In 1964, Datin Glass started a tutorial group for her daughter and one or two friends and taught them by means of a correspondence course sent out by the South Australian Correspondence School. By 1970, the number of students grew and the school moved to a site provided by the Government of Brunei Darussalam at 34 Tapak Kuda, a two-story blue and white painted wooden building on a horse-shoe shaped road. ISB was formally established as an independent school on 1 December 1976 and continued to grow and expand to such an extent that a new site was sourced and acquired in Berakas in 1978. But the school was unable to move because there were no funds to erect suitable buildings. By 1980, the school had 300 students. ISB eventually had to leave Tapak Kuda and move to its current location in Berakas having raised funds through various supporters. HRH Princess Masna officially opened ISB’s new campus on 9 March 1986.
With about 1000 students enrolled at ISB, we have outgrown our current campus. In order to ensure that we provide the very best environment for our students, we are relocating to a new premise in Sungai Hanching with purpose-built buildings and facilities, which will continue to provide a great learning and teaching experience for students and staff. We are aiming to relocate to the new premises in 2014 – a significant year because we will also be celebrating our 50th anniversary of the establishment of ISB. We seek the support of Alumni and Friends to provide additional resources at this exciting and new stage of ISB’s development. Your contribution will celebrate our history and achievements as well as nurture our future thinkers and leaders.
Whether your contribution is large or small, regular or one-off, your support can make a real difference. For direct assistance or further enquiries, please contact Alumni Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
