JIS offers the British international curriculum and prepares students for GCSEs, a few IGCSEs, A-levels and introduced the International Baccalaureate, in August 2011. JIS has always been very much involved in the wider Bruneian community and parents are extremely supportive. JIS takes very seriously the statement that it is an international school and seeks to promote understanding of the wide variety of cultural traditions and beliefs represented in the school. It encourages debate about international affairs, the environment, modern history, global health issues and the development of a common international culture. The school prides itself on the interaction and friendship between young people of different ethnic groups and strives to promote international understanding in a practical and tangible way.

A strong emphasis is placed upon academic work and many pupils have been successful in gaining places at top universities overseas including; Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, LSE, Imperial College, Australian National University, National University of Singapore, Melbourne and Cornell. A broad range of extra-curricular activities is offered and pupils participate in sporting, musical and dramatic events. The atmosphere is liberal, but well disciplined.

Academic

Jerudong International School prides itself on the academic achievements of its students. The School’s motto is “Achieving Excellence” and we encourage our students to do their very best in their academic studies.

In the Junior School, the students progress from the Early Learning Goals from the UK to a curriculum incorporating the best of the British National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum so that studies are interesting and relevant to our students who come from such a wide range of nationalities and cultures.

The Middle Years presents the opportunity for students to explore the range of subjects based on but not limited by the British National Curriculum in a wide yet rigorous curriculum. Towards the end of the Middle Years, parents can, if they wish, enter their children into academic competitions such as that run by the University of New South Wales International Competition and Assessment for Schools (ICAS) in four subjects - Computer Skills and English. JIS students who have entered these competitions have performed superbly.

The Upper Years are a time for preparing students for the British external examinations and assessment, yet exam results are not the sole focus. We want to nurture and develop students with a passion to learn about the world around them.

Academic Curriculum

Nursery up to Year 6 guides students on a programme of structured learning, play and discovery. In the Early Years we begin by incorporating the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and from Year 1 onwards include relevant aspects of the British National Curriculum. These curricula have been adapted and enhanced for our international setting.

Early Years : Ages 2 to 5

Our Early Learning Goals aim to develop the whole child at a pace that is suitable for them. From Nursery, Kindergarten to Reception the children learn from experimenting and interacting in a supportive, engaging environment. They thrive on teamwork, decision-making and problem-solving activities. Making friends, learning about care, respect and consideration for others are paramount. These early years have a crucial role in fostering intellectual, physical and emotional progress as students are encouraged to grow creatively, to acquire confidence and develop effective personal and social skills.

In Reception, the early elements of reading, writing and mathematics are introduced to provide a strong foundation for entry into Year 1. Our Reception students also continue their creative, social and physical development through the experience of arts and crafts, a foreign language, music and physical education.

In the early days of schooling, parental involvement is vital and parents are welcome to join trips and fun days. They can also meet informally with teachers at the start and end of the day and at pre-arranged times after school.

Junior Years 1 – 6 Ages 6 to 11 From Years 1 – 6, the curriculum helps to develop the student’s knowledge and understanding across the subjects ensuring progression in terms of content, skills and the development of research strategies. The use of the International Primary Curriculum ensures a cross curricular, internationally minded approach. There is also an increased focus on Science and the advancement of ICT applications. Students are expected to take a more active role in planning programmes of work as well as acquiring a sense of responsibility and autonomy in preparation for transition to Senior School. They are encouraged to be creative, independent thinkers and self-motivated learners.

A broad curriculum of some twelve subjects is offered which includes:

English,Mathematics ,Science ,Information and Communication Technology ,Design Technology, Geography ,History, P.E, Swimming and Games, Art ,Music, Modern Foreign Languages ,Personal, Social and Health Education

These are supported by the enrichment programme.

Co-Curricular Activities

Our programme of Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) offers students an opportunity to take part in a variety of activities led by well qualified and dedicated staff. Each term students make their selections based on the long list of activities on offer. The majority take place at school; however, there are quite a few off site options where school buses provide transport. There are different time slots for each round of activities based on the end of the school day with a dedicated Pre-Prep (Reception – Year 2) slot running from 2.10pm until 3.00pm. CCAs for Prep (Years 3 – 6) children begin at 3.10pm.

The promotion of essential physical and personal skills such as communication, cooperation and problem solving skills form the focus of the Co-Curricular Activities programme. The exciting range of activities encourages pupils to become enthused by skills and hobbies and to willingly offer input, challenge their understanding and stretch their imagination.

Sporting Activities :

The programme of sports activities includes: team sports, swimming lessons, competitive squad training, coaching sessions, fixtures, sports play days and sports tours.

Musical Activities :

Our Music activities programme includes: choirs, recorder groups and workshops. Individual music tuition is available for a varied selection of instruments ranging from the cello to the traditional Bruneian Gamelan.

Welcome to Admissions and Registration

Welcome to Admissions and Registration at Jerudong International School (JIS), Brunei Darussalam. JIS offers an international, British style education to over 1600 students aged from 2 years to 18 years from 51 different countries. Our school year starts in late August and ends early July. However, we welcome enquiries from families throughout the academic year. We recognise that families coming from different countries may need to start during the school year on occasion and we will try our very best to work with you to ensure your child quickly adjusts and settles into school life.

This section explains how students are placed into academic year groups and what the admissions process is for different age students. It contains an online enquiry form, downloadable application forms, details of the curriculum for different age groups, the tuition fees and has a question and answer area for Frequently Asked Questions. If you are applying for a Boarding place, we will explain about the process here too.

Information important once your child has received a confirmed offer to enrol at Jerudong International School is also available here such as school uniform details, stationery packs and lists of required textbooks. Non Bruneian students who are registered at JIS are required to have a Student Pass and further information about this can also be found within this section.

Moving school is a big decision and can be quite stressful especially if you are moving from overseas, when finding the right school for your son or daughter will be one of your highest priorities. The Admissions team are here to do everything we can to help your child’s smooth transition. During term time, the Admissions Office is open from 7.30am – 3.30pm, Monday to Friday and with reduced staffing from 8am to 2pm, Monday to Friday during school holidays. (NB. The School closes every Friday from 12 noon - 2pm.)

Please feel most welcome to come and visit our wonderful school. We just ask that you contact us in advance to arrange such a visit so that we can ensure we are available to assist you and show you around. We encourage families to apply as early as possible, as from time to time we do experience waiting lists in some Year groups. We look forward to hearing from you!

Corporate Fees

Corporate fees are for those parents whose employers have agreed to pay for their child’s education as part of their contract. Parents should bring a letter from their employer to the School Accounts Department who will liaise directly with the employer to arrange payment of the School Fees. Usually parents will need to pay for uniform, stationery, textbooks and any school trips separately. Receipts will be issued for these so if eligible, you will be able to claim this back from your employer.

Non corporate fees

Non corporate fees are for those parents whose fees are not fully subsidized by their company.

There are two different rates – for Bruneian citizens and non Bruneian citizens. For more information, contact the Accounts Department on +673 241 1000 ext 1311/1314 or email accounts@jis.edu.bn

Student Pass

All non Bruneian students are required by the Brunei Government to have a Student Pass in order to study in Brunei.

For students resident in Brunei (up to 18 years of age)

The process for getting a Student Pass is as follows:

1. JIS will need a copy of the passport page showing the work permit for the parent who is employed to work in Brunei and the parent's passport information page.

2. JIS will also need a copy of the passport page of your child showing the Dependent Pass. This is usually issued at the same time or soon after the work permit has been issued. JIS will also need a copy of the child's passport information page.

3. JIS will then take these copies together with a special application form endorsed by the school and countersigned by the Principal to the Ministry of Education. The Ministry of Education will then issue a form on three different coloured papers (white, green and pink) to JIS.

4. JIS will pass the form on the three coloured papers (white, green and pink) to the parents. The parents will then need to take their passports, the student passport and the three coloured papers (white, green and pink) to the Immigration Department. The Immigration Department will endorse the three forms and also the student passport. The white and green forms will be returned to the parents. Immigration will retain the pink form.

1. The parent must give the endorsed green form to JIS so that confirmation of the student pass can be formally recorded. Students may not commence studies without a valid Student Pass. The white form is the parent’s personal copy.

For non Bruneian students resident in Brunei who are 18 years of age or above

When a student reaches their 18th birthday, they are no longer a Dependent, so their Dependent Visa and Student Pass will be cancelled.

There is a different process for students who are 18 years old as they will need a Student Visa, which is issued by the Immigration Department.

JIS recommends that the simplest way to obtain a Student Visa is to retain the services of an agent to process the Student Visa. If parents email visa@jis.edu.bn they can receive more information, or, contact the School Admissions Office.

For weekly boarding students who are usually resident outside Brunei

The application process for Boarding House students whose family resides outside of Brunei (e.g. Miri or Labuan) is handled by an agent retained by the School. The agent charges a fee in addition to the cost of the Student Pass.

Parents who would like the advice or assistance of the agent can email tovisa@jis.edu.bn for more information, or, contact the Admissions Office.

OUR HISTORY

Fr. Piet de Wit was appointed as a resident priest in Brunei Town in 1937 to assist Fr. Crowther, MHM, who was the first resident priest in Brunei. Fr. Piet de Wit started the first Catholic school in a rented house owned by Mr. Kay in Jalan Padang, which also housed a chapel and the living quarters of the priest.

By 1941, a building to house the activities of the church had been constructed at Kumbang Pasang on the land donated by Mr. George Ah Foott. The school building by this time included a small chapel and living quarters for the resident priest. The priest was also the principal of the school.

During the Japanese Occupation of 1942-45, Fr. Piet de Wit together with the other priests were interned by the Japanese and sent to Batu Lintang, Kuching. The Japanese authorities used the church for their activities while the Anglicans used the school building for their services.

After the war, the school was re-established and managed by Mr. George Newn Ah Foott with his daughters as the teachers. The Mill Hill Missionary priests continued to come to Brunei from Labuan such as Fr. McCarthy, Fr. Ben Walsh and Fr. William Smit. It was Fr. Smit who gave the school the name St. George's School, after its founder and benefactor.

In 1953, Fr. Delaney was appointed as the resident priest. He was instrumental in constructing many buildings. He extended the school and constructed a new church. This building later became the Parish Hall. Fr. Delaney single-handedly taught the 12 Form One students in 1963.

The school building was rebuilt 1963. Fr. Conway was appointed to St. George's School from July 1964 to June 1965. Mrs. Paula Mah started teaching at St. George's School in January 1964. She was in charge of the Form Two students. It was also the time when the school uniforms patterns were chosen by the students and permission was granted by Fr. Conway. He was followed by Fr. Wolbers, who was appointed as Acting Rector and School Principal in September 1966. He also made the school uniform official.

The 12 students sat for the Sarawak Junior Exams in 1965 and scored 100% passes. This excellent performance was published in the Borneo Bulletin. By January 1969, Fr. Jan Dekker was sent as temporary replacement when Fr. Wolbers left. During this period, Bishop Galvin appointed a layman, Mr. Guy Alwines, as Principal of St. George's School. Fr. Paul Tong was appointed Rector in August 1969. He was followed by Fr. Francis de Vries in 1970 and by Fr. Thomas Keogan.

Fr. Jan Heuschen managed the school from 1972 and took over from Fr. Keogan who left in 1978. Fr. Heuschen was an excellent administrator, who was firm but friendly, demanding but generous. After working in Brunei for thirteen years, Fr. Jan Heuschen left in October 1984. Fr. Dunne took over for a short while until Fr. Peter Chiang was transferred to Bandar from the Seria Parish. In 1991 Fr. Chiang and Fr. McClorey had to leave Brunei. The departure of the last two foreign priests was a time of great trial with the burden of responsibility falling into the hands of the single local priest, Bishop Cornelius Sim.

Chung Hwa Middle School

OUR HISTORY

To provide quality education to Tiong Hwa community in Brunei, Kapitan China Ong Boon Pang and few dignitaries, after much effort, established a school called York Choi School in 1918. The school had a humble start where it only rented a two-story shop lot as its classroom without a building of its own.

In 1922, the school was named Chung Hwa School and only 16 years later in 1938, the school made a major breakthrough with its own premises situated at Jalan Bendahara (approximately the vacant space of the current Parliament)

In 1940, Kapitan China Ong Boon Pang passed away peacefully after chairing the school board for 22 years and his great contribution in laying a solid foundation for the school is still remember and much appreciated.

In 1954, Lim Teck Hoo was elected as the new School Board.

In 1955, the school commenced its secondary level and changed its name to Chung Hwa Middle School, BSB.

In 1957, the government of Brunei subsidised the school and paid for the teachers' salary, administration cost and the construction cost of the basic school facilities. Moreover, free lunch, and later changed into free beverage, was provided to fellow students from 1959 to 1969.

In 1959, a comprehensive learning curriculum was successfully implemented at the school with its upper secondary level introduced in 1959. The total student population surged, surpassing the 1000 benchmark.

In 1962, one two-storey building was completed with the financing from both government and donation from the community. In 1962, the school launched its kindergarten level.

In 1968, a stadium was in completion.

In 1970, the government withdrawing its financial support to the school fomented financial constraints in the Chung Hwa Middle School, BSB. The crisis was solved after the Tiong Hwa Community volunteered to support the school in a form of monthly donation and the kind benefaction provided by the philanthropic Kapitan China Awang Lim Teck Hoo and other board members.

In 1971, the medium of instruction was changed to English for Upper Secondary Science Streams.

In 1972, the school was honoured when Al-Marhum Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Sa'adul Khairi Waddin consented to officiate the 50th school anniversary. At the same time, a four-storey building was completed to cater for the needs of its secondary students.

In 1974, in line with the national policy, Friday was declared a weekend holiday. The school syllabus was adapted to echo the national syllabus where English and Bahasa Melayu were taught to primary students. After 1975, the medium of instruction of the school, except Mandarin, Bahasa Melayu, History, Music, Physical Education (PE), Arts and Moral, was aptly changed to English.

St. Andrew’s School

OUR HISTORY

January 1956 saw a significant era in the history of St. Andrew’s School; her institution.

Canon Paul Chong En Siong always had in mind that for the church to nurture her young was through the teaching in Christian schools. Even though it was no easy task, with the help of parishioners, friends and family, he was able to establish the first Anglican school in Brunei town.

St. Andrew’s started from humble beginnings; with only 70 students, 3 teachers and a minute area of learning. Due to lack of resources, the school could only cater for the lower learning classes-the highest being Primary Four.

Though St. Andrew’s School had begun in a very small way, there were difficulties to be faced-difficulties such as in having to cope with the great differences in age in a class, the poor facilities, and difficulties on the administrative side. These were overcome and by the end of 1957, the school still existed. In 1964, the school moved from the church vicarage to its present site, benevolently donated by Dato Ong Kim Kee. Thus from this very small beginning, this mustard seed, St. Andrew’s School has grown into what it is today. It is Canon Paul’s wish that the school “continue to grow and prosper”.

At present, St. Andrew’s has fully grown to a fully equipped institution of learning which can accommodate up to 1600 students.

St. Andrew’s School has not wasted time or opportunities in its service and position in public education. In 1995, Computer Studies was introduced to our Secondary One students. In 2000, a Mandarin Club was formed to cater those who wants to learn the language. At the same time, sports, games and other Extra Curricular Activities are also encouraged and expanded. The school will continue its role in the country with a commitment to excellence in education for the school children in Negara Brunei Darussalam.

THE SCHOOL CREST

The crown stands for loyalty to duly constituted authority; ‘S.A.’ stands for our Patron Saint Andrew, Apostle and Martyr; the white saltire on the blue shield is the symbol of that saint; the torch burning lamp and lotus flower are the western and eastern symbols of learning respectively. The aim of the school is to present knowledge as a universal heritage and not merely as an exclusive national monopoly.

Motto:Courage and Love.

Vision:Impacting and transforming lives, contributing positively to society.

Mission:

• To promote quality holistic education with diverse learning opportunities for students to enable them to reach their full potential with pursuit of excellence.

• To develop upright character by instilling integrity, mutual respect and tolerance for others.
