Plett Rage 2021 – Everything You Need to Know

Celebrating the completion of school is a tradition that can be seen all around the world. It is a rite of passage, a transition where matriculants enter adulthood.
Plett Rage has become synonymous with this tradition within South Africa, as the icons of Matric year-end-celebrations have adopted the very best COVID-19 precautions available and believe that life should not be put on hold any longer.
