Thanks for info WakaBeen here for 4 years with 2 kids under 10 was lucky with the schools, places are hard to get.
Housing is expensive, manly built but adequate if you only plan to rent. Ras Laffan is not too bad commute depends if you are driving or company coach, can take 45-75mins.
How did your kids get on? Does Qatar keep them entertained?
What was the standard of the school like? - which school was it?
Do you give them some room to 'free roam - or do they need to be kept close to home for security?
