Virtual Open Day

Given the COVID-19 pandemic our last Open Days were held online. Our virtual Open Day included a presentation by our Principal, Dr Lorenz Metzger, about our school, curriculum and learning methods. 

Q&A - Secondary School - 17:36

It was followed by a Q&A session with our Deputy Principal, Dr Horst Giesler, Head of Junior Secondary, Thomas Szartowicz, and Head of Senior Secondary/IB Coordinator, Annie Thomson. The Q&A sessions starts about 17:36 minutes into the video.

Q&A - Preschool & Primary - 1:17:05

The final part was Q&A session for parents interested in our Preschool and Primary School with the Head of Preschool, Silke Bethke, and Head of Primary School, Klemens Pedarnig. This Q&A sessions starts about 1:17:05 minutes into the video.
