Ensure your child is happy
We understand every parent wants their children to be happy in their school environment. That's why we invite your child to come and spend a week with us. Your child will attend usual school activities while enjoying a fun-filled week. Then they can decide whether we are a good fit.
Parents are more than welcome to come and chat with our team members as well as take a look around our school.
“We joined the Poplar family nearly three years ago. I say family as Poplar Academy is warm, nurturing and welcoming. The teachers are competent, supportive, yet firm. While children are encouraged to express their individualism and creativity, there is a healthy balance of discipline. The school is regularly maintained and upgraded.
We believe our girls are getting a good education as they are thriving academically and are developing emotionally.”

“Poplar has been our children’s home away from home for the past 7 years. Poplar lives up to being ” Simply Different”. More than school, more learner orientated than curriculum based, compassionate and responsive. The curriculum was never presented as an overwhelming or intimidating mass of information. Fun was always included in the calendar to include community involvement and socializing.
We have seen our girls blossom at school. Every parent’s wish!”
