Does the school provide lunch and snacks?

NIST Catering operates the elementary and secondary cafeterias, as well as cafés in the Secondary Building and The Hub. All students have accounts created for them through the NIST Catering Campus Online system. This system can be topped up with funds via credit card or cheque, or by cash through the kiosks on campus.

Parents may choose to purchase a meal plan for elementary students, which includes a light morning snack. Secondary students are able to buy snacks and lunch with either cash or through their NIST Catering accounts.

Can my child be involved in extra-curricular activities (ECAs)?

Yes. NIST offers a wide range of ECAs for students in Years 2 to 13, and a more limited selection is also available for students in Early Years 2 and Year 1. These ECAs usually take place immediately after school, with activities for EY2 and Year 1 running from 1:50 to 2:30 PM, and activities for Year 1 to Year 13 typically running from 2:30 to 3:30 PM.

Times may vary for some ECAs, particularly sports. Additionally, some ECAs–most often those provided by external groups–require an additional fee.
