Outside tutor infected, international school shuttered


The Pracha Uthit campus of the Singapore International School of Bangkok is closed from Wednesday through Monday (March 11-15) after it emerged that a private tutor to eight of its students was infected with the Covid-19 virus.

“No staff members or students have tested positive for Covid-19,” said Sharon Ng, principal of the school’s primary section, adding that the school was informed only on Wednesday morning that the tutor was infected.
Classrooms were promptly emptied and scrubbed with sanitiser and parents were called to fetch their children.
The school’s stock price had by 2pm dropped more than 5 per cent, from Bt8.90 to Bt8.45 per share. It reported Bt1.132 billion in revenue in 2019 and net profit of Bt220.87 million.
