Pingu's Sledge Academy is the first episode of Season 6. It aired on January 3 2005 and was written by David Haworth.
Pingu and his friends Pingo, Pingg and Pongi are out having fun on their sledges, but they are not a patch on the students of the Sledge Academy and leave chaos behind them wherever they go. The Instructor of the Academy is deteremined to change that and suggests to Pingu's dad that they join up too.
When Pingu gets home, his parents are cross with him for his wreckless behaviour and consficate his sledge, much to Pingu's shock. His shock doesn't last too long as his parents tell him that they've signed him up for sledge academy and when he finishes with it, they'll give him back his sledge. Pingu agrees to their terms and he and his friends all attend the lesson in the Academy's offical jackets. It takes time, but they soon learn how to control their sledging and how to maintain them on a regular basis. They complete the course successfully and the Instructor awards them with their diplomas. Pingu's dad is very impressed and the Instructor thinks that they are the finest students he has ever had.
