SAUDI ARABIA:  Saudi and Indian businessmen open schools in Buraidah and Alkhobar

In order to promote education in Saudi Arabia, a group of Saudi and Indian businessmen and educationists have opened schools in Buraidah and Alkhobar,

Nadeem Tarin, an educationist and philanthropist who has undertaken the initiative in conjunction with Ibrahim Al-Qayid, chairman of Bait Al-Salah International Company for education and Sultan Salman Al-Saady, chairman of Saady Group of Companies.

Whilst speaking at an event in Riyadh, Tarin was quoted as saying:  “The Noran International School in Buraidah, and Dhahran Buds International School (DBIS) in Alkhobar are the two new educational institutions, which have been established by the group recently.”  He continued by saying that the group “strives to promote education, especially for Saudi and expatriate children.” This comes after starting two flagship schools - Dunes International School in the Eastern Province and Daratassalam International Delhi Public School in Riyadh. Tarin continued, “We also support students carry out philanthropic activities and sponsor various scientific, academic, national and professional events in the community.” 

Awad Al-Qahtani, DBIS chief operating officer, said: “The school, which is the first of its kind for kids in Saudi Arabia, has a cumulative enrolment of over 200 (pre-nursery, nursery, and grades 1 & 2) students under the supervision of American and Arab teachers” adding “plans are afoot to open about 20 more branches of the school across the Kingdom and provide quality education for our children.”


How does this effect the client?

Employers wanting to recruit expats/ who want employees to move to Saudi Arabia should highlight the opening of these two new International Schools, in an effort to attract potential candidates to the country.
