(MENAFN - Arab News) The Pakistan International School Jeddah-English Section (PISJ-ES) now has a new school management committee (SMC), Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Education announced in a notification on Tuesday.
The PISJ-ES was embroiled in controversy after Pakistan Ambassador Mohammed Naeem Khan sacked its principal Sehar Kamran for alleged corruption and nepotism on Nov. 19. The school has a new acting principal in Imran Raza Khan.
The ambassador announced the names of the new SMC on Tuesday at the Pakistan Consulate, flanked by Aftab A. Khokher, the consul general, and Sohail Ali Khan, the link officer and press consul. The ministry had approved the ambassador's nominations for the school body.
The seven members of the SMC are Hamid Bashir, Touqir Ahmed Malik, Mohammed Akhter Qureshi, Mohammed Azfar Ansari, Anis Arif, Tahir Malik and Faisal Afzal Khan.
Kamran Ahmed Butt and Nasir Rashid are reserve members.
Naeem Khan urged the SMC members to support the school and ensure it achieves excellent results. He outlined their various functions and urged them to adhere to the school's rules. They should also develop policy guidelines for the institution, he said.
The ambassador said they should ensure the school has a conducive learning environment for teachers and students. They serve on a voluntary basis and should act in a fair, impartial and transparent manner, he said.
He also visited the PISJ-ES and addressed the staff. He assured them of his full support and said the school would reward professional excellence. "Teaching is a noble task and teachers have the highest place in our society because they have the responsibility of building our future generations. I'm sure you will work with full dedication and professionalism," he said.
He also took questions and suggestions from teachers and said he would follow up on their concerns.
