The 19 children who made up the NIS team first assembled for training just two months ago and have been training intensively twice per week from 06:45 to 07:15 in the school pool. Their victory at the competition, which was held at the Australian International School (AIS), owed so much to the commitment and hard work of the children themselves but also of the NIS staff who were involved, most notably Ms. Peppy, Mr. Joris and Coach Felipe, and with parent support from Ms. Ayu and Ms. Elizabeth
The students at NIS Jakarta are fortunate to be able to train in their own pool on the school campus which is located in a quiet part of the Kemang neighbourhood of South Jakarta.
NIS Jakarta recently joined the Nord Anglia Education family of international schools. Staff from the NAE Regional Office expressed their delight for all the children involved.
