Currently in Johannesburg and surrounds we offer bi weekly/ monthly classes at a number of venues. These classes combine geography, science, history with general knowledge and highly practical activities and experiments (grade 3 to grade 11 equivalents and content). See courses running for examples

Now practical hand projects

All can participate using our new series of practical handwork kits with downloadable lessons. NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE! See course options and shop

How do new practical kits work?

Three introductory topics are offered to start:

  1. The solar system
  2. Modeling Landscapes
  3. Working With Clay

You can purchase a kit containing all materials or assemble your own materials and then subscribe, on the website to a link with the integrated lesson and work plan. As the kids complete a project others will be added for purchase. Topics to follow will build onto the project theme and increase in difficulty and skill application.

Why is it important?

As a highly practical educator, with over 30 years experience, I believe that one of the major deficiencies of the modern education system is the lack of learning by kids, through handwork. This problem is further compounded by a home environment filled with by TV, gaming devices and even outsourced home chores. Today, for the first time in history, kids are expected to develop without almost no handwork activities to develop their full mental potential.

Education Support thus offers an opportunity, through our handwork projects, to encourage kids of all ages to use their hands and minds in doing handwork. We believe that handwork not only stimulates a healthy brain development but encourages: patience, improved concentration span, improved problem solving abilities, lateral thinking, and an overall sense of pride and achievement.


We are a family orientated education support organization offering educational courses, outings and other educational services to parents and their children.

The main theme followed through all courses is to learn geography through science and science through geography
