The boys’ senior and middle section computer laboratories have also been improved and this year the school has upgraded its computer network to ensure that the whole campus has access to wi-fi.
Sports are an integral part of education at Pakistan Urdu School and its cricket team performed well in the Cricket Bahrain Association tournament (under-12), receiving remarkable appreciation.
In addition, the school has formed a hockey team and students have shown great interest and performance.
