Fowzy Jamaldeen – Chairman, Board of Directors

Welcome to Sri Lankan International School website. As you read through the pages of this site, you will learn about our wonderful students, our School, and get a feel for the vibrancy and strength of our wider Sri Lankan International School community.

SLISR is one of the leading providers of education in Riyadh.  We aim to give every student in our care the very best possible education in order to prepare them for life beyond school. We are a ‘Learning Community’ which encourages staff, students, past students and parents to involve themselves fully in all aspects of school life and to identify themselves with its core values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Cooperation and Achievement.

SLISR has entered its thirty-second year of operation and has seen many changes in that time. Through deliberate strategic planning by the founders, administration and Board of Directors the school has grown tremendously. We are experiencing student enrollment at an all-time high. Your new Board of Directors is committed to ensuring that the SLISR remains focused on the future, so all graduates are prepared for college and the challenges that lie before them as the leaders of tomorrow.

Our renewed hope and aim will be to broaden the opportunities and physical resources to cater to the ever-growing needs of education and cooperate life of the school. We shall endeavor to transform this dream into a realty, since schooling has the greatest influence on an individual’s life. It should enable the child to blossom into a well-balanced person, healthy in mind and spirit.

Both from an academic, as well as producing all-round personalities, we are poised for continued success.  Our Board of Directors has not accomplished this alone.  All the members of our school community have supported the school in a myriad of ways.  Whether it’s by volunteering, cheering on our sports teams, or attending our annual school events, you continue to be staunch supporters of every aspect of the inner workings of our school.

Thank you for choosing SLISR for your child’s education and we appreciate your staying connected and involved.  I ask that you continue with us on this journey so that the next thirty-two years can have the same success. It has been said, and I wholeheartedly agree, when you are part of Sri Lankan School, you are part of a family.
