    have just seen the ad for the management role in Brunei. I would love the adventure but have concerns about my 9 year old and secondary education there. Can you help me? It says on the MOD web that the local international school is week boarding does this mean my daughter would have to board? would it be possible to just attend daily? or is distance an issue?

    I had researched the same thing sun seeker a while ago when I was considering Brunei. The school I was lloking at was about half way between Bandar and Seri so it would have been a sixty minute commute each day which is doable.
    I believe however that where the defence force school is located is a much longer journey and it would mean weekly boarding. If your child is nine, there are a few years before secondary schooling rears its ugly head though. Could you not go out there for three years and then decide whether you like it enough to consider boarding?
    Also, things may change in that time. I'm sure ISB has set a branch of the school in KB and by the time your daughter is old enough for secondary, it may have grown enough to incorporate a secondary stream. I understand your qualms about boarding however, and it is something I would not want for my daughter.
