Return to School and Coronavirus


Please be vigilant with healthy habits.

Dear Parents,

I hope you and your child(ren) have had a relaxing break during this half-term holiday.

The coronavirus situation continues to evolve, although at this moment we have no changes to school beyond what was already announced in my letter just before the holidays began. At the moment, there are only 35 confirmed cases in Thailand.

As we all prepare to return to school, I’d like to remind everyone to be vigilant with keeping healthy habits such as thorough hand washing and other preventative measures to inhibit infection. 

If you have travelled to mainland China, or visited a specific location (resorts, hotels or other venues) where there have been diagnosed cases or come into contact with people who have recently been in one of the high outbreak areas, please provide a doctor’s note of good health for your child(ren) prior to their return to school, whether they show symptoms of ill health or not. If your child is not feeling well, please keep them out of school until they are cleared. This may take up to 14 days from the last point of contact. Currently, we rely on the honesty of our parents to report visiting areas of high infection or being in contact with people who have recently been to these areas.

Best regards,

Matt Mills

Head of School

During every school holiday, the Buildings and Grounds staff work hard ensuring the school is scrubbed clean for the return of students. This year they have taken extra steps to scrub surfaces ready for students returning to school on Monday 17th February.
