NIS Students Get Active with Move-a-thon! 

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. This year’s Move-a-thon supported two related charities: We Walk With You Parkinson’s foundation and the Pechersk School International as part of our ongoing drive to help achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. In total, our school ran or walked 816km!  

“Now more than ever, our kids need to build a habit of and positive relationship with exercise,” said Mr. Lee Mayes, Physical Education Teacher at NIS. “Understanding from an early age the benefits of regular exercise and how good it can make us feel, is vital to long-term physical and mental health.”

It was a great opportunity for our our students to recognise the importance of movement and experience the spirit of working for a good cause as a community. Take a look at photo highlights of the event below.
