Our organisation:

Location: The school is situated in the city of St. Andrä-Wördern 25 km outside Vienna, Austria.
Main tasks:
To support our pedagogical staff in their work - help prepare and give presentations, take part in project work, exhibitions, games, events, drama group, etc.

To be available for the students' questions and concerns, support them, learn, play and talk with them

accommodation, food and transport arrangements

We offer accomodation in host families, who are parents of our students at Kreamont. The family will welcome you just like a new member of the family, i.e. to have meals together, be invited to family activities, and get help when needed. Of course you will also have a private space, a room of your own. Lunch will be provided in school. Families are within walking distance to school, or if not, then transport will be provided and transport costs (to school) covered.
