AMADEUS School Nurse
To ensure a healthy and hygienic school environment, our school nurse, Ms Nina Gutschi, advises students, their parents or guardians as well as AMADEUS staff on general healthcare issues.
Ms Gutschi´s main tasks consist of treating minor injuries and illnesses. She is on campus Monday to Friday, 7:00-12:00.
Should it be necessary for our students to see a doctor, they can see AMADEUS´ school doctor, Dr Sophie Chabert.
Should our students need a specialist, AMADEUS cooperate with various specialists for specific health care needs.

AMADEUS School Counsellor
Ms Kelly Underwood
At AMADEUS Vienna a School Counsellor is available every Monday-Friday from 9:30-14:00. The role of the School Counsellor is to assist students in any emotional, social or developmental matter that could affect their well-being and performance at school. Additionally, the counsellor participates in the development of school policies that promote positive life habits.
The counsellor observes students’ interactions within and outside the classroom (e.g., on the playground), holds meetings with parents and guides teachers. The School Counsellor also provides one-on-one support for students.
Children express their thoughts not only with words but also with their behaviour. Through games, stories and conversations, children and the counsellor analyse conflicts, find creative ways to solve them and practise social skills in order to build strong self-esteem.
Puberty and adolescence are natural phases in development where individuals start defining themselves and questioning their social relationships. Students can meet with the School Counsellor to discuss emotional and social issues as well as life goals in a friendly environment. Students are encouraged to practise analytic reasoning, make choices and commitments, use practical tools to cope with conflicts and implement problem-solving strategies.
Healthy Food and Physical Training
We believe good nutrition is essential to student health and balance, and our chefs strive to provide the utmost freshness by purchasing ingredients from local and regional vendors. Our menus change daily, with day students receiving a morning snack, a hot lunch, and afternoon snack. Boarding students are also provided with breakfast and dinner. Vegetarian options are always available and we accommodate religious and dietary concerns.
Our catering staff welcomes student requests and suggestions. Our experienced chefs enjoy the challenge of preparing foods from all around the world that reflects the diversity of our international student body. Students can explore the art of cooking through participating in various cooking clubs and workshops.
Moreover, both sections of the school make provision for the personal growth of students through a Physical, Social and Health Education (PSHE) programme. Students explore age-appropriate topics and develop skills applicable to all areas of their lives.
