Our international school on Rama III is the second foray into this sector with the first, the Oxford International College Brighton located in Brighton on 20.2 acres slated for commencement in Summer 2023. Earlier, we have entered into an agreement with Nord Anglia Education, one of the world’s largest leading premium international school organizations, to operate Oxford International College Brighton, the UK’s top ranked Sixth Form School, on our Ovingdean Hall, Greenways Brighton property. We continue to be commitment to delivering world-class projects and partnerships as is exemplified by the launch of this Rama III international school which is our first international school development in Thailand and our flagship education investment. The company believes that the development of Rama III international school will create the strong recurring income to it in the future. The school is set to open in August 2025” said Mr. Ben.
