Extension and Enrichment Club

The E Squared Club is coordinated and run by Mrs Bouwer for Grade 5 – 7 children. Its aim is to provide creative and mental stimulation for our higher order, “out of the box” thinkers (not just the “academic” high achievers.) The Club is meant to enhance the children’s learning experience rather than to advance him/her in any specific way academically. The Club runs after school hours and works on a strictly invitational basis (children are nominated by teachers and assessed by Mrs Bouwer).

Club times:

Tuesdays: Grade 5s 14h15 – 14h45

Wednesdays: Grade 7s 14h15 – 15h00

Thursdays: Grade 6s 14h15 – 15h00

Foundation Phase Chess Club

with Miss C. Mackenzie

Grade 3 pupils who are interested in playing chess are very welcome to join our junior chess club. All boys and girls are very welcome even if they have never played chess before because we will be starting with an introduction to the basic moves of the various pieces during this first term, building up to a full game by the second term.

Chess is a wonderful game for developing mental ability and valuable life skills such as making decisions and planning ahead and we would like to encourage experienced and new players in this grade to join us for an hour of fun.

With Mrs P. Govender

We meet on Tuesday afternoons 14:15 to 15:15. Children who have not been to Chess Club previously and are able to play chess may also attend.

Book club is held every Tuesday from 2.30 to 3.30 and is open from for children from grade 4 to 7.  The aim is to have fun while learning about books.  We do book reviews, read to the members and discuss book related issues.  We also try to improve the children’s imagination by starting with an ice breaker every time.

Book Club members 2018


General Knowledge at EPS has two entities which operate independently.  We have a club and our school teams. (Interschool and Interhouse). Below is a short explanation of each.


We meet every Thursday from 2.30 to 3.30 and is open for children from grade 5 – 7.  We discuss current affairs, which is very popular.  We work through previous General Knowledge question papers in a quiz format and do research using library resources.  We put a lot of emphasis on revision in order to improve retention of information.

Please note that due to demand, we have introduced an application system which works on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.
