Emotional support dogs positively influence our mental health. So why not bring trained service dogs into schools? Our High School Counselor, Ian Lally, was featured in the Educators Going Global podcast to talk about Nido's Paws for Positivity program with two other international educators who have also started similar programs at their schools.
“Do you see yourself as more of a Connector, Thinker, Inquirer, Designer, or Changemaker?” This was the prompt given to all of our 1500 students last week during the visit by artist Adele Caemmerer. Instead of answering verbally, or in writing, students selected a color associated with each of the options and tied a ribbon of that color to a panel of wire mesh. Taken all together, the “data set” generated by the prompt has created a beautiful hanging exhibit just outside the entrance to the Media Center.
The 4th-grade community-building activity brought together the concepts of teamwork, inclusivity, and unity for their UN NIDO, UNIDO initiative.
Ninth-grade students kicked off their First Year Seminar course with the challenge of designing a device to protect an egg during a fall into the children’s pool in the Nido Aquatics Center.
Join us for our first Eagle Fun Run next Saturday, August 26, at 9:00 am. These fun runs gained popularity last year as parents, students, and staff members all joined in. Don't miss your chance to enjoy our beautiful Nido Hills for the 5K or the 2.7K course.
Join us on Saturday, September 2, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm for the return of our "Fiesta Huasa 2023" event. After a three-year hiatus, this celebration is back with a fun day for the entire family and a great opportunity to celebrate the traditions and culture of Chile.
The Class of 2023 was part of the nearly 180,000 students from over 150 countries who participated in the IB Diploma Program and they achieved exceptional results.
Thank you to the students from Nido and schools all over Santiago who attended! We hope to see you next winter!
