Grades 7 – 9 can now sign up on veracross for SCISAC Soccer. Practices are on Mondays and Wednesdays 4.20 – 5.50pm. The tournament will be here at NIS on 2 – 4 November. Practices start next Monday!!


Sports coaching next year

Any staff member who might be interested in coaching a sport next year, or being an assistant coach, please email me or come to talk to me to find out more. You do not need to have coaching experience. If you are unsure if it is right for you, come and have a chat.

Athletics Feedback

Gr4 – 12 Students, please could you give us some feedback on the Athletics Program so we can continue to make it better. It does not matter if you took part in a sport this year or not, your feedback would be really appreciated. It will only take a few minutes. Click on this link to take the survey:


Outdoor balls

It is great that so many students are playing out on the fields. There are a number of balls (football, rugby, basketball) that you can play with. To help everyone to find the ball of their choice (and to stop balls being left in the far flung corners of the school), please put the ball back into the basket when you have finished with it. Your friends and other students will appreciate your thoughtfulness!


You may have noticed that we have 2 new outdoor table tennis tables outside the gym entrance. These are for everyone to enjoy. Please take care of the tables, the bats and the balls. We have a limited supply of bats and balls so please put them back in the box when you are finished playing so the next people can enjoy playing too.

Farewell Shaquille

Our Athletics Intern, Shaquille Mac-Intosh, has been here for 10 weeks and today is his last day!! He will be working at the MYP/DP Athletics Day all day today, if you get the chance, please say goodbye to him.

We would like to thank Shaquille for all his work over the past 10 weeks and we wish him all the very best for the rest of his studies in Amsterdam.
