With the oil boom in sixties, Saudi Arabia was becoming a nucleus of trade and commercial activity. Like that of the other parts of the kingdom, Pakistani engineers, doctors and professionals from all walks of life were also pouring in the eastern province. But in the absence of any Pakistani educational institution they could not keep their families here for long. There was a pressing need for a school. At that juncture Mr. Abbas Hussain Malik established Pakistani community school Al-khobar with the sole objective of giving quality education to the children of Pakistani community.
So devoted was Mr. Abbas Hussain Malik in his mission and vision, so selective was the teaching staff he recruited and so immaculate was his management style that Pakistani community school soon earned the fame of an exemplary seat of learning that thrice has the school been declared as the best overseas school for its distinguished academic performance.
