The international school in Bangkok where I work has offered a small discount on fees in term 3. I doubt there is a law saying they have to offer a discount / refund as technically the school is still operating (albeit learning online). 

 

What is S31?

I think they mean Soi 31 on that one big famous road that runs through BKK. I looked on Google Maps and oh man, looks pricey.

They should offer discounts as many international school are asking teachers to take a salary cut.

Where have you heard this?

 

I know a good number of teachers at other international schools (at about 5 or 6 of the better international schools in Bangkok) and haven't heard of any news about reducing teachers salary. That news would spread pretty quickly amongst staff at other schools. 

 

We are still open and working therefore there is no way they can reduce salary.

Highly unlikely you will get a refund.

 

Many private schools (on the Thai calendar) are going back on July 1 but with no holiday in October this year.

They are not "required" but some do. We got a 15% refund on this period. Not much but better than nothing.
