Plett Rage festival organiser says most matrics party responsibly

Organisers of the annual Matric Rage festival in Plettenberg Bay say revellers will be enjoying themselves in a "controlled environment".

Ronen Klugman, the festival spokesperson at Plett Rage, says most students party responsibly during the annual event.

On Monday, the majority of matric candidates wrote their final papers and ushered in their freedom.

Klugman says he's seen a big change in student behaviour over the 19 years he's been involved in the event.

He explains that the festival venues have various security measures in place.

In addition, security companies, law enforcement agencies and volunteers will join forces to ensure safety in the rest of the town.

Meanwhile, Western Cape Education MEC Debbie Shafer has urged matric candidates to celebrate responsibly and exercise moderation.

The formal party programme takes place between November 30 to December 7.

The town itself is kind of locked down in terms of safety and security.

We don't have many incidents of excessive substance abuse.

The students behave brilliantly, engage wonderfully as a unit and generally respect each other. They deserve more credit.
