It’s an opportunity for all our students, from Early Years to rising Grade 11s, to witness and be a special part of the culmination of our graduates’ learning journey at NIS.
Having designed and built their robots from the ground up, our students have learned how to create the code that controls the sensors and motors of their robot, giving it the ability to perform its tasks completely autonomously. The culmination of the robotics class for Grade 9 is the BattleBots competition, where students have drawn on everything they have learned throughout the unit, to build and program a robot to compete in a Robo-Battle challenge.
It was our second Move-a-thon event, where every student from Pre-K to Grade 11 came together for one of our biggest school House event challenges of the year – to take on our outdoor track for 25 minutes alongside their peers.

In total, our school ran or walked 816km!
