There will be no increase in fees charged by private schools in Kuwait, a local newspaper reported Friday, citing an education source.
“Private schools of different educational systems will not hike fees for the next school year 2021-22,” the source told Al Rai.
Kuwait has shifted to distance-learning as part of precautions aimed to limit the spread of COVID-19. As part of the shift, a 25 per cent cut in the fees was introduced.
The source said the fees will be due in full should the in-person class system be reinstated in the country.
Sources disclosed the registration fee for the new academic year in Arab and model schools is KD50, indicating this will be deducted from the first installment and it is not refundable. Sources said the registration fee is paid at the beginning of the year to guarantee seats for the students until the school year begins officially.
The new academic year in Kuwait is due to start in September as health authorities are at pains to achieve herd immunity against COVID-19 in the next few months.
