Re: Indians in Muttenz and Schooling

The 14 year old may struggle a lot if going into a public school without speaking a Swiss language. Could you possibly use an international school instead? The 7 year old shouldn't have a problem.

Re: Indians in Muttenz and Schooling

My daughter was 13 when she made the move from IS Berne to local (French) school in Fribourg. It needed a lot of extra effort (read private tuitions), but she got there, moved to the pre-gym stream from the general stream, went through college, and is at Uni now.

It is doable - and totally worth it!!!

After Kindergarten, Hochdeutsch is the language of education in the German-speaking parts.

Swiss German will come very quickly when they start school here. It's not essential for learning as the lessons are all in standard German. Dialect will be picked up during break time, sports lessons and meeting up with friends after school.

There are Indian families in all of the Basel conurbation. You'd have to go to a tiny village way out to have none at all. Muttenz is a nice town.

What do you mean "outdoor activities"? That could be anything.

Yes Muttenz had sport clubs. Most communities do. Yes it has plenty of public space.

Indian or Pakistani? Aren't India and Pakistan rather hostile to each other?

Some families have members on both sides of the border.

Re: Indians in Muttenz and Schooling

If I read your text correctly you are looking for a sports club specific with indian members?

It seems like we have something like an indian cricket team in or small village, I'm sure that close to basel there will be some, too.

Re: Indians in Muttenz and Schooling

Maybe this man could advise you:
Basel Cricket Club (Singh Jitheswar). Therwilerstrasse 31. 4153 Reinach samarkand@bluewin.ch.
Disclaimer: I don't know him. I googled "Muttenz" and "Cricket".
