Extra Curricular Activities (ECAs)

Primary ECAs

Every year, the Educational Services’ ECA department works with faculty and specialist teachers /coaches /instructors to provide a wide array of after school activities. These ECAs are offered to children across all three sections: British Section, French Section, and German Section.

These programmes are designed to provide opportunities for the children to try out new activities or develop existing skills and learning in their fields of interest. The various ECAs cover such areas as: arts and crafts, dance, music, sport, language, general interest hobbies, academic skills and local culture.

For the full list of activities for the coming academic year please see the Annual EPC ECA Schedule Brochure (Posting Date: July 23rd, 2020).

Many of these activities are very popular and consequently over-subscribed. We will try to ensure that each participant has a chance to take part in the activities they are interested in. We use an enrolment system that allocates priorities based around each student’s preferences.

For all the information on how to enroll your child onto the ECA programmes and full, in depth information on all the workings of the ECA programme, please see the ECA Charter.

If you have any questions not covered by the Annual Schedule Brochure or the ECA Charter, please contact the ECA department, located next to the Student Services Office.

Secondary ECAs


At the Secondary campus, faculty organise a vast variety of after-school ECAs, with each teacher contributing their time and effort to provide these for the benefit of the students. At the start of the new academic year, the schedule of ECAs is presented to the students for them to choose which activities they wish to attend, based on their interests and availability. The TESmile online system is used for students to sign up. This is on a 'first come, first served' basis.

These programmes are designed to provide opportunities for the students to try out new activities or develop existing skills and learning in their fields of interest. The various ECAs cover such areas as: arts and crafts, dance, music, sport, general interest hobbies, academic skills and local culture. 

At the secondary level, participation in sports includes the opportunity to compete against other schools in each age level. The annual calendar is split into four seasons, with a different sport offered in each season; volleyball, softball, football, basketball. The Music Department offers individual peripatetic lessons, as well as the opportunity to join various music groups, from orchestra to choir and other ensemble groups; all of which support the school with a variety of performances both within and outside of school.

There are many other ECAs on offer that are for fun or general interest, such as Model United Nations, Roots and Shoots Gardening Club, Chess, Chinese Drumming, Survival Cooking, Classics Club, TABITHA, Drama, Book Club, Golf, and Table Tennis, to name but a few.

Though the ECAs are chosen by the students themselves, it is understood that by signing up, students are making a commitment to attend and participate fully and actively. ECAs can only be successful when students make the proper commitment of time and effort in the same way the teachers offer theirs.
