Activities in Primary and Secondary School

Each Student Activity is open to a specified range of grades.

In Primary School, activities follow four 7-week cycles. The Primary School choir is an exception, which runs the whole year in preparation for performances at NIS and in our community. Student Activities are divided into Sports & Movement, Arts & Crafts, Life Skills & Games and Performing Arts.

There is a range of activities for Secondary students to get involved in - from Orchestra to MUN to Student-Led Hip Hop Dance to Yearbook. These activities can run for a cycle, a whole semester, or an entire academic year.

Most NIS activities are offered after school, but some take place during lunch. Visit our different Activities programmes to learn more.
