Living in Al Ahsa

Hi, I'm a Pakistani national and most probably being shifted to AlAhsa from Riyadh by end of Feb.
I want to ask:
how's life in Al Ahsa?
If any Pakistani family there, which school should I consider for my kids?
Are there any recreational parks?
What's the weather like?

Hello,

We are also a Pakistani family and moved to Al Ahsa from Pakistan just a week ago.

We have admitted our 7 yo kid in Al Reeyadah International School. Other options are Manaraat and Nada International school. Fee wise, Al Reeyadah's tuition fee is around 9500 per annum (http://alreeyada-school.com/admissions/) while for Nada, it is around 26k per annum (http://www.nadaschool.edu.sa/admission/fees.html). Distance-wise, Alreeyadah is around 10-14 kms outside the city (depending on where you live) and Nada is around 30-34 kms outside the city. For our 3.5 yo, we are still looking for a suitable option. We are considering Huda Al Noor International School for him at the moment.

We have not been to any recreational park yet, but I am sure there are many around. The weather is pleasant these days but I have been told it gets quite cold around January - February. Overall, my first few days here have been pleasant and overall it looks like a nice city.

no idea?

Thanku for your reply, I'll also consider Reeyadah or Huda International (I think it's an Indian school)
One more school is modern international school. Do you have any information regarding this school?
