November Newsletter – Nightingale Zug
Dear Nightingale friends
Starting to get in touch with our winter season, we are wondering how this feels in Uganda or in Iceland… Hopefully you all enjoy this time of the year in your countries!
We are pleased to get the chance to write the November Newsletter 2016.
The Nightingale year 2016/2017 in Zug, Switzerland has just started with an emotional starting festival at the beginning of November at the Guthirt primary school. 10 new mentor-mentee couples are from now on spending their Nightingale year together. Besides the children and the students, also the parents of the children took part at the festival. This gave us the chance to celebrate a warm and welcoming start with all the involved persons. Moreover, we were honored with the presence of the education director of Zug as well as the prorector of the schools of Zug. Their presence underlined the importance of this project for our region.
As you might already know, Miriam Aegerter, who leaded the Nightingale program for the past few years in Zug, is now working in other matters at our University. Together with Margrit Burri (School of Guthirt) and Claudia Meierhans (PH Zug) Mireille Gugolz is giving her best to take over the lead of this enjoyable program.

In the Catalan News I found an interesting article by Carla Marchesi about how immigrants represented about 16% of Catalonia’s total population, and almost 17% of those foreigners were children between 0 and 14 years old. But the ‘Rossinyol’ project contemplates these issues in its objectives…
