English boost for Phuket Town school

PHUKET TOWN: The Phuket Thai Hua School has reached a 3-million-baht agreement with the Singapore-based Stamford education group to expand the teaching of English at the school. Sombat Atiset, the President of the Kusolsongkroh Foundation, the charitable organization that runs the school, said that the new English course will be launched at the beginning of this year’s first semester, in May. Stamford, which has ties to Britain’s Cambridge University and language centers in southern Thailand, will supply four or five English teachers from Singapore to complement the Thai teachers already teaching English at the Thai Hua School. The extra annual cost to students of the Stamford English course is expected to be about 3,000 baht. The deal with Stamford follows Thai Hua’s commitment to Chinese language studies and a 10-million baht investment in information technology.
