NIS provides opportunities for all students to participate in citizenship, community service, sport and co-curricular activities which are central to providing a holistic education. These experiences provide invaluable opportunities for students to develop social, recreational, creativity and citizenship skills which are essential for a balanced education.

We provide this holistic education through both our academic programme and our co-curricular activities.

Specifically, our goals in this regard are to encourage students to:

  • Focus on character formation and develop leadership skills
  • Strive for excellence by cooperating with team members
  • Show patriotism and loyalty to the school
  • Gain knowledge and acquire skills that will enable them to experience success in future recreational and athletic endeavors

The co-curricular programme consists of a combination of activities organised by our own staff members and programmes which are conducted by external instructors who charge a nominal fee.

Nilai International School Deli Menu

NIS adheres to nutritional standards and each child has the opportunity to have 2 portions from a selection of vegetables and fruits with their meal. Additional second helpings are encouraged. Daily, students in NIS learn to make healthy choices of either an oriental or a western lunch.

To maintain a high level of food cleanliness, all food service staff possesses a clearance in their medical certificate. Special emphasis is placed on proper attire and frequent hand washing.

To ensure menus are “student friendly”, the school authority and teachers on duty often do spot checks, receiving feedbacks on the food served. Our teachers feed the primary children who are slow with their food; frequently coaxing them to eat up the vegetables and fruits. Currently, SHF Catering (M) Sdn Bhd operates our Cafeteria as well as those of some other International Schools.
