that is healthy and delicious. 

After the talk we all enjoyed ice tea and a scone that contained some of the herbs that we discussed.  We then walked through the herb plantations. 

Thank you to all the parents who helped us with transport.  A special thank you to Mr Mamabolo for the ice lollies that he provided to the children on the trip.

PLG Hartbeespoort Academy is now famous!!

The team at PLG Hartbeespoort Academy were approached by Grounded Media, a production company which is working on a TV show called Bonisanani on SABC 1; which is featured every Sunday at 6h30bam. It is a kid’s faith, culture and religion show. They needed to film short 5 minute dramas and wanted to know if we would be interested in working with them. We jumped at the opportunity and our drama students - Ontha, Ole, Neo, Lebo, Palesa and Adam performed in these episodes.
The school was used as the filming location i.e. the arts and culture classroom, Mr Jansen's house, the boarders kitchen, reception and of course our wonderful fields. A total of 5 episodes will be shot here. The school will be listed in the credits and the school uniform was used in the classroom scenes. PLG Hartbeespoort Academy is now famous!

PLG Schools: Out-reach project!

The Milk and Oats project is a charity drive proudly initiated by PLG Hartbeespoort Academy.  Since the beginning of this school, the students and staff wanted to bless their neighbouring school, Ennis Thabong, with food. Most of Ennis Thabong’s pupils come from homes not able to provide food. In 2009, a food drive started at our school were parents would come together once a month to make sandwiches for pupils at Ennis Thabong. Later, in 2012, we decided that donating Oats and Milk will be a much easier and more practical way to support the food drive. Since then, once every term, we dedicate a day to support this drive - coming together as a school to pray for Ennis Thabong and to gather then send off all the Milk and Oats that every student donated.
