Children of deceased soldiers and flood victims admitted to educational institutes

December 9, 2009

Following the directive of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, Dr. Ali bin Nasser Al-Ghifais, Governor of the General Organization for Technical Training, today instructed all technical and telecommunication colleges and vocational and industrial institutes to immediately admit the sons and daughters of soldiers who died in recent fighting on the Kingdom’s southern borders. The order is also applicable to the children of those who died in last month’s flash floods in Jeddah. Although the admissions deadline for the next academic term has passed, Dr. Al-Ghifais has asked that school officials accommodate the new applicants, due to their special circumstances.
