It is one of the best boarding facilities in South East Asia and is a vibrant, busy and wonderful place for children to live and work. Located a five minute walk from the teaching facilities, yet secure within the campus grounds.
Boarding at Jerudong International School is flourishing and resident male and female boarders are divided amongst four houses: Eagle, Ibis, Kingfisher and Osprey. There are two male boarding houses and two female, catering for students from Year 7 to Year 13. As far as possible, students of similar ages are roomed together, each House with a range of approximately 64 students in rooms of one, two, three, four or five according to age.
The purpose built accommodation is located on the extensive school campus within easy walking distance of the school facilities. JIS provides excellent accommodation. A fleet of buses transport the weekly boarders to and from the Brunei towns of Mumong, Seria and Kuala Belait and also the town of Miri just across the border in Sarawak, on Friday afternoon and returns them each Sunday evening.
Each boarding house has student lounges/common rooms, kitchens and in-situ accommodation for live-in tutors/ Matrons. There are modern computer study rooms for the younger students in which they undertake their evening’s homework in a single-sex setting with teaching staff and prefect supervision. These computers are also available for recreational use and students in Years 11 - 13 have access to WiFi coverage for use with their own personal laptops. There is a central dining room in which boarders can eat and socialise, savoring food cooked by our specialist caterers. There are music practice rooms, prayer rooms, medical recovery rooms and a residential nurse for any out-of-hours emergencies. Boarders are also able to gain maximum use from the school sports facilities during their recreation time both before and after school.
Every bedroom is furnished with a full set of bedroom furniture and linen though many choose to personalise their bedroom space with their own bedding from home, as well as posters and family photos. In addition to the residential tutors and Matrons, each House also has a live in Housemaster or Housemistress who is qualified teacher in JIS.
