b.rain is committed to helping learners grow into the future leaders of South Africa, and has created an innovative system for disadvantaged schools supported by the Pick n Pay Education Foundation and Woolworths MySchool Programme.

SchoolTree is a School Management System (SMS) with three unique aspects:

  1. SMS EDGE is a comprehensive database that stores all information about learners, from personal details like home address and siblings, to classes and extracurricular activities, as well as additional information such as allergies or medications learners need to take during school hours. EDGE was developed by Massey University in New Zealand.
  2. The Learning Management System (LMS) runs the school planning, controlling timetables, curriculum, communication, assessments results and even the school’s social media. LMS was developed by a Canadian company.
  3. The final piece of the puzzle is a Xero add-on to run finances and reporting.
