“Bryanston High School has been doing the Business Game for many years with the Grade 9’s and they thoroughly enjoy it. The competitive nature of the game amongst the groups is amazing and they learn a lot from taking part about running a business. Morne delivers a fantastic experience for the students year after year”
Andy Crighton – Bryanston High, Gauteng
“This has been a most worthwhile exercise. It continues to give enjoyment in a very structured education program. Learners express delight on completion and even the academically handicapped achieve a measure of success. Class camaraderie is strengthened and critical thinking is encouraged. It is a very beneficial entrepreneurial activity supported by the EMS educators at Fairmont.”
Fairmont High School, Cape Town – Tracy Simmonds
“We had the privilege of having Banango Traders at our school today for the Grade 7 and 8 EMS students. I highly recommend Morne and his team. They were exceptional with the students and our Grade 7 and 8 students thoroughly enjoyed the simulation game. It brought business to life especially with the competition between groups trying to win the game.”

“Banango was ‘n fees. Ek het dit so baie geniet om saam te werk om ons besigheid goed te laat verloop. Dit was ‘n interessante dag gewees vir my en ek wens ek kon nog ‘n geleentheid kry. Die tannie wat dit aangebied het was baie vriendelik en sy het dit nog lekkerder gemaak!”
“Gister was sommer hope pret! Die aanbieding veral was uitstekend en baie interessant. Inligting was op ‘n vriendelike wyse oorgedra en op so ‘n maniet gestel dat dit maklik is om te onthou. Die oefeninge en die risiko’s was baie lekker gewees en het ons aandag deur die hele dag behou.”
“Hierdie het my ‘n nuwe uitkyk op besigheid gegee. Al die konsepte en definisies het uiteindelik in fokus gekom in ‘n lewendige manier. Ek het dit geniet en daaruit geleer!”
“Danksy Banango kan ek uiteindelik verstaan waaroor besigheidsbestuur gaan en hoe dit werk. Dit was ‘n ongelooflike ervaring en ek wil dit sommer gou weer doen.
“Banango was vir my ‘n ongelooflike belewenis. Ek het heelwat meer van my mede gr9’s geleer en selfs baie lekker gesels met iemand waarmee ek nog nooit gesels het nie. Ek het baie nuwe dinge geleer en ook nuwe denkwyses toegepas. Wat ‘n wonderlike ervaring.”

“The Banango Traders Simulation is a fantastic simulation to introduce learners the concepts of Companies, financial information and entrepreneurship outside the classroom. It is a group effort and everybody in the group is involved and all learners are contributing. The game often shows it is not just the “clever” kids that win the game but learners who is willing to take risks and also have entrepreneurial skills. Learners experience the result of their decisions through the game. Excellent learning experience and a huge challenge to see the effect of their decisions. Also very competitive which teaches the learners at a young age how competitive life really is. Excellent facilitator and very well organised. Learners LOVE it!! “

“The JSF, Gr 12 Bus (Banangoes) Programme is an excellent opportunity for pupils to engage in revision of theory learned in a practical, fun environment, and at the same time provide an easy and effective portfolio piece in IEB schools.
The material is excellent and is well presented, making it a wonderful all round experience.”
Neil Hartzenberg – Kingswood College, Grahamstown
Banango’s Traders is an excellent simulation day to do with any grade group. It gives students real-life exposure which will benefit them in the long-run. My Grade 12s at Maragon Mooikloof, absolutely loved it and they performed very well in the task. I would recommend it to any school or institution.
Lindré Janse van Rensburg – Maragon Mooikloof, Gauteng
Banango has made assessment fun for the learners. Creativity has been tested with cooperation in teamwork and built on the individual subject knowledge of each learner. Learners find Banango as a challenge they can look forward too.
