In the pursuit of creating balanced lifestyles, NIS provides opportunities for students to participate in a range of activities. The school believes that activities are an integral part of the overall education process. Our programmes aim to provide students with opportunities to cultivate and enrich existing skills, explore new areas of interest and to grow physically, socially and cognitively, and adjust to life in China. We seek to offer a broad range of activities over the course of the school year in an effort to cater to the varied interests of our students.
