Sports Day 2024

High Jump

Thursday 28 March saw the highly anticipated NIHS Sports Day take place on school grounds for the second-year running.

Similarly to the 2023 edition, team sports such as 3v3 basketball, 5v5 soccer, team netball and volleyball were among the popular attractions within the program, along with the traditional favourites, high jump, sprints and relays that all contributed to an electric atmosphere over the school grounds. Furthermore, this year brought about the return of the fan favourite water relay and tug ‘o’ war novelty events, both proving to be exactly that.

The school Drum Corps, led by Mr. Lee, did an amazing job in setting the tone and building suspense throughout the day whilst the ever-popular BBQ, run by the NIHS Pedal Prix Club ensured staff and students were adequately fuelled for an eventful afternoon.

House spirit and colour were personified throughout the day, as staff and students went above and beyond in representing their houses with the annual ‘house spirit cup’ on the line. Despite amazing efforts from all involved, it was Lofty house who took out the coveted trophy, cementing themselves in the history books for 2024.

Lofty Spirit Shield

With the house spirit cup awarded to Lofty house, the suspense built around the venue in announcing the 2024 Sports Day champions, a trophy earnt by accruing the largest number of points across the entirety of the Sports Day related events. After some final calculations and last-minute deliberations, the results were officially finalised to award Torrens house as our winners on the day by a narrow, 13-point margin ahead of Morialta in 2nd place.

Torrens Winners

Congratulations to all our individual ‘age champion’ award winners and runners up who were recognised not only for their outstanding efforts across the day but also across the pre-events held in the weeks leading up to the event.

Many thanks to all involved who contributed to making the day an overwhelming success.
