Students, teachers lament Wannawit School's closure

After 75 years, Wannawit School has closed its doors. The move was not unexpected. The school had been struggling financially for the past three years, with declining enrolments.

Opened on June 20, 1946, Wannawit School offered education opportuities for children of low-income families in Bangkok. It stands on three rai of land on Sukhumvit Road, near Soi Nana - now one of the city's red-light districts.

Students, teachers and alumni all expressed their sorrow and disappointment at the closure. A farewell reception was held on Feb 26, 2022.
