Saudi-Pakistan ties boost: PISJ-ES plays integral role

On the auspicious occasion of the Saudi National Day, I extend my heartfelt felicitations to King Salman, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and people of the Kingdom.
The land of mountains, deserts and palm trees, Saudi Arabia not only has a geographical core position in the Arabian Peninsula but also is the spiritual center of Islam for Muslims across the globe.
Having an enormous cultural diversity and the sacred spirit of the true faith of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), this country provides a stirring religious inspiration for Muslims at large.
Today is the day to celebrate individuality, peace and sovereignty as a nation. This land of peace has always played a pivotal role in keeping the Ummah united under its shade of Islam.
Millions of Muslims from across the globe are attracted to visit the blessed mosques of Makkah and Madinah as pilgrims in order to fulfil their religious obligations and seek contentment for their souls.
Retaining its prestige as “pride of the nation” on the Saudi soil, Pakistan International School Jeddah — English Section (PISJ-ES) has been playing an integral role in strengthening the age-old Saudi-Pakistan friendly relationship.
Our curriculum includes Arabic language as a compulsory segment, in addition to study about Saudi Arabia and its culture. This helps our students feel deeply connected to the Kingdom.
Both countries maintain exemplary bilateral military, economic, security and cultural relations. This cultural synergy helps to elevate the overall socioeconomic structure in terms of trade, values, health and education in both the countries.
Sharing the joy of celebrating the Saudi National Day with great pride and enthusiasm, I pray for eternal peace in both the countries and their everlasting friendship. Long live Saudi Arabia and Saudi-Pakistan friendship!
