Whats happening at NISS?

A column highlighting what's happening at NISS from a student's perspective.

Extra curricular activities benefit students by allowing them to express their creativity, to manage stress, to build self confidence, to gain team spirit, to learn how to manage time, and to help overall health. Fortunately at NISS we have a variety of sports and extra curricular activities available for students. Some activities include drama, soccer inter-murals, basketball, volleyball, and gymnastics. The P.E. Department is also looking to start up more sports at NISS and the help of volunteers is needed.

This year’s drama club is run by Susan Beatty. It is in an actual class with occasional meetings at lunch. In January they are doing their own version of Aladdin. More details about the play are to be coming soon. The play is expected to be very enjoyable with a special NISS spin on it. The drama club is a great program for students to express their creativity and to take a break from book work. They have a lot of fun playing games and practicing their acting skills. The drama class is also asking for an exercise bike and/or any donations to the theatre performance group.

Soccer inter-murals recently started on Monday, November 5th. Students interested in playing soccer will create their own teams with friends. Once a team is created, it will play in elimination tournaments against the other teams during lunch hours until there is one team left. Game scores are announced after every game. Soccer inter-murals can be competitive, but remember they are just for fun.

Basketball will be coached by Casey Mork. It will be Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 starting November 7th. They will play against teams from Port Hardy and other schools on Vancouver Island.

Gymnastics is coached by Joy Zwicker. Gymnastics is on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 5:30. You must compete to be a part of the team.

Volley-ball practices three times a week, Tuesday, 6-8pm Wednesday, 7:30-8:30am, Thursday, 7:30-8:30am. It is coached by Shelley Downey.

“If we had more volunteer coaches we’d have a lot more sports teams” said Mr. Mork. Senior girls are looking for a person willing to coach a lacrosse team! So anybody with experience in lacrosse wanting to coach a team please contact the school at 250-956-3394 or email at NISS@sd85.bc.ca.
