Social Investment & Responsibility

“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want” – Zig Ziglar

For any country’s success and growth, we need scientists who innovate and research, which leads to job creation. For that to happen, education is key and the department has highlighted Maths, Science and Technology as the main subjects to concentrate on. We make available the latest world class products and CAPS compliant equipment.

It is a proven fact; people learn by doing. We can partner with your organisation in providing resources to communities who most need it. BMS believes reciprocity and currently embarks on its own projects uplifting communities through equipment donations to schools. Some of the schools who have benefitted from our initiatives are: Al-Azhar Primary in Paarl, Bridges of Hope, Habibia Primary, Focussed High School, Langa High School etc.

Other projects we assist with include NGO’s such as Peninsula School Feeding Association. Part of every order’s proceeds goes to the feeding of hungry school children. Other community projects include: Mustadaffin Foundation, Ke-Nako/Believe Projects - involved in Early Childhood Development.

How do we go about it?

If your organization wishes to assist a school(s), we can propose solutions which can include: Mobile Lab Unit, Kits, Equipment, ICT equipment, or a combination of all, in Science, Maths or Technology. Training, monitoring and measuring your impact are all part of the cost. We will meet with you and the proposed done, ascertain the requirements, implement a solution, monitor and measure by checking to ensure the impact of your investment to the school.

How can you or your company get involved?

Education currently attracts 50% of SCI spend in SA. There are tax benefits for companies as well. Simply give us a call or email, one of our sales agents will gladly sit down with your organisation propose and discuss some solutions.

Here we acknowledge our current and past CSI partners: Old Mutual, AVENG, Saficon, Arcelor Mittal Group, Dimension Data and parastatals: PetroSA, ESKOM.

To achieve more and be part of the solution, we need your investment today in our youth for tomorrow’s innovators. Leave a footprint and let you or your company leave a legacy.

Looking at some of the solutions more closely

Kits

Contains all the basic materials, in small amounts, required to conduct experiments that are set in the  curriculum.  It  effectively  addresses  the requirements  of  many  schools  which  do  not have    the    resources    to    conduct    the necessary     experiments.     Teacher     and learner  materials  are  provided.  Easy  to  set up and comes with step by step experiment guide.   They   are   modular,   starting   from grades 4-7, 8-9 and finally 10-12. Parts of kit are   available   separately,   replenishments and breakages.

Mobile Lab Units 

As the cost to develop and maintain a full laboratory is high, a mobile lab unit can be shuttled between classrooms allowing under-resourced schools to conduct experiments teaching science with minimal resources. Equipment can be packed into the mobile lab unit. It is cost-effective and simple to use, with minimal maintenance. The new CAPS curriculum requires teachers to conduct practical experiments, making this a real necessity.

  • - Melamine lockable two door unit
  • -  Partitioned section houses two large containers for clean and waste water
  • -  Gas cylinder situated on shelf
  • - Pump-hand action for water supply at basin, gas outlet on top surface
  • - Mobile with lockable castors for stability
  • - Size: 1200 x 600 x 850mm high, Weight 70kg

Other solutions

We also have a CAPS list of basic requirements for each grade and subject, drawn up with the help of the DOE, which can be provided. The list can be used to replenish or stock the mobile lab unit / kits, otherwise provide a tailor-made solution for a bigger class or a specific learning area. A combination of solutions which include ICT equipment (interactive whiteboards, etc) are also available.
