Shadowing Day | 14 de mayo


Una de las mejores formas de familiarizarse con un lugar es experimentándolo de primera mano. Nido ofrecerá precisamente eso a través de su Shadow Day, el martes 14 de mayo. Los alumnos de octavo a tercero medio, que actualmente no asisten a Nido, están invitados a venir al colegio para experimentar el programa académico, el estilo de enseñanza y aprendizaje de Nido, la vida en el campus y la diversidad de nuestro cuerpo estudiantil.

¿Cómo funciona el programa de shadowing?
Ofrecemos a los estudiantes de octavo básico a tercero medio la oportunidad de ponerse en el lugar de un alumno de Nido por un día. Los alumnos visitantes serán asignados a un embajador estudiantil de Nido de aproximadamente la misma edad. Los embajadores estudiantiles están agradecidos de tener la oportunidad de conocer a los alumnos visitantes y compartir sus experiencias con ellos. Durante el Shadow Day, los alumnos visitantes experimentarán un día normal en Nido junto a su compañero.

Pueden confirmar su asistencia registrándose en www.nido.cl/shadowday. ¡Los cupos son limitados!



One of the best ways to get a feel for a place is to experience it first-hand. Nido will offer precisely that through its Shadow Day on Tuesday, May 14. Students in Grades 8-11 (ages 13-17) that don't currently attend Nido are invited to come experience the academic program, the Nido style of teaching and learning, life on campus, and the diversity of our student body.

How does shadowing work?

We offer students in 8th to 11th grade the opportunity to step into the shoes of a Nido student for a day. Visiting students will be assigned to a Student Ambassador of approximately the same age. Ambassadors welcome the opportunity to meet visiting students and share their experiences with them. During shadow days visiting students will experience a regular day at Nido together with their buddy.

Sign up and RSVP in www.nido.cl/shadowday. Space is limited!
