Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, September 2019 – As part of its efforts to promote children’s educational and scientific abilities and help them start the new school year with enthusiasm, Red Sea Mall (RSM), the main shopping and entertainment destination in Jeddah, concluded “Back to School” festival between 15 and 31 August.
The fun and entertainment activities, organized in the mall’s fountain area and designed to appeal to children’s imagination and colorful dreams, included four sections: scientific experiments, physical activities, manual skills, and discoveries.
A large number of RSM shops supported the festival, offering prizes, gifts, and rewards. Every participating child received a free meal from TGI Fridays, while their mothers received a complimentary massage and facial skincare session from L’occitane.

We believe in empowering children and promoting their skills for competition, discovery, and initiative-taking. The activities were designed to build children’s educational and scientific capacities and develop their physical and mental skills in a fun and entertaining way, helping them look forward to a new school year.”
