To date, 144 schools have benefited from support from BMW SA. Ntsha-Peu Primary near Shoshanguve recently received a R4 million investment and world-class upgrades. As part of the programme, the school has had a new computer lab installed that can accommodate 80 learners at a time, and, in partnership with the Gauteng Department of Education, has been supplied with always-on internet.
The school will run a robotics and coding program from the centre. In addition, a library has been built in a former classroom, ensuring access to books and a quiet space for reading. To ensure a rounded education for the children, BMW has also funded a multi-sports facility at the school.
The investment underlines BMW Group South Africa’s continued commitment to education and to the community in Soshanguve, where so many BMW Group Plant Rosslyn associates live.
