If it's bilingual school, or so-called EP (English Program), there will be a fee, which can vary quite a bit depending on school and origin of English language teachers. Yearly fees to my knowledge can be in range from around 30k baht up to 150k baht; plus books, and uniforms, and all other extras.

 

International schools has another tuition year running from early September till mid July. Many international school re-opened this week, and they are in third term, so the academic year ends middle of next month. Fee for international schoolsrange typically from little over 200k baht a year till around a million baht a year, often paid in three terms.

I know that. My daughter went back last week for 3 days and 2 days home schooling and this week 2 days school and 3 days home schooling.éé:

This, because they divided the class by 2 (11 instead of 22 students).

School holidays starting today. First term has to be paid by the end of June.

Our school refunded the 'optional' summer school fee end of May. They usually issue the bills for the post songkran  term about one week into the term, so will get it next month. Not sure how much but they did do limited internet school lessons (usually about one hour a day).

 

Unfortunately have had 4 unplanned bills this month - boundary wall repairs (hit by truck), concrete support post in house has suffered rusting of the steel reinforcement and has started to disintegrate and replacement next week, air-conditioner failed (was 8 years old and second hand then!) and gas hob caught fire and melted. 20,000 baht for the school fees now gone ..... hope they can wait until end of July!

I thought Thai schools were free.

Those can't be international schools as the fees there are much higher. 

1st term easily around 250-300k

I didn't know paying school fees was supposed to be a game. You pay to get something in return. 

It would be very sporting of him to be pushing kids through kindergarten as his age.

Those paying half a million or thereabouts a year in school fees are either rich or the company pays. That would be nearly my annual income. My daughters school costs around 40,000 baht per year all in (including English program). My sister-in-law, a Thai teacher who teaches 11 year olds at a government school, gave her some Maths tuition during lockdown and said she was as good as her schoolkids...... she is 8 years old. Her English was good enough to get her into an inter-school spelling bee. So not too worried about the quality of her education.

500K baht/yr doesn't make you rich, just a good earner outside of Thailand. Our school costs about 128,000 per year for EP school.

I'm reading some schools are doing alternate days for kids, so only 3 days a week whilst teacher works 6 days for social distancing?

 

How does this work, are parents now paying the same school fees for half the teaching time?

I know at least one school that's doing that.   I believe the fees are the same, but the students are given special homework to do on the days not in school.
