Transitions & Relocation
Relocating to Qatar should be an exciting time for any family, but the ongoing success of that transition frequently depends on the support and welcome from the new community. We are proud to have a Transitions Programme designed to ensure our new families settle into their new lives. The ISL Transition Team ensures the continuity and development of the programme.
All members of the ISL community, including the school administration, teachers, students and the Parent Student Association, play an integral role in the transitions process. Important parts of the Transitions process include an Orientation Day, Buddy systems, Coffee Mornings and regular workshops looking at living in Qatar, identity and culture and moving on.
"At ISL Qatar our family found a home away from home. Our daughters were immediately welcomed by the ISL Qatar community and a customized integration program was waiting for them. The school friendly environment really helped our kids adaption and their well being, which is a great relief as parents."
