NIS Sport

The sport programme is extensive; we offer a wide range of sports. 

In order to  provide a full sports programme, NIS has many teachers who are passionate about sport and are keen on helping you grow in the sports offered here at NIS.  Building stronger relationships with our local community, who provide hands-on assistance throughout all sports, is a continual focus of our school. We are lucky to have a large group of parent and community volunteers who  help coach and manage. If you’re new to our NIS sporting whanau and would like to help out, then please let Mr Grant Yarrall know. 

We encourage all students to play a sport - whether it be social or competitive.  We play in both local sports tournaments and are associated with WRISSA for a range of different sports.

We are always on the lookout for more sports, so if you can think of one, let us know and we will look into it.  Please note all sports require a coach and manager to look after players welfare. So, due to numbers, Covid, there may be times where sports may have to be cancelled. Sometimes, due to these factors, they are out of our control.

If you have any questions, please don;’t hesitate to contact us here at school: staff@naenaeint.school.nz with subject Sport in the subject line.
