Activities & Sports
BIS-NY’s athletic programme is designed to help players improve and master various skills while developing good sportsmanship, discipline, cooperation and leadership. Other key elements of our athletic programme involve mental focus, positive thinking, teamwork, and game strategy.
It is very important in the early years of formal education to give pupils a sense of the well-being and fulfilment that comes from both physical exercise and participation in the arts.
Our pupils swim once a week in addition to their physical education lessons. Lessons can take place on-site and may take advantage of the indoor facilities of the Hunter College Brookdale gym.
Games is weekly, when all children from Year 1 upwards visit the games fields learning team sports skills, including cricket, flag rugby and rounders! Our track & field and swim teams regularly participate in local and regional competitions.
All students participate in annual sporting events including Sports Day and our Swim Gala, which parents are encouraged to attend.
