ABIS wishes everybody a safe holiday. We hope you and your loved ones enjoy the summer. Stay healthy!
From Monday 16th of March 2020, due to Corona Virus, our school is doing distance learning. Kronen Zeitung wrote an article to reflect how we are dealing on these difficult times for all. ABIS wish all our students to enjoy their distance learning and we all hope to see our students soon! #everythingwillbeok
The PYPX (PYP Exhibition) is a unique feature of the IB. It is the culminating project of the Primary Years Programme and is a great example of the kind of learning that takes place at ABIS when students own their learning.
This year, under the umbrella central idea of “Small Actions Can Change the World”, our students inquired into a range of areas including animal breeding, bullying, global warming, veganism, therapy animals,and how athletes can influence the lives of others.
The PYPX is all about student voice, choice and ownership, of students taking responsibility for their learning. It’s about giving our eldest PYP students the opportunity to inquire and explore real issues that matter to them.

Humans are “designed” to move! Movement supports a child’s holistic development. Play allows us to discover new things about ourselves, take on different points of view, face different challenges and build resilience. Play allows us to step outside the ordinary and discover the extraordinary.
ABIS students help Venezuela - Project on ORF
Grade 5 to 8 students took action after becoming aware of the current crisis in Venezuela. Our students sent video messages to students in Venezuela with words of encouragement and questions.
For their Unit on Space and the Solar System, PYP 3 teachers organised a “traveling planetarium” to visit our school on Jan 29th. This means that our solar system was brought right into our school! All classes were given a 30- minute show on the stars, galaxies, dark matter and much more.
