Default Family re-locating to Bahrain

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me please?

I’m am trying to find some more information about relocating to Bahrain and would like to hear more from mothers who have made the move themselves. Specifically I would like to know more about the schooling and what activities are available for children, such as tennis/swimming/piano lessons etc.

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks

are you in Dubai now? shouldn't be that difficult if you have already moved to Dubai. I hear St Christopher's school in Bahrain is very good.

Yes, have been in Dubai for some time and happy to re-locate to Bahrain but I have heard that the schooling isn't as good and that there aren't many activities for the children, just wondered if that was true and would be interested to hear from parents who have children at school in Bahrain

we don't have many members who are in Bahrain, but I have got a friend who has been over there years and she loves it, she prefers it to Dubai. I have visited quite a few times and whilst it isn't as ahead as Dubai with the amount of Malls etc I am pretty sure it will be a great place to live. There is a good club called the Dilmun Club, most families join there.
