After School Activities (ASA)
The After School Activities (ASA) programme at Danube International School Vienna enables students to participate in a wide range of activities to broaden their education, try new hobbies and develop skills to compete for school teams. We want students to develop new skills and gain an understanding of teamwork and commitment. The activities are primarily staff led, but we also use a number of external coaches to deliver various specialist courses. The ASA programme consists of a variety of choices and can include competitive sports to music and art, dance, robotics, debate, and language learning.
Students can choose two different activities each week and up to six in a year. With each session running for ten to eleven weeks. As the programme continues to grow each year, it is true that both leaders and students have a lot of fun learning together.
Below you can see more details about the artistic, cultural and sporting range of activities that we currently provide.
