CHESS CLUB 2019

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

GENERAL KNOWLEDGE CLUB

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.

The club meets every Thursday from 2.30 to 3.30 in the school library.  It is open to children from grades 5 – 7.  We discuss current affairs and encourage the children to bring in articles of interest.  A very popular activity is our weekly gk quiz.  We put a lot of emphasis on revising the question often 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.

INTERSCHOOL/INTERHOUSE GENERAL KNOWLEDGE

Teams are selected on merit.
