Parklands College

We provide quality education from Pre-Primary to Grade 12.

The privilege of parenthood brings with it the responsibility of planning for the future of our children. Difficult decisions must often be made, with the only guideline being the fact that whatever choices we make, our children deserve only the best. At home, we ensure that the values we instil equip them for the future. It is, however, the time they spend with others – educators and friends that concern us most, for they are beyond our control.

This is why the choice of a place or learning is possibly the most important decision any parent can make, as this decision will ultimately affect a learner’s ability to succeed in life. At Parklands College, we offer complete peace of mind, not only preparing the child academically but also emotionally, socially, morally and physically, in preparation for life’s challenges.

Thelema Wine Vineyards

Thelema Mountain Vineyards is a family-run farm situated at on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain. Gyles Webb and his wife’s family bought Thelema, a charming dilapidated fruit farm, in 1983. Fruit orchards were pulled out and vines were planted. It wasn’t long before the romantic tale of a run-down old fruit farm became the success story of an avant-garde winery. By the mid 90′s Thelema’s wines sold out within a month after release, making it one of the most sought-after wine estates in South Africa.

The vineyards are situated at the top of the Helshoogte Pass with elevations that range between 370 to 480 meters above sea level. The high altitude and the deep red soils are ideal for premium quality wine grape production, resulting in flavourful, flamboyant, complex and long-lasting wines with a distinctive South African character.

Sir Juice

It all started a long time ago in a small factory in the Joburg CBD.... in 1985 to be exact. Since then a lot has happened. Sir Juice has been bought, sold, merged and finally un-merged. Today our company is a totally independent entity owned by three brothers from Kwazulu Natal and a lovely lady named Vijay Loosen. We supply most of the top restaurants, hotels and coffee shops in South Africa with that deliciously premium fruit juice that you usually only find in good restaurants. Our blending plants in Durban, Joburg and Cape Town also serve as factory shops and in the last couple of years we have started selling our juice in stores too.

The three Baker brothers have a long history of Entrepreneurial exploits ranging from butcheries, to Southern Style chicken shops, to gourmet food delivered to your home and the likes. None of these felt quite right and the humble Bakers always knew they were destined for greener pastures. It wasn’t always easy and the winds of fate often took their toll but the Baker brothers came to realise that if they tilted their hats the wind wouldn’t blow them off so easily. Soon after that they started their own fruit juice company.

Steven Johnson Cars

Steven Johnson Cars was established in 1983 in a small open car lot in Loop Street Cape Town. Steven's father Graham owned the workshop, Johnson & Du Plessis Motors, which was adjacent to the car lot in Loop Street.Although the cars that we dealt with at that time were at the cheaper end of the market, each and every one was carefully checked, prepared and serviced in our own workshop.

The standard has carried through till today. All vehicles on the floor are open to any mechanical test and all are covered by our own 30 day or 1500km guarantee which covers the car from front to rear. We also place high emphasis on customer satisfaction and every effort is made to solve any after sales service query.From Loop Street we moved to a showroom in Buitenchracht Street, Cape Town for 8 years and then to a bigger showroom in Roeland Street for a further 8 years. Since January 2002 we have put down our roots in Marine Drive, Paarden Eiland which has proven to be an excellent location and very central for accessibility.
