Pakistan International School educates children for more than five decades in collaboration of Pakistan Embassy, Saudi Arabia and strives for their bright future
There are ten Pakistani community schools across Saudi Arabia, educating thousands of Pakistani students.
These community schools founded in 1968 in the capital Riyadh, Pakistan International School Nasiriyah has also been providing education to thousands of Pakistani students.
After the new tax imposed by Saudi authorities namely family tax, the number of students has decreased from ten thousand to three thousand, while the number of students has also decreased due to Covid 19.
Naeem Akhtar, Retired Air Commodore and Principal of Pakistan International School Nasiriyah, said that we have always strived to provide better educational environment to the children so that the future of Pakistani children studying abroad can be made brighter.
According to school principal, we hope the schools will reopen in September, as announced by the Saudi government, but school will continue to teach children online until then.
Pakistan International School has also made arrangements to teach online to Pakistani students living in remote areas away from the capital Riyadh so that their educational activities can be continued especially in those areas where no Pakistani community schools.
