Saudi Arabia’s Prince Faisal bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, governor of Madinah Region, signed an agreement with Yanbu Aramco Sinopec Refining Co (Yasref) for the Madinah International Academy (Madak) project.

Prince Faisal signed the agreement with Yasref chief executive officer, Mohammed Al-Naghash, and chairman, Mohammed Al-Daoud.

Madak is one of the high-profile educational endowment projects currently under way in Madinah, and is aimed at the kindergarten- to secondary-student age group.

With a capacity of 1,000 pupils, the school will include sports, community, and exploration centres, in addition to three libraries and learning resource areas, Saudi Arabia’s state news agency, SPA, reported.

Commenting on the development, Prince Faisal commended Yasref’s efforts towards the sustainable social development that would be brought about by Madak. He added that the development would contribute to the creation of a creativity- and innovation-focused generation that would help to achieve the government aspirations charted out by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman Bin Abddulaziz Al Saud.
