ECAs

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
– William Durant

 

True growth requires stretching your boundaries and experiencing the unfamiliar. NIST encourages all students to push beyond their limits through the Extra-Curricular Activities (ECAs) Programme, which offers more than 300 activities in areas as diverse as sports, drama, music, art, technology, academics, language, and social and environmental activism.

The diversity of activities encourages students to excel by challenging themselves, and growing both as individuals and as a part of a whole. This affirmative approach motivates them to see failure as something not to be avoided, but rather to be used as a learning experience.

Through their experiences in extra-curricular activities, children learn that success in life is not measured by awards or trophies, but through the positive impact we have on those around us.

 

Early Years & Year 1 Programmes

Even younger students at NIST receive the opportunity to take part in activities outside of the regular schedule, and we offer a variety of age-appropriate, engaging ECAs designed to build foundational skills. These range from basic sports such as gymnastics, swimming, golf and tennis; to arts classes featuring music & movement, arts & crafts and cooking; to more specialized programmes such as yoga, the Wacky Science Club and Construction Club. The catalogue of ECAs on offer can be viewed online in Veracross, our student information system.

What ECAs Are Offered at NIST?

Students may select from a range of activities based on the time of year, and their ages, schedules and interests. NIST structures the ECA programme in three sessions:

  • Session 1: September to November
  • Session 2: November to February
  • Session 3: February to June

This approach enables students to experiment with different activities, and discover new abilities and interests. Prior to each session, a catalogue is released with a full list of available activities..
