Activities


'The NIS Activities and Events' support the vision and mission of the school. Although one of the main aims of the school is that of academic achievement, we are committed to our belief in the value of a holistic educational experience, which we believe supports and enhances our academic aims.

We view 'The NIS Activities and Events' as an integral part of the NIS educational experience. The NIS Activities and Events' programs provide students with the opportunities to develop their own talents, interests and aspirations.


These aspects of school life also foster and nurture the personal and social development through the exposure to teamwork, sportsmanship, winning and losing, and hard work. Through immersion in the NIS Activities and Events programs, students develop self-discipline, build self-confidence and develop skills to handle competitive situations. Participation in activities teaches valuable lessons that cannot be learned in a regular class routine.
