Re: Singapore Salary to Match £60k in China?

If you compare Tianjin and Singapore, the equivalent salary would be S$230,000 a year. www.numbeo.com

Re: applying for the same position on multiple sites

I applied to my current school (which I have not yet arrived at due to Covid) through Schrole, but I actually interviewed and got the job at Search.

Re: thai police clearance cert

That's sounds more like it. They will only issue one police check a day so I had to go back twice. The second one was for an application for certification. I find its better to have copies of police reports from every country I've worked in regardless of whether my new school requires it. Maybe I'm ...

Re: thai police clearance cert

Brillo, just to clarify, were you applying for a police report in Thai or an English one for those leaving the country? I was at the central police station in Pathum Wan at the beginning of July and needed all the paperwork. The only difference with the previous time I went in June was they had set ...

Re: thai police clearance cert

I've been to the central police station in Pathum Wan twice for police checks in the last month. It takes about an hour. You need your blue book, passport (and copies of both) plus you're current contract and the contract for your next school. Sign everything.150 Baht including postage.

Re: Staying for the Summer, or flying home for a visit?

We don't want to go through two sets of quarantine. We've already asked our landlord if we can stay extra month. Our new school is a 2 1/2 hour flight away (different country) and that's quite enough. To be honest I'd rather not get on a plane at all.

Re: Let the Bloodbath Begin.....

We're also moving to a country currently with closed boarders (for foreigners). While it is concerning, the school has given no indication that we will not be required. I'm being contacted by department heads about possible PD opportunities, I have a school email address and my kids have been assign...

Re: Job Cuts

"Think about it from the parent perspective: why would I pay for a pricey private/international school for a year if I can just go to the local public option online for a year before things are sorted out?: Because the local public version is still inferior to the private version? And also, the priv...
